According to recent studies, it has been found that 50 to 70 million adults in the U.S. are affected by a sleep disorder (American Sleep Association [ASA], 2021). 25 million adults in the U.S. have obstructive sleep apnea (ASA, 2021). In addition to that, 30% to 40% of adults in the U.S. report symptoms of insomnia at some point annually (American Journal of Managed Care, 2020).
These statistics are scary! But it also gives us an insight into how prevalent sleep-related issues are and how there’s a dire need to address them. Melatonin for sleep was all the rage a few years ago. As the word spread, millions of people turned to melatonin for sleep support.
At Begum C, we have combined the power of melatonin with CBD and packed it into a delicious gummy to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.
The Melatonin Craze
Produced by all humans and most vertebrates, Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone. There’s a small gland in the brain’s center that Descartes referred to as the ‘seat of the soul’, more commonly known as the pineal gland. This gland secretes the hormone melatonin during nighttime.
Research shows that the pineal gland works by taking in information about the light-dark cycle from the environment and regulates our sleep-wake cycle accordingly.
Production of melatonin in humans starts as soon as we are born and in a time frame of three months, we have stable melatonin levels. As we grow into teenagers, the timings of melatonin release start to vary and as we continue to age, the production slows down altogether. This is why supplementing melatonin for sleep is common for those above the age of 50. What makes it amazing is its safety profile!
Melatonin for Sleep
Most commonly used as a sleeping aid in the United States, its benefits for sleep are confirmed after much research and clinical evidence. When light is available from the sun, the pineal gland keeps the production of melatonin suppressed and keeps us awake. As nighttime approaches, melatonin in the brain increases and prepares your body to drift off to sleep. This is why the term ‘hormone of darkness’ is also used for melatonin.
It works as a promoter of sleep and a soporific. Melatonin for sleep along with CBD work in great synergy as CBD helps lessen anxiety, which might be one of the reasons keeping you awake at night.
