background
Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxy-tryptamine) which is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan is one of the major hormones of the pineal gland.1 There is a circadian rhythm associated with Melatonin and the highest levels in plasma are observed during nighttime.2 Regulation of the melatonin secretion is influenced by light via a pathway that starts in the retina of the eye. The production of melatonin is stopped abruptly upon exposure to light.
