Overview Melatonin is a natural substance secreted by the pineal gland in your brain. It is recognized as a key element in regulating your daily metabolic rates and is synchronized with your biological clock. Irregularities in melatonin production can cause sleep problems. When your sleep patterns are disturbed, by travel or shift work for example, supplemental melatonin can help reset your body’s ‘clock’ and improve your length of sleep and sleep quality.
