God nattesøvn er vigtigt for hele din kropslige funktion. Alt fra Helbred mentalt som fysisk og generelt velvære er afhængig af din nattesøvn og kvaliteten heraf. Hvis du har problemer med at falde i søvn, kan melatonin være et uvurderligt kosttilskud i sammenhæng med de resultater du prøver at opnå. Kroppen producere melatonin naturligt men selve mængden falder med alderen (se referencer) - Dette kan forstyre din nattesøvn eller generelle dagsrytme. Melatonin er også et kraftfuldt antioxidant som promovere DNA beskyttelse, immunforsvar og kognitiv funktion.
Melatonin is a hormone which is naturally produced in the body. It is derived from tryptophan and is primarily known to offer support for the circadian rhythm, also known as your “body clock” [1,2].
Although it is mostly known for its sleep-promoting qualities, research now shows that it also has many other health benefits. These include support for the immune system, cognitive health, and even cell DNA.
The body’s own production of melatonin is reduced with the natural aging process. That’s why supplementation with this hormone can be a natural solution for people in advanced age that have trouble sleeping.
Supplementing with this hormone can help people who deal with sleep trouble and helping them balance their circadian rhythm.
Antioxidant protection & cell DNA support
Research shows that melatonin has strong antioxidant properties. It scavenges the body for some of the most common free radicals (hydroxyl and peroxyl) and it does so more efficiently than other antioxidants. Furthermore, it also supports other antioxidants , helping to raise overall antioxidant protection in the body in general.
It is also important for supporting cellular DNA. This is because it helps inhibit a certain kind of free radical (peroxynitrite)  that attacks DNA strands inside the cells. This therefore helps inhibit oxidative damage to the cells .
Melatonin helps to activate T-helper cells. T-helper cells regulate the immune response of other cells [12, 13]. This means that these cells help other cells respond to invasions of foreign molecules. By activating T-helper cells, melatonin thereby supports the immune system as a whole.
Cognitive decline is a normal consequence of the natural aging process. But it is little known that the onset of age-related cognitive health issues might be correlated to the level of melatonin in the body [14-16]. This is because melatonin offers support to the brain’s own antioxidant protection system and helps inhibit factors in the brain that can spur on age-induced cognitive decline, such as free radicals in the brain [17-20].
