The Very Useful: Melatonin and Getting SOM


  • What is it?: Your body’s natural sleep hormone, released at night in response to decreased environmental light. Artificial light sources like digital devices can delay natural melatonin release.
  • Melatonin Supplements: Doses of 1-5 mg have been associated with mild improvements in sleep (this isn’t a massively powerful drug)
  • Studied Uses: Jet Lag, Delayed Sleep Onset, Shift Worker Disorder and Insomnia
  • Dosages: Response by dose is variable by person, so start low and see how it goes, many people see good results with microdoses of 0.1-0.5 mg
  • Tolerance: Surprisingly, and uniquely for the sleep world, Melatonin does not seem to build up tolerance over time (nor does there appear to lead to withdrawal or rebound insomnia when stopping use)
