Working in concert with your body’s circadian rhythm, melatonin is a hormone the body creates that tells you when it is time for bed and it is also an antioxidant used by the body. Many people are affected by poor sleep or a lack of sleep. This can lead to complications for the body, from depleting energy to lowering productivity and affecting diet and exercise routines. Melatonin can also help with jet lag, which affects the body’s internal clock by being in a new time zone.
