  • What is Melatonin and how does it work as a Natural Sleep Aid?

    Melatonin is one of the most important hormones in the human body, but its importance was not fully understood until fairly recently. It was first discovered in the early 1900s when scientists were researching changes in pigmentation on tadpoles.[1] They found that feeding tadpoles extracts from cow pineal gland caused the tadpoles to turn a lighter shade.[2] However, it wasn’t until the mid-1970s that researchers figured out its role in maintaining the human circadian rhythm[3], and its antioxidant effects were only discovered in the early 1990s![4]

    In fact, it wasn’t until the mid-1990’s that researchers discovered this hormone’s presence in plants, and they’re still trying to figure out all its functions in plant species. So far, they've worked out that it is also involved in regulating the circadian rhythm, protecting plant cells, and that it might be involved in regulating plant growth.[5]
