Unlike prescription sleep aids that use chemicals to induce sleep, Melatonin works naturally. The pineal gland manufactures Melatonin in response to darkness, to help the body prepare for the process of sleep. In addition, Melatonin is also a potent antioxidant; a characteristic that often gets overlooked in light of other, more popular beneficial effects.

Research indicates that Melatonin may be associated with the regulation of sleep/wake cycles.  Melatonin is a potent antioxidant that defends against free radicals and helps to support glutathione activity in the neural tissue.

Melatonin is a potent free radical scavenger naturally produced in the pineal gland and present in high amounts in the gastrointestinal tract. It is involved in many of the body, brain and glandular biological functions including regulation of normal sleep/wake cycles, regulation of the immune system and maintenance of a healthy gastrointestinal lining. 

New research indicates that melatonin does much more than help some people sleep better. Exciting studies show that melatonin’s multifaceted effects may improve treatment outcomes in cancer patients and extend their lives. Additional applications of melatonin include guarding the nervous system against degenerative diseases—such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke—and preventing debilitating migraines. Melatonin is secreted from the pineal gland deep inside the brain. For more than a quarter-century, scientists have been intrigued by melatonin’s ability to coordinate the body’s physiological rhythms that help set the brain’s biological clock.

The principal factor affecting melatonin is light, which inhibits the secretion of this hormone. Darkness has the opposite effect from light, resulting in signaling to the pineal gland to increase melatonin secretion. The normal cycles of melatonin production are altered due to factors including aging, medications, and light exposure at night. While the long-term health effects of disrupted melatonin secretion are not yet fully known, some scientists have suggested that years of working nights could lead to adverse effects—even cancer. Melatonin supplements can safely and effectively restore balance to the body’s circadian rhythm of this important hormone, thus helping achieve a restful night’s sleep and keeping your biological clock ticking throughout a long life span.
