Melatonin may help you sleep and lose weight

I've written about melatonin for insomnia a number of times here on the Insomnia Land blog.

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of melatonin supplements. They're often misused and they come with a number of side-effects.

That being said, an increasing number of studies are finding melatonin to be beneficial for a number of conditions.

One study found that melatonin may protect against Alzheimer's disease (when combined with exercise) and now a study has found that melatonin may help the body burn fat.

This latest study found that rats treated with melatonin in their drinking water for six weeks were burning more fat compared to the control groups. Exercise was found to be more effective in rats consuming the melatonin, too.

Who knows, maybe we'll see people taking melatonin supplements in the future to help them lose weight rather than gain sleep.
