Last week I gave a talk about insomnia and insomnia remedies, and I asked people in the audience to share what they knew. “Melatonin!” a man shouted out. “It doesn’t work!” Others laughed in agreement.
For many years I thought the same thing. Melatonin supplements are unregulated by the US government. What little information we do get about melatonin—from labels and from the Internet—is often misleading, prompting some of us to buy it and try it when we may as well have bought a pair of lottery tickets instead.
But there is at least one type of insomnia sufferer who stands to gain a lot by taking melatonin supplements regularly at the appropriate time of day. This is the topic of my second book trailer. Watch this three-minute video clip and tell me what you think!
