  • 2. Melatonin for sleep Melatonin is a hormone that's naturally produced in the body by the pineal gland, a reddish—grayendocrine gland that's about the same size as a pea and is shaped like a tiny pine cone. It's located near the center of the brain between the two hemispheres where the two ‘ ‘ ~ halves of the thalamus are joined together. “ iii The pineal gland secretes melatonin in sync with our circadian rhythms. .1 Me| atonin's primary function in the body is to regulate our sleep-wake cycles. Normally, our melatonin levels begin to rise as it gets later in the day as our pineal gland begins to produce more of the hormone in the mid— to late-evening. Then during the night, our pineal gland secretes our highest levels of melatonin and they remain high for most of the night. By early morning, when the sun begins to lighten up our day, our pineal gland cuts back on melatonin production, telling our body to wake up and be ready for a new day. As we get older, our natural levels of melatonin slowly begin to drop. Children seem to have the highest levels of the hormone while some elderly adults make very small amounts of it or none at all. sprayahlesleepmm - goodsleepsystemsmm
  • 3. Melatonin pills The concept of using a melatonin supplement to help us sleep is relatively new. Scientists began to discover -. _ its properties in the late 1980's and early 1990's J and pharmaceutical companies began producing melatonin pills in tablet sizes between 3 — 5 { milligrams because that was thought to be the A correct amount to help people get the effects they . needed for a restful night's sleep. However, the latest 1 1' research shows that melatonin pills contain far too ‘ — -*/ high a dosage than the body needs. The latest recommendations are that the average male needs only around 150 micrograms of melatonin and the average female only about 100 micrograms, so the melatonin pills on store shelves today contain much higher amounts of the drug than needed for restful sleep. / Taking high doses of melatonin can create short-term feelings of depression, headaches, dizziness, stomach cramps, daytime sleepiness and irritability. The newest and most effective way to administer melatonin safely is not to take melatonin pills but instead use a melatonin spray that can be applied in measured smaller doses directly to the skin. This bypasses the body's digestive system, and unlike melatonin pills, makes the application of melatonin much more natural and effective. sprayahlesleepcom - goodsleepsystemscom

  • 8. lifestule changes A natural sleep supplement can only go so far in helping you get the sleep you need. Today’s sleep experts suggest you should also consider these lifestyle changes to get the right amount of sleep every night: Your bedroom should be as free from noise and light as possible. Invest in heavy curtains and window blinds, and use earplugs and even possibly an eye mask. Your evening meal should be on the light side, and you should eat a no later than two hours before going to bed. Don't drink any caffeinated drinks at least four to six hours before bedtime. Caffeine will stay in your system and keep you awake. A little regular exercise such as walking will help you reduce stress, and you'll sleep better. But don't do it within two hours of bedtime or you'll have trouble falling asleep. If you must take a daytime nap, do it in the early afternoon and not after 5:00 or you'll have a problem going back to sleep later that night. sprayahlesleepcom ° gooIls| eepsystems. conI
  • 9. lifestule changes Any tasks you may be working on should be completed at least an hour before bedtime to give your brain time to settle down and relax. Any emotional issues should not be discussed right before bedtime or the irritation and stress will probably keep you awake. Keep all your pets outside the sleeping area so that you have the room all to yourself and won't be bothered by strange movements or noises during the night. Make sure that the bedroom thermostat is set to a cool and comfortable temperature and that there is adequate ventilation. spraya| i|es| eep. coIi - g00ISIee| lSYStElllS. COI| I

Melatonin seems to be truly a miracle health hormone that we'll continue to find increasingly valuable in helping us sleep.
