Considerable levels of excitement and interest swirl around a recent discovery made by Spanish scientists who have discovered a way to control weight gain by consuming melatonin. This discovery by scientists from the University of Granada Institute for Neuroscience, the Hospital Carlos III, Madrid, and the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (USA), has deservedly placed melatonin in the news once more.
Melatonin in the news is no longer surprising, considering how a great number of studies are being conducted daily in order to validate the claims that are made in favor of, or against, melatonin use. For example, in Atlanta, Georgia, a natural health clinic, the Southern Environmental Medicine Center has noted that melatonin supplements can be relied on to treat recurrent insomnia. The center said that melatonin, as a supplement, should be given more attention because it can help address a number of complaints associated with lack of sleep.
