Produced naturally by your body by the pineal gland, melatonin is a hormone that helps to regulate your sleep cycles. It is affected by light exposure: at night when it is dark, your body releases increased melatonin to help promote sleep.
Certain lifestyles, like working night turn or shift schedules or traveling across time zones (jet lag), can alter the natural production of melatonin. Further, as you age, your body may start to produce less melatonin than it did in your younger years. That’s one of the reasons why seniors often sleep less or have disrupted sleep than they did when they were younger.
When your melatonin levels are imbalanced, it can be detrimental to your sleep cycle and upset your natural circadian rhythm. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to boost your melatonin production naturally.
Melatonin is a crucial hormone in helping you to not only fall asleep more easily at night and remain asleep throughout the night, but it also helps you to stay awake during the daytime. Incorporate the above tips so that when you go to bed at night on your latex mattress, you’ll fall fast asleep and sleep soundly.
