Functions and Mechanism of Action
Supplemental melatonin augments the normal functioning of the pineal gland, supporting the body’s natural sleep cycle. External factors such as travel, shift work and stress affect the body’s production of melatonin, which may impact the onset of sleep and the quality.
Research indicates that supplemental melatonin can decrease the time needed to fall asleep, help to reach a deeper sleep state, and improve the ability to stay asleep. In one study, melatonin supported sleep onset when taken in the evening, and did not cause morning drowsiness.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel design study suggested that melatonin supplementation lowers sleep onset latency and increases total sleep time in subjects.
The phase-shifting effect of melatonin can be beneficial to those experiencing circadian rhythm disturbances. Sleep phase delay or phase advancement is associated with a “free-running” circadian rhythm of more than 24 hours and results in sleep alterations.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving workers with circadian rhythm alterations after transmeridian flights showed melatonin supported their ability to resynchronize the natural circadian body rhythms with the environmental light-dark cycle.
Preliminary research shows that melatonin supplementation before strenuous exercise may modulate oxidative stress-signaling associated with acute stress-induced sports performance.
