Sleep hormone helps with sleep!

This kind of goes in the "thanks but I already know" file. However it is now official that melatonin helps with poor sleep aka insomnia.

To my mind it obvious - melatonin is a sleep hormone - taking a sleep hormone would help you with yours sleep. Sure you don't know if the melatonin is absorbed across the stomach/intestinal wall, then transported in the blood to the brain boundary, makes it across the brain boundary and activates the right part of the brain.

So I guess it shouldn't be a given, the effect might just be placebo...... however I have really enjoyed using it!
