The super hormone melatonin is significantly responsible for our sleep. Melatonin is a hormone that can be produced by the body itself and is mainly synthesized in the pineal gland of the brain. However, how much melatonin is produced by the body depends on our eyes. This is because the less light falls on the retina, the more of the so-called "sleep hormone" melatonin is produced and released. This means that when daylight decreases, the body receives the information to switch to sleep mode.
Melatonin has been known and researched for over 100 years.
- Melatonin helps to shorten the time it takes to fall asleep
- Melatonin helps alleviate the subjective sensation of jet-lag if at least 0.5 mg of melatonin is ingested on the first day of travel just before bedtime and on the first day after arrival at destination
Melatonin is highly fat soluble, so we offer our melatonin product dissolved in MCT oil (coconut based).
Who does not know this? The tiredness is great, but hardly arrived in bed the sleep does not want to come. The thoughts circle and do not come to the rest and even if finally the sleep has come, this does not mean still for a long time a through and/or again falling asleep. An unhappy cycle begins. The pressure to finally fall asleep triggers further stress and tension. Often one feels very alone with the problem, but this is not true! Meanwhile, every third adult suffers from sleep disorders.
Factors that negatively influence our melatonin production:
- Computer, TV, cell phone and other electronic devices that strain our eyes (especially in the evening)
- Smoking, co-fine (tea and coffee) and excessive alcohol consumption
- Constant stress
- Certain medications (e.g. ASA, cortisone, beta blockers)
- Irregular sleep rhythms
At what point are sleep disorders?
If the problems with falling asleep and sleeping through the night occur regularly at least three times a week over a period of one month, we speak of sleep disorders. A chronic lack of sleep can have fatal consequences. In everyday life we often suffer from tiredness, loss of performance and fatigue.
The feeling of not being able to cope with everyday life increases and the ability to concentrate decreases. One feels battered and, in the worst case, ill. The quality of life decreases and the restrictions increase. A deep sleep is so important, even vital! Crucial recovery processes take place during sleep. Our brain regenerates, information from the day is processed and stored in memory. The memory is prepared for the next day and makes room for the new events. We remain mentally fit. Heart rate and blood pressure decrease when we fall asleep and in the deep sleep phase.
Our musculature comes to rest. We relax. Other benefits of a good night's sleep include a strengthened immune system and balanced hormones.
The hormone melatonin in particular is essential for good sleep. Melatonin controls the day-night rhythm. The sleep-promoting hormone displaces the stress hormone cortisol, which keeps us awake during the day.
The body can produce the natural substance itself, provided other essential hormones are present in sufficient quantities. Melatonin is a metabolic product of serotonin. When it gets dark, the pineal gland starts to convert serotonin into melatonin. The two hormones are therefore directly related. The happiness hormone serotonin has a mood-lifting and relaxing effect. If there is a lack of the happiness hormone during the day, the body cannot convert it to melatonin in the evening. Often, persistent sleep disorders are then accompanied by depression or depressive tension because serotonin is missing. An additional intake of melatonin is not a permanent solution, but can help to restore a good balance. Melatonin preparations increase the melatonin level in the blood only for a short time and are intended as a natural sleep aid. In no case they are to be compared with sleeping pills, which act on the body for several hours.
