This is a naturally occurring hormone produced form the pineal gland, which governs the body's clock. It helps us fall asleep, as it is involved in serotonin production, which helps us reach slumber-state.
It is marketed as a supplement to help sleep, so the benefit to bodybuilders would be a good night's sleep, to train hard, and grow well. Used as a supplement for this purpose it does work, but users claim it has a nasty side effect in that it gives vivid, often nasty dreams or nightmares. Individuals have reported to be freaked out, so this negative effect has made melatonin supplements unpopular and I wouldn't recommend using them.
