Powerful Antioxidant Protection and Sleep Aid
Melatonin, a hormone manufactured by the pineal gland, is best-known as an aid for insomnia. Melatonin helps regulate the sleep/wake cycle and sets the Circadian rhythms (24 hour cycle) of the body. Because it “sets” the rhythm of release of all other hormones, melatonin is an important hormone regulator.
Melatonin is also a powerful antioxidant that crosses the blood/brain barrier and helps protect the central nervous system against injury, disease, and aging. Melatonin is used in treating:
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
- stroke-induced neurological damage
- aluminum toxicity
- cancer prevention and treatment
- anti-aging and longevity protocols
- cluster headaches
- high blood pressure
- Parkinson’s disease
- immune enhancement
- Alzheimer’s disease.
Melatonin levels decrease with age, and this reduction in melatonin levels results in many age-related concerns and complaints: sleep difficulties, an increased susceptibility to stress-related diseases, reduced immunity, and increased susceptibility to damage and disease caused by free radicals.
Melatonin increases production of immune cells and is often used in cancer medicine for its immune enhancing antioxidant effects. (Do NOT use in leukemia and lymphoma until more is known).
Many researchers consider melatonin to be one of the most powerful anti-aging substances available.
