Benefits at a Glance
Melatonin is a hormone derived from the amino acid tryptophan. Melatonin is primarily synthesized by our pineal gland and released mostly at night to make falling asleep easier. In addition to healthy sleep support, melatonin has strong antioxidant properties and has been shown to support immune health, and healthy brain function, and more. Aging, jet lag, shift work and vision health affect the body's melatonin release.
