Lack of sleep is an issue in adults and as we get older it becomes harder to get a good night’s rest. However, many children suffer from insomnia and a poor night sleep. As adults have learned the benefits of natural sleep aids, such as melatonin, the question arises “is it safe to give melatonin to my children?”. As your child’s poor sleep interferes with their school and daily activity this no longer becomes a theoretical question but a true need for parents that are getting no rest themselves as they deal with their child’s insomnia.
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a synthetic form of a natural hormone that our brains naturally produce to help us fall asleep. Melatonin release is stimulated by onset of darkness. If you feel that you are unable to get the rest you need then Melatonin may be the right supplement for you. Frunutta Melatonin is easily dissolved under the tongue without the need for water or swallowing. * But is it beneficial or safe for your child? A recent article from Boston Children’s Hospital does touch on this subject and seems to recommend overall use of melatonin to be safe in children over 4 years of age in for short duration in doses along 3 to 5mg. However, we at Frunutta and the authors in the article recommend always to follow with your pediatrician to get the best advice before starting your child on any vitamins or supplements. *
