Problems with sleeping
Sleep is an important activity that everybody needs to function properly. Effective rest is not only about the appropriate length of sleep, but also its quality. Have trouble sleeping? You need to know that sleep problems are common in the entire global population. The issue of „sleep problems“ is more complex. It concerns, among others prolonged falling asleep, excessive waking after falling asleep, short total sleep time, poor sleep efficiency, or poor sleep quality (1). It is hard not to mention the circadian rhythm here. Do you know what he is?
Circadian rhythm – what does it mean?
Sleep regulation is processed by the physiology of the circadian rhythm, or sleep/wake cycle. The circadian rhythm is the 24-hour internal clock in our brain that regulates the cycles of alertness and sleepiness in response to changes in the light in our environment. Our physiology and behavior are shaped by the rotation of the Earth on its axis. This biological circadian system has evolved to help people adapt to changes in our environment and predict changes in radiation, temperature and food availability. Without this endogenous circadian clock, our body would not be able to optimize energy expenditure and its internal physiology (2).
Melatonin is a key element in circadian rhythms
Melatonin is involved in the regulation of sleep and wake cycles. Its most famous goal is its role in promoting sleep. Endogenous melatonin is a naturally produced hormone that is synthesized and secreted mainly in the pineal gland. Melatonin production begins with tryptophan, which is converted in a multi-stepped pathway to serotonin in other parts of the brain. Part of the produced serotonin goes to the pineal gland, where it is converted into melatonin in a cyclic, light-dependent process (3).
Melatonin acts as a regulator in the internal determination of biological rhythms
Melatonin is becoming more and more popular for promoting total sleep time, helping with jet lag fatigue, or balancing the circadian rhythm resulting from jet lag and rotational shift work. Evidence suggests that melatonin may reduce the time it takes for people with delayed sleep phase syndrome to fall asleep (ie, sleep is delayed by two or more hours compared to conventional bedtime, making it difficult to wake up at the desired time). It can also help rearrange the body’s sleep-wake cycle (4).
In conclusion – what you need to know about melatonin:
Melatonin helps in shortening the time needed to fall asleep. Its beneficial effect occurs when 1 mg is consumed shortly before going to bed (5). Each capsule of Essence Melatonin contains 1 mg of melatonin – which is exactly what you need! Properly conducted supplementation can support the body. Admit that getting up each day full of energy is a rather enjoyable experience, right? Melatonin is also recommended for people who work in shifts, including nightwear, and for people who often travel between time zones. Reach for the support we offer you!
