Production is triggered when the sun goes down, signaling the body to prepare for sleep. Melatonin plays a key role in the body's circadian rhythm - the Sleep-Wake cycle - by helping to establish normal sleep patterns and promote a more restful, relaxing sleep. Getting Good Sleep: In addition to helping you wake up feeling refreshed and energized, getting good sleep has a range of long-term benefits. Getting better sleep can contribute to a healthier life overall with everything from sharper brain functioning to more balanced weight. Melatonin is a nighttime sleep aid for occasional sleeplessness.
