  • Focus On: Melatonin

    What it is: Melatonin is a hormone made in a small gland in the brain called the pineal gland that helps regulate your sleep and wake cycles. The body naturally makes a small amount of melatonin, but levels seem to drop slowly with age. Levels begin to increase in mid-to-late evening and drop in the early hours of the morning.
