Melatonin 3mg - 60 tablets

What is Melatonin and How does it work?


Melatonin is a hormone in your body that is produced by the pineal gland located in the center of the brain but outside the blood-brain barrier. The melatonin signal forms part of the system that regulates the sleep-awake cycle by chemically causing drowsiness and lowering the body temperature. Melatonin has been studied for the treatment of cancer, immune disorders, cardiovascular diseases, depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), circadian rhythm sleep disorders and sexual dysfunction. It may ameliorate circadian misalignment and SAD. Basic research indicates that melatonin may play a significant role in modulating the effects of drugs of abuse such as cocaine.


The influence of melatonin supplements on the treatment of different cancers is also under investigation. Aberrant levels of melatonin have been seen in people suffering from prostate cancer, for instance, and links have been seen between breast cancer and disruptions in melatonin production.  Melatonin supplements have been provided to cancer patients, along with lower than normal dosages of typical chemotherapy with some success. Melatonin may also prevent growth of cancer because of its properties as an antioxidant. Both this and its effect on the balance of the endocrine system have driven the concept that melatonin supplements may have a good role in preventing or treating a range of diseases, including Alzheimerï¾’s disease, diabetes, Parkinsonï¾’s disease and high blood pressure.


The truth that melatonin generation falls acutely as people get older has driven research into its links with aging. It has been suggested that the pineal gland is not simply a circadian clock but also an aging clock, arranging the bodyï¾’s natural span of life by decreasing melatonin generation. One manner in which this may perform is that the melatonin deficiency that comes with elder people has a crucial influence on the thymus gland, which masters the working of the bodyï¾’s defenses, the immune system. With age the immune system functions less efficiently, exposing the body open to diseases and virus such as heart disease and cancer, the incidence of which elevates as the body becomes older. Some scientists argue that this reduction in immune functioning can be interchanged by improving melatonin levels.
