A powerful hormone release from the pineal gland called melatonin helps us get a good night’s sleep. But when we use electronic devices till late night, the exposure to light suppresses melatonin’s natural release and we fall out of the circadian clock. So for obvious reasons, it is critical to turn off all lights before we sleep. Vigorous workouts late in the evenings also alter the melatonin clock.

Melatonin supplements are available in the market with no known side effects. These can be used in the early evening to help kick start your sleep cycle, or you could say ‘your circadian clock’. For shift workers, world travelers, and late night party-goers alike, it's best to take melatonin before bed and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Melatonin has been studied extensively in people with cardiovascular disease and these studies show that melatonin increases the protective HDL and decreases triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.
