Melatonin 60 Capsules
A hormone secreted by the pineal gland, melatonin helps regulate the circadian rhythm, the "internal clock" that controls the body's sleep/wake cycle. It also acts as an antioxidant, combating the free-radical damage associated with aging.
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. It has the ability to coordinate the body’s physiological rhythms that help set the brain’s biological clock. Melatonin is a powerful and versatile antioxidant produced within the body. Melatonin protects both lipids and proteins against damage, and can scavenge some of the most dangerous free radicals in the body—including hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide. Unlike other antioxidants, melatonin easily diffuses into all cells, and even crosses the blood-brain barrier to protect the delicate brain. Melatonin may likewise play an important role in assisting patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is associated with disrupted melatonin secretion in the brain, and supplemental melatonin may help improve sleep efficiency in affected adults. Melatonin may help manage one of the leading risk factors for stroke—elevated blood pressure. One of melatonin’s most important applications is in fighting a wide array of cancers, including breast and liver cancers, non-small-cell lung cancer, and brain metastases from solid tumors. http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2007/6/nu_melatonin/Page-01
