Melatonin is a hormone produced in the brain by the pineal gland from serotonin. It is used primarily to support sleep. It is also commonly used to reduce jet lag. Low melatonin levels are considered a very common cause of sleeplessness.
Several double-blind studies have shown that melatonin supplementation is effective in promoting sleep when melatonin levels are low; however, if an individual takes melatonin when levels are not reduced, then it reportedly has no effect.
For individuals who are deficient in glutathione, melatonin is important because it stimulates the production of glutathione peroxidase.
