Melatonin: why do you need an extra supply in spring?

Published on

Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, which is involved in regulating, among other things, processes related to biological rhythms, most notably sleep. It is considered a essential ingredient for rest but until recently its virtues were unknown.

What are the general health benefits of melatonin?

Melatonin helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle, which is essential for mental and therefore also physical health. "Adequate sleep contributes to a healthy body, strengthens the immune system, and promotes cognitive and emotional development," explain Jelly Pills.

It is therefore even more essential in children, whose growth must be accompanied by optimal rest according to their age (and activity). Also in children and adults with sleep disorders, such as insomnia, melatonin can help establish increasingly regular patterns, helping to improve rest and positively impact overall health.

An ideal reinforcement for today's fast-paced lifestyle.

The truth is that melatonin (or N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is found in all animal species and also in plants, fungi and bacteria, as well as in some algae, and in concentrations that vary according to the day/night cycle of each organism. Thus, its contribution is considered vital for the regulation of functions not only of biorhythm and sleep, but also for regulating situations such as anxiety or improving memory. "In addition, in situations such as jet lag, melatonin can make it easier to adapt to new sleep schedules. "It allows metabolism and biorhythm to adjust more quickly at the same time, thus minimising negative effects on health and performance," the brand adds.

Why an extra daily intake is sufficient (and necessary) in the springtime

Although melatonin is naturally present in foods such as rice, oats and sweetcorn (the foods with the highest melatonin content per gram), it is a good idea to boost our body with an extra supply, especially at times such as spring and when the weather changes. In this way, we will help the sleep cycle to perform its function more correctly and avoid the ups and downs of energy as a result of asthenia and the imbalances inherent in the spring timetable until the arrival of summer.

Why the gummy format is also beneficial for children

It is no coincidence that melatonin in jelly bean format has recently gained popularity among children. "Firstly, it is an easy and convenient format to take, which makes them more appealing to children who may have difficulty swallowing unfamiliar pills or liquids. The second is the soft texture and sweet taste of the gummies make them more palatable to children, which can make the process of taking melatonin more enjoyable. In addition, the gummy format can make melatonin seem less like a medicine and more like a sweet or snack, which can help reduce children's resistance to taking it. This can be especially helpful for children who have an aversion to medication or who are reluctant to take supplements.

How to take Sweet Sleep?
