Melatonin is one of the most famous and important of all Hormones with some 30 million people having benefitted from taking it. Better known for its ability to immediately restore a healthy sleeping pattern, Melatonin offers more than just a good night’s sleep.

Produced by the pineal gland, a pea-sized structure at the centre of the brain, it is vitally important for the regulation of many hormones in the body and among its key roles, melatonin controls the body’s circadian rhythm – an internal 24-hour time keeping system that plays an essential role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up.

Darkness stimulates the release of melatonin and light suppresses its activity. Normal melatonin cycles are disrupted when we are exposed to excessive light in the evening or too little light during the daytime. In addition, as with many of the body’s key hormones, the body’s production of melatonin also declines as we age, levels peak in childhood around the age of 13 and diminish progressively with age, until production is almost non-existent by the age of 60.

This decline contributes to why many adults suffer from disrupted sleep patterns as they get older, and tend to find themselves going to bed earlier and waking up earlier in the morning than when they were younger.

Much has been written on its amazing effectiveness on general health and longevity. Melatonin’s most important benefit is to extend our lifespan by ensuring adequate restful sleep. Experiments have shown animals given melatonin in their drinking water have lived as much as 33% longer.  It also boosts immunity and is a powerful antioxidant.

Dr Russell J Reiter, a University of Texas cellular biologist and his colleagues, have shown small doses of melatonin can prevent rats from contracting cancer when exposed to certain cancer-causing agents. He is so sure of the general anti-ageing benefits of melatonin he takes 1mg a night. For sleep problems higher levels are usually required - take 3-9mg before retiring each night.

Melatonin, TV & Children
Reported in the New Scientist, scientists at the University of Florence in Italy found that when youngsters were deprived of their TV sets, computers and video games, their melatonin production increased by an average 30%. “Girls are reaching puberty much earlier than in the 1950s. One reason is due to their average increase in weight; but another is due to reduced levels of melatonin,” suggests Roberto Salti, who led the study.
