Melatonin sleep gummies help you relax your mind and body after a long day. Our team has decided to do a quick post on a question that we have been asked countless times... "should I take melatonin with food".
Should melatonin be taken with food?
Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced in the pineal gland in the brain. Its main purpose is to regulate your sleep cycles and begins ramping up as the evening sets in.
Melatonin is most commonly taken to assist with difficulties sleeping and is generally available without a prescription. Melatonin comes in many forms, including fruit flavored CBD sleep gummies with melatonin, or melatonin-infused CBN gummies.
Melatonin is best absorbed by the body when taken on an empty stomach. This is good news since melatonin should be taken 30 minutes to an hour before bed and eating food before bed can disrupt your sleep pattern and cause an array of health issues.
What have you learned today?
You have learned that for best results, melatonin should be taken 30 minutes to and hour before bed and on an empty stomach. However, not all edibles should be taken on an empty stomach. For instance, the effects of THC gummies—such as Delta 9 edibles and gummies with Delta 8 THC—hit faster when they're taken on an empty stomach. Thus, if you're taking gummies infused with Delta 9 or other forms of THC, it's best to eat beforehand.
