Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm, an internal 24-hour time-keeping system that affects how and when we fall asleep and wake up. Levels of melatonin are low during the day and rise during the normal sleeping period at night. The amount of melatonin released at night varies among individuals and appears to diminish with age.
