All About Melatonin

Melatonin is a potent antioxidant anti-inflammatory, immune modulator and master repair hormone. It has shown to kill cancer cells. It is also well known that melatonin controls numerous mechanisms responsible for helping the body to run smoothly.

To some degree, melatonin is the winding mechanism for your biological clock. As it gets dark, and levels of this hormone increase, you start to feel drowsy and ready for sleep. People have found lots of ways to fight this instinct- caffeinated beverages, social engagements, and drug use. But you risk major health issues when you suppress this natural process.

The misconceptions of sleep are I don't need much sleep. I am just wired that way. Sleeping in the day time is every bit as valuable as sleeping at night. If I miss sleep during the week, I can always catch up on the weekends. Those are the 3 main miss conceptions of sleep.

We are built to sleep at night around the same time every night. A lack of sleep or poor quality of sleep can hinder critical repair processes and generate inflammation, a major driver of cancer and other illnesses. Even sleeping during the day doesn't counteract this effect, as light inhibits melatonin production.

Melatonin is regarded for its ability to scavenge free radicals and reduce oxidative stress. Since melatonin is both water and fat soluble, it moves easily through cell membranes, allowing it to clean up free radicals where they tend to do the most damage. Melatonin has shown to protect mitochondria and can even help protect your DNA. Melatonin has shown to reduce symptoms associated with cancer, as well as side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
