Why I Take Melatonin Before Bed Every Night

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, I’m the kind of person who likes to be prepared. For me, that means taking melatonin before bed every night.

Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced in your body that helps regulate your natural wake-sleep cycle. It’s usually released late at night when it gets dark and signals your body to start winding down for bedtime.

The problem is, many of us don’t get enough exposure to natural light during the day – either because of our lifestyles or because we’re stuck inside all day due to work or other commitments. This can lead to our bodies not producing enough melatonin, which can make it difficult for us to fall asleep at night. That’s where taking an extra dose of melatonin comes in handy!

I’ve been using melatonin for several years now and I’ve found that it helps me fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer than if I didn’t take it. It’s also great for helping me adjust my sleep schedule if I need to travel across time zones or stay up late for special events like parties or concerts. Taking a walk, and then melatonin before bed, gives me the peace of mind that I’m doing something proactive about my sleep health so that I can function optimally during the day!

The biggest advantage of taking melatonin as opposed to other sleeping aids is its safety profile – there are no long-term side effects associated with its use! Additionally, there are very few contraindications (medications which should not be taken together) between melatonin and other medications or supplements, so you don’t have to worry about any potential interactions when taking this supplement each night.

Of course, everyone’s experience with melatonin will be different depending on their individual body chemistry and lifestyle habits. Some people may find they only need a small dose while others might benefit from higher doses depending on their needs. The best way to know what works best for you is by experimenting with different amounts until you find what works best for you personally.

It’s important to note that just because something is natural doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t have any side effects – some people might experience headaches after taking certain forms of melatonin (such as extended release tablets) so it’s always wise to discuss any potential side effects with your doctor before starting any new supplement regimen! Additionally, pregnant women should always consult their physician before taking any type of supplement including melatonin since high doses could potentially cause harm in unborn babies.

Overall though, I feel much more rested when I take a nightly dose of melatonin before bed each evening – which helps me stay alert and energized during my busy days spent working from home! Taking this simple step has made such a difference in my quality of life and has enabled me to enjoy better health overall – both physically and mentally – thanks to this one small change in my daily routine.
