Melatonin is the main hormone produced by the pineal gland or epiphysis located in the centre of the brain. It is a fat-soluble hormone involved in regulating circadian rhythms and also the infradian rhythms that, especially in mammals, govern seasonal responses to variations in the length of daylight. Melatonin production follows a rhythm that is repeated every twenty-four hours. It starts around midnight and peaks at around 2 to 4 am, then progressively decreases until about 8 am. In fact the presence of light stops production.
Children have high levels of melatonin, which then decrease with age. At 70, production has fallen by 90%. The main purpose of melatonin is to regulate the human sleep-wake cycle. Supplemental melatonin is a synthetic product that is practically identical to the natural hormone.

The recommended dosage is 3mg about 1 hr before going to sleep to be taken every day at the same time. Treatment must only last for the time it takes to restore natural conditions or overcome sleep disorders (about 8 weeks maximum).

Useful in sleep disorders caused by jet lag, particularly in people travelling across several time zones, which can disrupt normal sleep patterns.Can also be used when the body's natural production of melatonin is altered, such as in older adults or people suffering from neurological disorders and blindness.It can also be useful for people who find it difficult to fall asleep, work night shifts or are sensitive to changes in the seasons.
