Melatonin is a sleep hormone that supports the natural sleep- wake cycle and can assist individuals with delayed sleep onset, jet lag and insomnia.
Levels of melatonin in our body are highest at night and peak around 2-4 am and gradually fall during the second half of the night.
Today’s Contest Question*
True or False: Melatonin is a supplement that we get dependent on, after only a few weeks of use. Additionally, we should wean off slowly in order to avoid serious withdrawal symptoms.
