There are a few things you need to understand before using a melatonin supplement? Number one, are you taking it under the right condition? So, is your bed time feeling later than it should be? Are you experiencing jet lag or what we call social jet lag where you're staying late, up late on the weekends.

The next thing you want to understand is are you taking any medication that can potentially interact with melatonin, how do you know that? Absolutely talk with your doctor before you start to take this supplement. The third thing you want to know is could you actually have low blood pressure? There have been studies to show that melatonin in some cases can actually lower somebody's blood pressure.

So please be careful.
