The Many Benefits of Melatonin

You may have heard of melatonin as a natural sleep aid, but did you know that this potent hormone offers a wide range of health benefits? 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.* Let's take a closer look at some of the ways melatonin can improve your health.

Immune System Support*

Melatonin has been shown to support immune system function by modulating cytokine production.* Cytokines are signaling molecules that promote communication between cells and play an important role in the body's immune response. Modulation of cytokine production helps to ensure that the body mounts an appropriate immune response when needed, without overreacting to innocuous stimuli.* This action is thought to be one of the mechanisms by which melatonin supports healthy seasonal allergies.*

Gastrointestinal Health*

The gastrointestinal tract is lined with cells that produce melatonin.* This hormone helps to maintain the integrity of the gastrointestinal mucosal barrier, which is the first line of defense against pathogenic bacteria, toxins and other damaging agents. A healthy gastrointestinal mucosal barrier is important for preventing these agents from entering the bloodstream and causing illness.*

In addition to its role in maintaining gut health, melatonin also has powerful antioxidant activity in the gut.* This activity helps to protect cells from damage caused by inflammation and oxidative stress.*

As you can see, melatonin offers a wide range of health benefits. If you're looking for a natural way to support your immune system, cognitive function or gastrointestinal health, consider adding a melatonin supplement to your daily routine.
