Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone produced by the pineal gland that plays a role in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle. It is secreted by the pineal gland after your body senses the fall of darkness at the end of each day, and keeps your body synchronized with the rhythms of day and night. It is also a powerful antioxidant that supports immune system function. As we age, melatonin levels decline, so supplementation is necessary to provide optimal levels of this important hormone. Scientists believe this reduction is the reason why older adults have more trouble sleeping than younger people.
