Melatonin as a sleeping aid: what you need to know

Melatonin as a sleeping aid: what you need to know

January 16, 2020

Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced in the body that helps our circadian rhythm, or the sleep-wake cycle. Also known as the “hormone of darkness”, there are certain parts of the day when it’s high (in the evening) and low (in the morning) - rising levels make us feel sleepy and lower ones keep us alert.

If you’re one to toss and turn at night, your body might be needing more melatonin. While you can get melatonin from certain foods and controlling the amount of light in the room, melatonin supplements are easy to come by too. Melatonin is relatively safe so it’s available over-the-counter in many pharmacies, health and wellbeing shops, and online stores in the US.

January 06, 2020

Ever heard of the Limitless movie (or the Netflix show for that matter)? It’s where Bradley Cooper’s character, Edward Morra, found a nootropic drug - NZT-48 - which turned him from a struggling writer into a brain super power (like 4-digit IQ and a memory that remembers practically EVERYTHING).

Dehydration: causes, signs and symptoms

December 18, 2019 1 Comment

Dehydration is probably one of the most overlooked conditions that doesn’t get a lot of medical attention.  After all, it’s normal to get thirsty, right?

But it’s more than just getting thirsty.

In fact, thirst isn’t always the best way to tell whether you’re dehydrated or not. Some people suffering from it don’t realize they are, until symptoms manifest. Hence, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated at all times, but more so during hot weather or when you’re sick.

According to WebMD: [1]

Dehydration happens when your body doesn't have as much water as it needs. Without enough, your body can't function properly. You can have mild, moderate, or severe dehydration depending on how much fluid is missing from your body.

10:00 PM. It’s bedtime. After a warm bath, you retreat to your favorite warm linen that smells as fresh as summertime. You lay down your comfortable bed and tuck yourself under the sheets. You turn off your bedside lamp before closing your eyes, ready to surrender yourself to REM.

Thoughts start to run wild. Ideas jump in. You remember something you forgot to do this morning. You recall some gossip your colleague told you. You feel a strong urge to check Instagram and see if it’s true. It’s like your mind is suddenly running a marathon, but your body is too tired from the marathon of meetings it has just gone through.

You try to get rid of thoughts. Hard. Eyes still shut, except that you also feel your eyes blinking, albeit lids closed.

You give up and open your eyes. What’s the time?

10:02 PM.

And in the quiet of your dark, comfortable room, you hear yourself say…

“Not again.”
