What are sleep supplements?
Supplements based on natural ingredients can support you with a good night’s sleep. For example, they can help activate certain natural substances or hormones in the body. This can help you fall asleep faster, sleep through and wake up rested.
One such hormone is melatonin. Melatonin regulates your day and night rhythm. As soon as it gets dark, your body starts producing melatonin and this makes you sleepy. Melatonin production may be disrupted for various reasons, such as short winter days, jet lag, stress, aging, smoking, too little daylight and too much blue light before sleeping.
Melatonin is a popular sleep supplement. However, there are often side effects associated with this and this is the case with several sleep supplements. Melatonin is also a hormone and therefore you have to be extra careful with this. For example, do proper research into the safety and side effects of a sleep supplement.
It is important for health that only natural ingredients are added to such supplements. Artificial ingredients, such as fillers, brighteners or anti-caking agents can have harmful effects on the body and health.
