... . Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist One of the things that happens to your eyes as you age is that the lens of your eyes yellows, in turn reducing the ability of your retina to absorb blue light. Blue light is needed to activate the production of melatonin that helps you sleep. A new study shows this is a common problem associated with poor sleep quality as individuals age. "The strong link between lens yellowing and age could help explain why sleep disorders become more frequent with increasing age," said Line Kessel ...

... three hours before bed. One of leptin's main rhythms follows a 24-hour pattern. Leptin levels are highest in the evening hours. This is because leptin, like the conductor in the orchestra, sets the timing for nighttime repair. It coordinates the timing and release of melatonin, thyroid hormone, growth hormone, sex hormones, and immune system function to carry out rejuvenating sleep. It does this while burning fat at the maximum rate compared to any other time of the day. And it does this only if you will allow it ...

... Study Title: Critical time delay of the pineal melatonin rhythm in humans due to weak electromagnetic exposure.Study Abstract Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can increase free radicals, activate the stress response and alter enzyme reactions. Intracellular signalling is mediated by free radicals and enzyme kinetics is affected by radical pair recombination rates. The magnetic field component of an external EMF can delay the "recombination rate" of free radical pairs. Magnetic fields thus increase radical life-times in biological systems. Although measured in nanoseconds, this extra time increases the potential ...

... Study Title: Differential role of melatonin in restoration of age-induced alterations in daily rhythms Study Abstract Aging is associated with changes in several basic parameters of circadian rhythms in mammals leading to circadian dysfunction. The hypothalamic Suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) regulates neuronal, endocrine and behavioral rhythms through the expression of various clock genes and release of melatonin from pineal gland. In the present study, we investigated the effect of aging on daily rhythms of various clock genes such as rPer1, rPer2, rCry1, rCry2 and rBmal1 in the SCN of male ...

... Study Title: Decreased melatonin secretion is associated with increased intestinal permeability and marker of end Study Abstract Chronic heavy alcohol use is known to cause gut leakiness and alcoholic liver disease (ALD), but only 30% of heavy drinkers develop increased intestinal permeability and ALD. The hypothesis of this study was that disruption of circadian rhythms is a potential risk factor in actively drinking alcoholics for gut leakiness and endotoxemia. We studied 20 subjects with alcohol use disorder (AD) and 17 healthy controls (HC, 6 day workers, 11 ...
