Melatonin is well-known for its ability to help those who struggle with sleeping disorders get a good night’s rest. However, melatonin may have more health benefits than you might realize. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the body and is also an antioxidant. Taking melatonin before bed may alleviate and prevent migraines, GERD/acid reflux, and even cholesterol issues!*
In recent studies, researchers have found that taking melatonin 30 minutes before bed may function as a migraine preventive for those suffering from tension headaches and other types of migraines.* Some studies have indicated that melatonin might be an effective treatment for patients with Tinnitus.* This common condition leaves you with a constant ringing in either one or both of your ears. People may be born with this condition or develop it over time due to damage from loud noises such as concerts, machinery, or headphones.
Melatonin may slow the release of cortisol, which could help lower the severity of both anxiety and depression.* Melatonin may also help lower blood pressure levels and cholesterol, and in some cases, relieve GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and heartburn/acid reflux.*
What’s the difference between Melatonin and Melatonin SR?
There are multiple types of melatonin, the two most common being IR (Immediate Release) and SR (Sustained Release). Melatonin IR provides a single potent dose of melatonin. While effective for people who have no problem staying asleep, this type of melatonin quickly leaves the body after only a couple of hours. On the other hand, Melatonin SR gives you a slow, constant, and consistent release of melatonin over eight hours, ideal for those who wake up multiple times throughout the night but cannot return to sleep. The Sustained Release form gradually releases melatonin evenly throughout the night, maintaining a proper balance and a more natural sleep cycle.* This helps regulate your circadian rhythm and leaves you feeling more rested and rejuvenated the next day.
Having a healthy sleep-wake cycle is extremely important to help balance the rest of your day-to-day life. Everyone needs a good night’s sleep to feel productive and rested the next day.
