Over 3 million people in the US alone take melatonin sleep aids.
Is there a point on your ear that can help stimulate melatonin naturally? You bet!
Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally in your body in your brain by your pineal gland.
Melatonin regulates your day night cycle, it regulates your biological clock and helps conditions such as insomnia and jetlag.
As it gets darker, your optic nerve signals your pineal gland so your body naturally produces more melatonin, as your body gets prepared for sleep.
The corresponding auricular point for your pineal gland is located on the lower part of your tragus.
So if your circadian rhythm is out of tune from flying or working night hours, consider placing ear seeds on the pineal gland point.
