Melatonin is used to treat jet lag and sleep disturbances. 

How does it work?

Melatonin is a hormone that the body produces naturally. The hormone acts as a biological indicator for sleeping rhythms as it starts to be produced when the sun goes down, inducing sleepiness in the body.

When travelling, the body's natural sleep pattern is disturbed, especially when moving through time zones. Melatonin will tell your body when it needs to sleep so it is a very useful tablet to have when you are changing your sleep patterns or travelling into new time zones.
