Melatonin- Not Just for Sleep
Did you know that melatonin is a potent antioxidant and hormone that can assist in the prevention of Alzheimer's through it's regulatory and neuroprotective effect on the brain? Melatonin is secreted from the pineal gland and research suggests that those with neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease may have decreased levels of melatonin. Unfortunately the wavelengths from our computer, WiFi and cellphone screens signal our pituitary that it is light out, even at night, which results in decreased levels of melatonin. Melatonin is one of our cancer protective hormones and also helps to increase libido and support the immune system. We recommend Premier Research Lab's melatonin for supplementation because it is not synthetic. It is live-sourced, easily absorbed and utilized by your cells and won't leave you feeling groggy in the morning. It is also a much less expensive option than CBD for those that are looking to reduce anxiety during the day.
