According to the European Commission, melatonin helps mitigate the effects of jet lag and helps induce sleep.
EFSA: Melatonin contributes to the alleviation of subjective feelings of jet lag.
Melatonin contributes to the reduction of time taken to fall asleep.
Melatonin production is highest during adolescence and decreases with age. Therefore, taking melatonin improves sleep quality and helps regulate our biological clock.
Melatonin naturally regulates sleep and has none of the side effects of conventional sleeping pills.
Melatonin relieves tension, relaxes the muscles, is naturally sleep inducing, promotes healthy sleep, diminishes grogginess after sleep and reduces night-time awakenings.
In addition, melatonin helps the body to adapt to changes in its biological clock, which helps to avoid jet-lag in travellers.
Sublingual melatonin acts effectively when rapidly absorbed through the buccal mucosa.
Melatonin: Detailed information
Insomnia is lack of sleep or decreased sleep quality. It is a fairly common disorder that may be due to various causes, such as stress, pathological factors, lifestyle, and it negatively affects the individual’s ability to function during the day. To help regulate the sleep cycle and promote rest, melatonin offers an alternative to traditional sleeping pills.
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland from tryptophan and it is regulated by the light-dark cycle. This hormone has several functions: it helps to regulate circadian rhythm and sleep and waking processes, it acts as a neurotransmitter, and also has immunomodulatory and antioxidant properties.
Melatonin’s primary role in the body is regulating day and night cycles, or sleep-wake cycles. Darkness causes the body to produce more melatonin, signalling to the body to prepare for sleep. Conversely, light decreases melatonin production, making the body prepare for waking 1.
Melatonin has a chronoregulatory function, to adjust the sleep phase and resynchronise the biological clock 2: studies to investigate the effect of melatonin on sleep and circadian rhythm have found a clear link between melatonin and circadian rhythm. Melatonin therefore helps to induce sleep in people whose circadian rhythm is disrupted, and can be used in case of insomnia associated with jet lag and for shift workers 3-4.
In addition to its effect on circadian rhythm and the sleep cycle, melatonin has an immunomodulatory and antioxidant function. Its immunomodulatory activity has been demonstrated in in vivo and in vitro studies, where it was seen to act in innate response specifically on the immune system 5. Through its antioxidant activity, melatonin stimulates the synthesis of antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase and glutathione reductase, and can be used in case of neurodegenerative diseases 6-7.
