Melatonin is a substance secreted by the pineal gland. Its secretion is abundant in young people. Its peak rate is reached at puberty and goes down to half by mid-fifties, while the gland tends to atrophy and calcify, which could partly explain that older people often have poor sleep. Melatonin also intervenes in the balance of behavior and certain mental functions.
