What is Melatonin?

Melatonin is a hormone that is primarily secreted in the pineal gland, a minute, pea-sized organ located in the venter of the brain between the two hemispheres. Shaped like a tiny pine cone (hence the name), the pineal gland is filled with nerve cells that respond to light or darkness (some biologists refer to the pineal as the “third eye” for this reason). Through its secretion of melatonin, the pineal gland acts as the body’s central clock, telling the brain and other organs when it’s time to … [Read more...]
