Purpose: The purpose of this research is to determine whether when you eat and taking melatonin (a hormone naturally produced by the body) can improve health and sleep. There is growing body of evidence that disrupted sleep and circadian rhythms have negative effects on health. The goal of this study is to determine the impact of when you eat and melatonin on improving sleep and health in older adults who are at risk of disorders such as diabetes, heart diseases or stroke.
Eligibility Criteria:Men and women age 55-75 who have no diagnosis of diabetes or sleep disorders may be eligible for this study.
