Were you looking for information about Melatonin? Meltonian is a common misspelling of melatonin.
Melatonin is a hormone that is produced naturally in the human body. Although it is a "natural" substance, most melatonin supplements on the market today are synthetic versions of the hormone. These supplements are claimed to have several health benefits, such as treating sleep disorders, treating cancer, preventing or treating Alzheimer's disease, and preventing migraine headaches. While melatonin may be effective for several of these uses, more research is needed to determine how to safely and effectively use the supplement.
