Hello
Can I answer for her?
Melatonin is the natural hormone that regulates the body's sleep cycles. It has to be dark in order for melatonin to be secreted from the pineal gland. By the time you're in your 40s the pineal is barely producing any so you supplement to ensure a good night's sleep.

Studies show it is also helpful for weight loss and balancing cholesterol levels - both good and bad.

But if you want to sleep - take it one hour before bed and retreat to a dark room. It helps.
