Notes:
a biogenic amine that is found in animals and plants. in mammals, melatonin is produced by the pineal gland. its secretion increases in darkness and decreases during exposure to light. melatonin is implicated in the regulation of sleep, mood, and reproduction. melatonin is also an effective antioxidant. Melatonin, also known chemically as N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine, is a naturally occurring compound found in animals, plants and microbes. In animals, circulating levels of the hormone melatonin vary in a daily cycle, thereby allowing the entrainment of the circadian rhythms of several biological functions. (Wikipedia)
