Natural Melatonin

As darkness falls at the end of each day, melatonin production rises.

In the morning, when daylight hits your retina, neural impulses cause production of the hormone to slow.

Clearly, light and darkness are the primary factors setting the rhythms of melatonin production.

However, they’re not the only factors involved.

In fact, it’s been found a variety of regular daily routines can strengthen your rhythm of melatonin production.

Here are a few simple ways you can help your body keep high levels of this important hormone.

*Eat regular meals.

Your rhythm of melatonin production is strengthened by regular daily routines.

Keep your mealtimes as regular as possible to keep your body in sync with the rhythms of the day.

*Keep your diet light at night.

When melatonin production begins after nightfall, your digestive process is slowed.

So, any heavy foods you eat close to bedtime may lead to digestive problems, which can make it difficult to sleep.

To get the sleep you need, eat small, light meals in the late evening.

*Avoid stimulants.

Stimulants like coffee, tea, and caffeine-containing medications and soft drinks can interfere with melatonin production by interfering with your sleep.

As much as possible, eliminate these stimulants from your diet and lifestyle.

Or, at the very least, allow at least 4-5 hours between the time you consume them and bedtime.

*Avoid exercising late at night.

Vigorous activity delays melatonin secretion.

If you exercise in the morning, you’ll reinforce healthful sleeping habits leading to regular melatonin production.

For best results, do your morning exercise outdoors, in the morning light.
