Melatonin-3

DESCRIPTION
Melatonin capsules, as provided by Blood DetectiveTM Nutritionals, contain 3 mg of highest purity melatonin produced under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards.

FUNCTION
Melatonin is a versitile molecule produced by the pineal gland, but tiny amounts are also produced by the retina, gastrointestinal tract, thymus, bone marrow, lymphocytes, etc. Besides potential use in sleep, melatonin is an antioxidant, that helps regulate the immune system, has cancer fi ghting properties, reproductive fuctions, helps central mood and is an anti-infective agent; particularly for bacterial and viral infections. It has also been used successfully in treating premature infants suffering from sever respiratory distress syndrome and septic shock. Its potential role in cancer prevention and treatment has been vigerous.
Melatonin is a natural hormone nutrient that is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the pineal gland in the back of the brain. Melatonin also occurs in small amounts in a variety of foods. In the body, melatonin appears to regulate sleep/wake cycles, support normal immune function, and protect cells from free radical damage.
Most of the research on melatonin has focused on its role in maintaining normal sleep/wake rhythms. The perception of daylight in the eyes is a signal for the pineal gland to inhibit melatonin synthesis and release. At night or in the dark, the body’s melatonin production rises. The rise in plasma melatonin is thought to be
responsible for bringing on sleep.
Nocturnal melatonin production is highest in children and begins to decline from adolescence on until it is virtually absent in the elderly. Melatonin supports normal immune function by helping maintain the activity of circulating natural killer cells. It also has been found to function as an antagonist for stress-induced immunosuppression.
Melatonin is considered a potent antioxidant that enters all body cells to help prevent free radical damage. In the brain, melatonin is perhaps the most important physiological antioxidant. Due to its lipid and water-soluble properties, it can freely cross the blood-brain barrier. In vitro studies show that melatonin is more effective than glutathione in scavenging toxic hydroxyl radicals, and also more efficient than vitamin E in neutralizing peroxyl radicals which can induce DNA damage.

Furthermore, melatonin stimulates the main antioxidant enzyme of the brain, glutathione peroxidase.

Melatonin capsules may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to support the body’s pineal gland function.
