Late-night eating and melatonin may impair insulin response

The body’s circadian rhythms – the 24-hour cycles of biological, hormonal, and behavioral patterns – are optimized to promote our survival. These rhythms modulate a wide array of physiological processes, including the body’s production of hormones that regulate sleep, hunger, and metabolism, ultimately influencing body weight, performance, and susceptibility to disease. Roughly 10 to 40 percent of gene expression in mammals is under circadian control including genes in the brain, liver, and muscle. As such, circadian rhythmicity may have profound implications for human healthspan.
