Melatonin is a manmade form of a hormone produced in the brain that helps regulate your sleep and wake cycle.
It has been used in alternative medicine as a likely effective aid in treating insomnia (trouble falling asleep or staying asleep).

Melatonin is not regulated by the FDA in the US and is often sold as a dietary supplement and has not been subjected to the same safety or efficacy requirements as a medicine and information is often limited.

It would be best to speak to your heart specialist before taking melatonin.
