In recent years, young people have become accustomed to going to bed late, which in the long run changes the sleep structure, increases the number of insomnia, and promotes the emergence of "late sleep procrastination" among young people. About 52% of people stay up late passively. The main factors are emotional distress, work pressure and life pressure. With the gradual aggravation of sleep problems among young people, the demand for melatonin market continues to grow, and the market scale increases accordingly. It is estimated that the market scale of melatonin will reach 840 million yuan in 2025.
Young people become the main consumer group
In recent years, more and more people suffer from insomnia, and the huge group of sleep disorders has stimulated the consumption of sleep-aid products: eye masks, earplugs, pillows, sleep-aid spray, aromatherapy lamps and other products are highly sought after, and melatonin health food has also attracted attention.
More than 300 million people in China have sleep disorders, according to the Chinese Sleep Research Society. Among the late sleepers in China, 48% stay up late on their own initiative, represented by the post-80s and post-90s generation. In the Internet age, it is common for young people to go to bed late. In the long run, changing the sleep structure will increase the number of insomnia. About 52% of people stay up late passively. The main factors are emotional distress, work pressure, life pressure, etc., and they are the main consumers of melatonin. Data showed that users of dietary supplements such as melatonin increased fourfold year-on-year in 2020, with 62 percent of consumers born in the 1990s buying online celebrities' sleep products such as melatonin fudge, steam eye masks and sleep pillows. Thus, sleep problems tend to be younger.
The well-known function of melatonin is mainly to improve sleep quality (the dosage of 0.1 to 0.3mg), can shorten the time of waking up and falling asleep before sleep, improve sleep quality, the number of waking up during sleep is significantly reduced, the light sleep stage is short, the deep sleep stage is prolonged, and the threshold of waking up in the next morning is decreased. Has the strong adjustment jet lag function.
Melatonin is secreted in a circadian rhythm. After nightfall, the light stimulation is weakened, the pineal body's melatonin synthesis enzyme activity is enhanced, and the secretion level of melatonin in the body is correspondingly increased, reaching the peak at 2~3 o 'clock in the morning. The level of melatonin at night directly affects the quality of sleep. As the growth of the age, the pineal gland atrophy until calcification, caused the rhythm weakened or disappeared, the biological clock after age 35, in particular, its secretion of melatonin in the body decreases obviously, reduced by 10-15% for every 10 years on average, result in a sleep disorder, and a series of dysfunction, and reduced levels of melatonin, the sleep reduction is one of the important symbol of human brain aging. Therefore, in vitro supplementation of melatonin can maintain the level of melatonin in the body at a young state, adjust and restore circadian rhythm, not only deepen sleep and improve sleep quality, but more importantly, improve the function of the whole body, improve the quality of life, and delay the aging process.
Melatonin is a hormone that induces natural sleep. It overcomes sleep disorders and improves sleep quality by regulating human natural sleep. The biggest difference between it and other sleeping pills is that melatonin is non-addictive and has no obvious side effects. Take 1 to 2 tablets (about 1.5 to 3mg of melatonin) before going to bed at night, which can induce drowsiness in 20 to 30 minutes. However, after dawn in the morning, melatonin automatically loses its efficacy, and you will not feel tired and sleepy after getting up.
