Melatonin is a hormone secreted by your pineal gland (located in the epithalamus of the brain). Its released once the retinas detected that its night time. Melatonin also does a variety of benefical things too.
GABA is one of the bodies several inhibitory neurotransmitters. To put it in simplest terms, it relaxes you. However, too much is dangerous.....
I suggest taking melatonin about 30min. before you go to sleep.
