Chewable melatonin: How it aids your weight loss?

December 27. 2021

As we are now deep in the holiday season, an easy time to put on some extra weight, you may be familiar with the standard tips on how to avoid putting on that extra weight – drink plenty of water, eat a healthy meal before hitting the holiday buffet, be careful of the indulgences you take. One piece of advice you can add to this list is to get enough sleep.

If you’re not sleeping well or haven’t had enough sleep, you’re more exposed to stress and impulsive decisions. Those decisions often involve food. When you’re tired, you want something to give you an instant energy boost, and you don’t have the will and patience to prepare a nutritious and healthy meal. So you end up eating whatever is the fastest. And to top it off, when you’re tired, you don’t have the energy to work out. As you can see, nothing good comes out with a lack of sleep.

The hormone in charge of getting your body to rest is known as melatonin. Other than that, research shows that melatonin helps regulate insulin sensitivity, reduces blood pressure and body temperature, and acts anti-inflammatory. Research also shows that this hormone can improve your metabolism and aid your weight loss.

Although melatonin is a hormone produced by our bodies, it is often taken as a supplement. The most common form of supplementation is chewable melatonin. The first thing that pops up on your mind when you see the word supplement is probably not related to losing weight. But stay tuned; we will explain how these two are connected.

And if you’re looking for a way to maintain your weight after completing a weight loss phase of a strict diet, we will get into that as well!

Benefits of chewable melatonin

Better sleeping schedule

Having a nighttime routine is very important because it helps you have a sleeping schedule. Once you have a schedule, you can fall asleep quickly, get enough rest and have a deeper sleep. Adding melatonin supplements into your nighttime routine can only boost the process and make it easier to stick to the schedule.

Easier to get to sleep

Your brain needs information that it’s time to stop producing hormones that keep you awake and start producing the hormone that helps you sleep. That hormone is called melatonin. Once you take your chewable melatonin, the brain responds to the sudden amount by starting the production process. This way, you have higher melatonin levels in a short time, so it takes less time and effort to fall asleep. 

Deeper sleep

As mentioned above, by having a sleeping schedule, a nighttime routine, and higher melatonin levels, you ensure a better and deeper sleep.

Better handling of daily stress

Higher melatonin levels mean sleeping better and feeling well-rested. When you’re well-rested, you’re less sensitive to daily stressors that are an inevitable part of life nowadays.

Less anxiety when falling asleep

You’re in your bed, feeling tired, but you keep turning and tossing and can’t fall asleep. How many times did this happen to you? It’s because you have something on your mind that happened that day that makes you feel anxious. Chewable melatonin gummies can help by being a voice of sense.

Another great benefit that is connected to melatonin refers to the after-diet phase. Probably the most popular diet is the hCG diet, which has three phases, so this refers to the third one. If you are more interested in getting to know all three phases, you can find them in our blog and various recipes that can help you with the diet itself. But let’s get back to the topic. After you’ve completed the first two phases, you struggle with how to maintain weight loss after the hCG diet.

You have to be self-disciplined, plan your meals, calculate your intakes, gradually increase daily calories, etc. You need a lot of concentration and patience for all of that. It’s all easier if you’re not feeling tired and you’ve had a good night’s sleep. And what helps with that – Melatonin.

Melatonin impact on weight loss

Melatonin has two ways to affect your weight:

  • By turning fat into energy rather than storing it
  • By improving the thermogenic capacity of the mitochondria that upgrades the calorie-burning mechanism

As you can see, melatonin doesn’t directly aid in losing weight, similar to some supplements we mentioned in our blogs (peptides for weight loss and chromium picolinate for weight loss). Still, when you add a good diet and physical activity to the two influences it makes to your body, it can only have positive outcomes.

Final thoughts

It is crucial to be aware of the quality of the chewable melatonin you take. If they are low-quality, you won’t get the benefits you were hoping for. They may be cheaper than the high-quality ones, but at the same time, you’ve wasted your money because they didn’t make any results.
