The simple answer is, well, kind of. Melatonin is already in your body. It’s a natural hormone that your body makes all on its own, and one of the biggest drivers of whether your body makes enough is light. Blue light, specifically, can impact your body’s own production of Melatonin. You know, the kind your computer screen gives off, the kind your tablet throws your way and the kind your cell phone beams right at you as you’re scrolling through your newsfeed in bed. Having blue lights all around doesn’t necessarily mean you aren’t making enough Melatonin, but if you occasionally have trouble falling asleep, you might want to consider how much blue light you’re being exposed to around bedtime.

Historically, we humans relied on sunlight to wake us up, and the lack of it to let us know when it was time to get to sleep. In a more connected world that never stops,  we may need to try a bit harder to make sure our environment isn’t negatively impacting our ability to fall asleep. Because getting enough sleep is one of the best things we can do to keep stress at bay.

If you struggle with occasional sleeplessness, De-Stress + Snooze, with an optimal level of Melatonin, may be just the thing to help you relax, de-stress and sleep*.
