Melatonin (the sleep hormone) is produced by our brains which makes us fall asleep and stay asleep.
Darkness causes the body to produce melatonin, which causes sleepiness, signalling to the body to that it is time to sleep.
Exposure to blue light at night suppresses the release of melatonin as it signals your brain that it is still daylight, trying to keep you awake and alert.
Reduction in melatonin makes it hard to fall asleep and/or stay asleep, drastically lowers sleep quality, and causes serious sleep disruption.
Quality sleep is essential for maintaining a healthy body and mind.
