Melatonin releases from the pineal gland, reaching its peak at night to help maintain healthy cell division in tissues throughout the
body. Secretion of melatonin declines significantly with age, as the pineal gland becomes calcified.68,69 Jet lag, shift work, and
poor vision can disrupt melatonin cycles.
Melatonin keeps our circadian cycle in tune as it communicates with the body’s cells.70,71 Not only does this hormone work to
maintain cell health, it appears to regulate a system of self-repair and regeneration.72,73 As this hardworking hormone diminishes
with age, our biological functions are impaired.74,75 In addition to its hormone actions, melatonin also has strong antioxidant
properties. Melatonin directly scavenges both hydroxyl and peroxyl free radicals, and it does so more effectively than most other
antioxidants. It also greatly potentiates the efficiency of other endogenous and exogenous antioxidants.76 Melatonin is especially
important for protecting cellular DNA against peroxynitrite damage by inhibiting peroxynitrite free radical reactions.77 Many people
use melatonin to help improve sleep. Some research has found that melatonin increases the speed of falling asleep and adds to
the quality of sleep in about 60% of people who use it.
