Melatonin occurs naturally in the body with production beginning around the age of three months. As with many other chemicals, compounds and hormones produced in the body, production begins to decrease as one gets further on in years. Melatonin is no exception with production reaching its peak between the ages of eighteen and twenty until it begins its inevitable decline.
Until fairly recently, this essential hormone was believed to be solely a product of the pineal gland, and namely responnsible for upholding circadian rhythms and regulating sleep patterns. Today researchers and scientists are revealing much more about Melatonin, making the public privy to its whole body health benefits. For instance, Melatonin is a known antioxidant and displays powerful anti-inflammatory properties comparable to those of Ibuprofen, and may help prevent or reduce the occurrence of cluster headaches while aiding in inflammatory response.
New studies also suggest that Melatonin acts as a safeguard for the brain, crossing the blood-brain barrier and helping it to recover after injury such as trauma and stroke, which are associated with high amounts of oxidative stress. Melatonin may be a useful supplement to aid in the prevention of of neurodegenerative diseases such as Dementia and Alzheimer's.
