Sleep is an extremely important physiological process that affects all aspects of health. According to Harvard Women’s Health Watch and Harvard Medical School, there are six reasons to get
enough sleep. Those include improving learning and memory, balancing metabolism and weight,
assisting personal safety by preventing daytime lapses from causing mistakes, enhancing mood,
promoting cardiovascular health and supporting stronger immune function. Research has shown
that melatonin is a critical hormone that may influence sleep to improve health, among other functions.
Melatonin is the primary hormone of the pineal gland that helps to regulate other hormones and
maintains the body’s circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is a twenty-four hour cycle driving
physiological processes of the body and plays a crucial role in determining when to fall asleep and
when to awaken. This rhythm is balanced by the dark and light cycle of the day where darkness
stimulates melatonin production and light suppresses its activity. The “clock” that regulates the
circadian rhythm is located in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) which are a group of cells located
in the hypothalamus. The SCN receives information about the quantity of light through the eyes,
interprets the information and sends it to the pineal gland, which secretes melatonin in response.
The melatonin cycle may be disrupted by many influences and, once disturbed, the health of the
body is compromised. Common disturbances may be due to overexposure to light in the evening
and lack of light during the day, jet lag, poor vision, etc. Growing evidence suggests that low-frequency electromagnetic fields may also interfere with melatonin’s action.
