Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland, a master gland located in the center of your brain. It is secreted mostly at night during darkened hours; peaking around 2 to 3 a.m.
Melatonin is present in virtually every cell of the body, supporting immune system integrity and normal circadian rhythms. Melatonin peaks in ones earlier years, declines drastically by middle age (age 35 to 45) and is negligible in older people (over age 60).*
Immune System Boost
Recent observations have shown that melatonin helps modulate estrogen receptor expression and may have a positive effect in promoting healthy breast, prostate, lung and brain cell growth.
A Powerful Antioxidant
Melatonin is a highly effective free radical scavenger. Studies show that using melatonin during times of increased free radical production (such as stress, physical exertion, chronic health concerns, etc.) can have a strong protective effect. Melatonin is readily absorbed and crosses the blood-brain barrier and the placenta, to enter the cells to prevent oxidative damage. The reduction of melatonin levels with age may be a factor in increased oxidative damage in elderly people.
The use of melatonin to promote restful sleep is well documented. Studies of low dose, oral melatonin in healthy adult volunteers showed that time to sleep onset, stage-2 sleep, and REM sleep was decreased without affecting the percentage of time in REM sleep or alertness after waking. In addition, evidence also indicates improved sleep benefits for children as well.
