About melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone produced in the pineal gland, the epiphysis of the brain, and its function is primarily to help control our circadian rhythm. The secretion of melatonin makes us sleepy and the levels varies during the day and is affected by light and darkness. The level increases at dusk and is at its highest at night and at its lowest during the day when the light is at its strongest. Some people have too low melatonin production which makes it difficult for them to fall asleep. If you suffer from sleep problems, there are good reasons to test your levels and if our test shows low levels, there are supplements to buy to get your levels up.

Melatonin also helps the body regulate other hormones, our blood pressure and body temperature, as well as acts as an antioxidant and has immune promoting properties. There are also links between low levels of melatonin and depression and premature aging.

Melatonin deficiency

Melatonin is a hormone that is created from the amino acid tryptophan and that the body itself produces in the pineal gland. When the levels of melatonin rise towards the evening, it gives the body a signal that it’s time to sleep which makes you drowsy and tired. If melatonin production is disturbed, you may have difficulty sleeping. Sleep disorders can be caused by various factors such as blindness, jet lag, menopause, rising age, shift work and more. To overcome the sleep problems, you can take extra melatonin in the form of supplements or medication.

The production of melatonin is affected by, among other things, artificial lighting, hard training late in the day, the cycles of the year and aging. By measuring and identifying any imbalances, you can initiate the right treatment to improve melatonin production.

    Kept waking up in the middle of the night, so I tried the melatonin test. It was easy to use and the results were prompt. My levels were higher than normal, which could explain my sleep disruption.

  2. Lucy Anderson

    This test is a blessing! I was struggling with poor sleep and random fatigue. Turns out my melatonin levels were low. Now, I can address this with my doctor.

  3. Sophie Jenkins :)

    So, I was having the weirdest sleep problem – waking up at 3 AM every night like clockwork. Really frustrating! Thought I’d give this test a try and I’m glad I did. Super simple to use and I got my results in no time. Turns out, my melatonin levels are a bit high, could be the reason for my odd sleep pattern. Now I’ve got something solid to take to my doc. Time to get my sleep back to normal, fingers crossed! 🙂

    I’ve always been fascinated by the body’s internal clock and how it affects our daily lives. After years of erratic sleep patterns and reading about the influence of melatonin on sleep-wake cycles, I decided to dive deeper with the Melatonin Test. The comprehensive insights I gained were nothing short of revelatory. The test kit was user-friendly, and I appreciated the meticulous steps laid out to ensure accuracy. Throughout the process, GetTested maintained transparent communication, alleviating any anxieties about the wait. Receiving the results was like fitting the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle. The report didn’t just hand me data; it offered context, helping me grasp how my melatonin levels stacked up against normative benchmarks. Understanding the nuances of when my body produced melatonin was enlightening, explaining so much about my sleep challenges. With this newfound knowledge, I approached a sleep therapist and embarked on a journey to reset my internal clock. The improvements have been transformative, with better sleep, improved mood, and heightened productivity. Every individual should consider this test; it’s a window into one of the most crucial aspects of our wellbeing.

    I’ve been like a zombie for ages – sleepy all the time, no matter how much I slept at night. The test was super easy to use. Got my results back quickly and it turns out my melatonin levels were on the low side. That explains a lot! Now I can figure out how to get my sleep back on track. Really glad I decided to take this test!

    Insomnia had been plaguing me for months. It was not only affecting my sleep but also impacting my daily activities due to the constant fatigue. I came across this test and decided to try it out. was easy to use, just followed the steps and sent it off. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I got my results back. turns out my melatonin levels were out of balance, which could explain the sleep issues. Having these insights, I can now collaborate with my doctor to develop a treatment plan. The test has been instrumental in helping me understand and address my insomnia.

  7. Naomi Reid

    In-depth insights. Transformed my approach to sleep. Highly recommended 🙂

  8. Elaine Harper :)

    Having struggled with insomnia for the better part of a decade, I was desperate for answers. Prescriptions and over-the-counter sleep aids offered only temporary relief, often leaving me groggy the next day. I’d heard about melatonin’s role in regulating sleep but was unsure about how it played into my specific situation. The Melatonin Test was my attempt to understand my body’s natural rhythms better. 🙂 🙂 When the kit arrived, it was neatly packaged, and the instructions were detailed, leaving no room for confusion. Collecting the sample was straightforward, and the process of sending it back was seamless. The waiting period was made more comfortable with consistent updates from the GetTested team, ensuring I was always in the loop. Receiving my results was a pivotal moment. For the first time, I had a detailed breakdown of my melatonin levels, showing clear discrepancies in the amounts my body produced at various times. This information, combined with expert insights provided in the report, was a game-changer. With guidance from my doctor, I’ve now implemented changes that align with my body’s natural clock, and my sleep has improved markedly. 🙂 Opting for the Melatonin Test was more than just seeking answers; it was about regaining control of my life.
