Is your body producing enough melatonin at night? Learn more about this important sleep hormone.
... according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, consistently getting less than seven hours of sleep per night can lead to difficulty staying focused, low moods, impaired thought processing, weight gain, and increased chance of getting sick. Fortunately, supplementing with melatonin can help get your sleep cycle back on track. Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally by your body's pineal gland. Under normal conditions, the hormone is regulated by exposure to light and dark. In a perfect world, we wake up, the sunlight reaches ...

Many women run "high estrogen" menstrual cycles (heavy blood flow, bad cramps), exposing themselves to similar risks. And even the lack of estrogen can cause metabolic problems. Several new melatonin animal studies have rather profound health implications for correcting the side effects of high and low estrogen on metabolism and cancer risk. In the first study rats were given an ovariectomy and 14 days later started on estrogen replacement. Half of them were also given melatonin. ...

... The ability to tolerate inflammation, in whatever form, is a key to healthy aging. A new study shows that melatonin1 can restore the ability of important cell components to withstand the effects of inflammatory stress. This is a distinct anti-aging effect on cells. Since natural melatonin production declines with age, and is lower in many people in the winter, it is an important nutrient to keep in mind as part of your natural anti-aging team. Endoplasmic reticulum is a functional sac-like network within your cells that is responsible for assembling proteins and ...

... . Many individuals who follow the Leptin Diet notice dramatically improved sleep, both in terms of being able to get to sleep and a better quality of sleep. One of leptins key functions is to synchronize the release of all hormones during sleep, including the release of melatonin that is the initial cue for your sleep department to start working and to keep working for a proper length of sleep. Smooth leptin function also orchestrates the release of growth hormone, thyroid hormone, and sex hormones during sleep, all of which have a profound ...

... Study Title: Mechanisms of Esophageal Protection, Gastroprotection and Ulcer Healing by Melatonin.Study Abstract Melatonin is a potent reactive oxygen metabolite scavenger and antioxidant that has been shown to influence many physiological functions of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract including secretion, motility, digestion and absorption of nutrients. The role of melatonin in gastroduodenal defense and ulcer healing has been the subject of recent investigations. Melatonin produced in the GI mucosa plays an important role in protection against noxious agents thus contributing to the maintenance of GI integrity and to esophageal protection ...

Study Title: Protective effects of an interaction between vagus nerve and melatonin on gastric ischemia/reperfusi Study Abstract OBJECTIVES: Vagal pathways in gastrointestinal tract are the most important pathways that regulate ischemia/reperfusion (I /R). Gastrointestinal tract is one of the important sources of melatonin production. The aim of this study was to investigate probable protective effect of the interaction between vagus nerve and melatonin after I/R. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was performed in male rats that were divided into six groups. Cervical vagus ...
Melatonin inhibits cell proliferation and induces caspase activation and apoptosis in human malignant lymphoid cell lines.
... Study Title: Melatonin inhibits cell proliferation and induces activation in human malignant lymphoid cell lines.Study Abstract Melatonin exerts strong anti-tumour activity via several mechanisms, including anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects in addition to its potent antioxidant activity. Several studies have investigated the effects of melatonin on haematological malignancies. However, the previous studies investigating lymphoid malignancies have been largely restricted to a single type of malignancy, Burkitt's lymphoma (BL). Thus, we examined the actions of melatonin on the growth and apoptosis in a small panel of cell lines representing ...

... October 23, 2007| Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland of the brain, helping to synchronize the timing of body functions and is especially important for restful sleep. Melatonin is also a powerful antioxidant. It is one of the best remedies for poor mood that is associated with shorter and colder days. Melatonin levels begin to decline at age 30 and the decline in melatonin is linked by many studies to the increase in age-related deterioration. A wide array of new information points ...

Low melatonin levels increase the risk factor for invasive breast cancer in postmenopausal women.
... October 24, 2012| Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist Researchers demonstrated that low melatonin levels1 are a risk factor for invasive breast cancer in postmenopausal women. They had already demonstrated the same finding in premenopausal women. Melatonin is the hormone made in your pineal gland that not only helps you sleep but also helps synchronize timing in your body, including the rhythmic function of immune cells. This data indicates that any woman who is 50 or older should ensure her melatonin status is optimal. Taking melatonin and noticing that ...
Neurons from senescence-accelerated SAMP8 mice are protected against frailty by the sirtuin 1 promoting agents melatonin and resveratrol.
... Study Title: Resveratrol and Melatonin Preserve Mitochondrial Function in Neurons Via Sirt1 Activation Study Abstract The senescence-accelerated prone 8 (SAMP8) mouse strain shows early cognitive loss that mimics the deterioration of learning and memory in the elderly and is widely used as an animal model of aging. SAMP8 mouse brain suffers oxidative stress, as well as tau- and amyloid-related pathology. Mitochondrial dysfunction and the subsequent increase in cellular oxidative stress are central to the aging processes of the organism. Here, we examined the mitochondrial status of neocortical neurons cultured from ...

... -- know your limits. Eating after dinner or eating a large meal within three hours of bed invariably disrupts the quality of sleep. Minimally this causes you to wake up feeling not well rested. Eating late disturbs leptin, in turn blunting growth hormone release, melatonin release, and thyroid hormone release during sleep. It is like pushing the conductor of the orchestra off the stage and listening to the resulting chaos. High fat or large meals prior to bed also force calories into the lymphatic system, in turn getting in the ...
