Benefits for health

  • To induce sleep. Melatonin is good for people who suffer from delayed sleep. This means that they cannot fall asleep until late in the night and then have difficulty waking up in the morning. If this is your case, melatonin may help regulate your sleep cycle, notably by reducing the time it takes you to fall asleep.
  • To avoid nighttime awakenings and early morning insomnia: if you have a tendency to wake up during the night, melatonin can be useful. By regulating your circadian rhythm (that tells you when to sleep or not), melatonin allows you to enjoy a full sleep night.
  • For jet lag: Travel across time zones disrupts the sleep rhythm. Studies have found that melatonin supplements can decrease jet-lag symptoms. To achieve the best results, you should start melatonin supplements on the first day of travel. And takes them at the time corresponding to the time you will go to bed after the trip (when arrived at the destination). You should then take them for several days to help your body adjust to the new rhythm.

How to use it?

Take 1 capsule 45 to 60 minutes before the time you want to sleep. This will give time to the melatonin to enter the blood, and you will feel sleepy. After taking one pill, you should stay in a dark room, or use an eye mask to cover your eyes. This will avoid your body to get confused by conflicting information: melatonin in the blood, and daylight.

Safety / contraindications

Unless you are travelling and will experience a time shift, avoid using this pill during the day. It can indeed disturb your normal sleep cycle.

Pregnancy use

Melatonin has safely been used during pregnancy up to 3-5mg per day. However, we recommend you to avoid it during first trimester, and to ask your doctor. If you suffer from mild insomnia, have a look at the other supplements for insomnia, or herbs for insomnia. Some might be more interesting.
