Melatonin is well known among frequent travellers, especially those that travel long distances. It is also used by people with mild sleep disorders, or for travellers suffering from jet lag. Melatonin is actually a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland in our brains, and helps us know when it is time to sleep and when to awake.

Many travellers take a Melatonin pills to help control this sleep cycle while they are travelling. There are two types of Melatonin, natural which is produced from pineal glands in animals, and synthetic, which is entirely man made, doctors generally strongly recommend the synthetic variety so do ensure which is which, when you purchase any Melatonin.

As we are not doctors, we strongly recommend consulting a doctor before taking Melatonin. It is also very important to note that some countries have very strict regulations on what medications are allowed to be carried into their countries, so do make sure you check whether the country you are travelling to allows you to carry Melatonin, and what documents may be required. This includes countries you may only be transiting in.
