Melatonin is a very powerful anti-oxidant, even more so than vitamin C and E. Antioxidants prevent us from damage in our tissues caused by free radicals, which contribute to aging in the form of heart disease, cancer, cataracts and immune impairment. It has a powerful inhibitory effect on certain cancers such as those of the prostate, breast and metastatic melanomas. It does this by increasing natural killer cells, the body’s primary defense against cancer,as well as interleukin-2, a natural anti-cancer molecule.Its strong anti-oxidant capabilities have a neuro-protective effect on brain tissue and helps prevent Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. At age 60, our melatonin levels have decreased by 50%, and we start getting signs of aging. Studies using melatonin supplementation with animals have shown to increase their life span by 25%.
Hormone that controls the circadian rhythm (sleep), menstrual cycles, aging process, strengthens the immune system.
