The Possible Ties Between COVID-19 and Sleep

Melatonin is best known as the sleep hormone, and its most familiar role is the regulation of our circadian rhythms. Each night, as darkness falls, it shoots out of our brain’s pineal glands and into our blood, inducing sleep. However, some research suggests that it may also help in immune system calibration. This means it can keep the immune system’s defenses from overreacting which is often a reason why a mild case of something like COVID-19 becomes a much more serious issue.

According to an article in The Atlantic, eight clinical trials are currently ongoing, around the world, to see what melatonin is capable of. Few other treatments are receiving so much research attention. If melatonin proves to help people, it would be the cheapest and most readily accessible medicine to counter COVID-19. Unlike experimental drugs such as remdesivir and antibody cocktails, melatonin is widely available in the United States as an over-the-counter dietary supplement. People could start taking it immediately.

Deep sleep is essential to the production of melatonin. If you’re tossing and turning, you’re not getting the best sleep. Visit Brickell Mattress and let’s talk about upgrading and improving your sleep in 2021.
