Will Melatonin Help Your Health and Insomnia?

Do you know that experiencing sleep problems can have severe consequences on your health?

That’s why many people take melatonin as it promotes healthy sleep-wake cycles. This is primarily because poor sleep comes with numerous problems including low energy that lowers your productivity and increases health risks like diabetes and blood pressure problems.

An overview of this marvel hormone – melatonin

Human bodies derive this hormone from serotonin (a neurotransmitter) and tryptophan (an amino acid). Melatonin functions in harmony with the following two protein receptors:

  • MT1
  • MT2

These receptors regulate different phases of sleep. While MT1 controls REM sleep or deep sleep, MT2 is responsible for the sleeping stage that proceeds to dream. Since these molecules exist in numerous immune cells and organs, it suggests that melatonin can control the immune system functioning and other systems as well.
