Melatonin supplements

Melatonin supplements are over-the-counter products commonly used to aid sleep. They contain melatonin, which is a hormone naturally produced by the pineal gland in the brain, primarily responsible for regulating the body’s circadian rhythm to manage the natural sleep cycle. The use of these supplements is particularly prevalent among individuals who suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia or whose sleep-wake cycle has been disrupted due to factors like jet lag or shift work. Melatonin supplements can come in various forms, including pills, liquids, and chewables, and are available in different dosages. The effectiveness and safety of melatonin supplements have been the subject of numerous studies, with findings suggesting that while they may be beneficial for short-term use, the long-term effects are still not fully understood. It is also important to note that these supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with the same rigor as prescription medications, which means that the purity and concentration of melatonin in over-the-counter products may vary. As with any supplement, individuals considering melatonin should consult with healthcare providers to ensure it is appropriate for their specific health needs and to understand the potential interactions with other medications.
