Melatonin As A Sleep Aid - How To Make It, Not How to Take It

Taking melatonin supplements has not been helpful to me in my quest for better sleep. I have tried different amounts, different brands and time released melatonin. Little did I know at that time that I could influence my own production of melatonin.

There were things I was doing at night AND during the day that suppressed my melatonin secretions and contributed to a less than good night's sleep.

Melatonin is a hormone and a powerful antioxidant. It actually serves lots of different purposes than just helping one to sleep better - like reducing one's risk of cancer and improving one's mood.

Light at night suppresses the production of this important hormone - but that doesn't mean you have to walk around in the dark.

Find out how you can naturally increase your melatonin production and get back to falling asleep quickly and staying asleep:
