Melatonin 1mg Veg Caps 60 cap
Our body is indeed a wonderful machine so to speak, it’s one of the most well versed mechanisms in the universe. Millions of systems functioning at the same time to do one single task, aligning it selves perfectly for you to be able to make the simplest of tasks however, unlike machines though, we need rest and if we are not able to do so, we might not be as well versed as nature intended us to be. So it is important to know how we can possibly induce sleep if needed and do it in such a way that we still affect it in a natural manner.
Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the human body. Its main purpose is to aid in the regulation of our sleep cycles. It is what tells our body when it needs rest and when it needs to sleep and start recuperating for another tough day ahead. It is produced by the pineal gland in the brain and could be found at the centre of it. Now, let me ask you if you know why most of us would like to sleep more at night and not during the day? If you don’t then here is one of the reasons, melatonin. You see, this hormone is inhibited by light but induced by darkness. Meaning it is at higher levels during the night time and vice versa during the day. So since melatonin helps influence the normal function of our circadian rhythm which is what tells our body to sleep, it is important that we have appropriate levels of melatonin to aid induce sleep. It would also be helpful to take note that Melatonin production could easily be disrupted when there are routine changes in our daily lives. Say for example jet lag from moving from one time zone to another or maybe a sudden change in schedule in our work, both could easily affect melatonin levels in the body.
Female reproductive hormones and Melatonin
Studies have shown that normal levels of melatonin in the body can aid in the regulation of proper menstrual cycle. It is able to let the body know when it should release the female reproductive hormones and determine the beginning and end of a woman’s menstrual cycle. Further studies even had shown that proper levels of melatonin may be beneficial for woman undergoing menopause.
As an antioxidant and Immune system booster
Melatonin’s high antioxidant properties have linked it to various health benefits. It has been touted to be helpful against cancer prevention as it scavenges free radicals in the body and aid in its destruction. With its ability to also enhance the immune system it has been linked to the possibilities of slowing down the aging process by preventing cell oxidation.
As we age, melanin production in the body also tapers down so it would make sense that if we would want to have all these possible benefits, we should try supplementing.
