Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is a derivative of the amino acid tryptophan and is widely distributed in food sources, such as milk, almonds, bananas, beets, cucumbers, mustard, and tomatoes. In humans, melatonin is primarily synthesised by the pineal gland. Melatonin has been shown to support circadian rhythm, hormone balance, reproductive health, cognition, mood, blood sugar regulation, and bone metabolism, while improving overall antioxidant status and lowering blood pressure. Melatonin is known for helping some people achieve a better night’s sleep, which is how it earned its nickname as “the sleep hormone.” While melatonin is involved in regulating our internal body clock, that’s just the beginning of its health-promoting benefits. Scientific evidence now suggests that melatonin plays a crucial role in a variety of metabolic functions, including antioxidant properties, neuroprotection, anti-inflammatory defence and immune system support. Emerging science also suggests that it may protect our genetic material and guard against age-related disease and decline. Because melatonin production reduces with age, experts believe that its decline contributes to both the ageing process and a generalised deterioration of health. A growing body of evidence reveals how melatonin is able to play such a major role in combating the ageing process. Melatonin has been found to possess 200% more antioxidant power than vitamin E and to be superior to glutathione as well as vitamin C in reducing oxidative damage. As such a potent antioxidant, melatonin plays a powerful role in fighting free-radical-related diseases.
