Many of us often wonder why the older we get the harder it is for us to sleep. We see it all the time. Older people not being able to sleep well and younger people especially kids are able to get all the rest they need. Sometimes we look to medication to help us with all of this but it may not be a good idea to do so all time unless it is more on the natural side that allows very little side effects if there are any.
Melatonin is a hormone which is naturally produced by the body. It produced by the pineal gland and is about the size of a pea and is located in the middle of the brain. This is the kind of hormone that responds well to the dark and is inhibited by light. Melatonin is responsible for different functions in the body but one of the main functions it has is to aid the regulation of sleep cycles. It is the hormone which tells us we are tired and that we are ready for our nap time to reenergize ourselves. Its cycle is also easily disrupted by changes in schedule like for example having changes in schedules at work or jetlag, these are the reasons why sometimes we are not able to easily fall as sleep and rest whenever we change our routine.
