Description

What is melatonin?

Sleep is regulated by a hormone produced naturally in the brain called melatonin. In the UK, melatonin is currently licensed to treat insomnia.   In a recent study, it was found that taking melatonin at night after travelling 5 or more easterly time zones decreased jet lag in 8 out of 10 participants of the trial. Melatonin was also found to be effective in reducing jet lag when travelling 2 to 4 time zones.
