Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is a hormone produced by the pineal gland, located in the brain stem; which it is released in the evening hours. The hormone production is highest in early childhood, it slows after age 20 and begins to decrease after age 45, disappeared almost completely in anxiety.
Its secretion follows a circadian rhythm: it begins at dusk, reaching its peak during the night decreases to a minimum in the morning and remains very low throughout the day. In dark conditions, when nerve cells of the retina are not stimulated by light, the hypothalamus stimulates the epiphysis to produce melatonin.
Ministration of exogenous melatonin can guarantee a good night's rest, and that regulates sleep-wake rhythm. It seems to be protected from stress and depression. Melatonin protects the pineal gland from aging, since it has a powerful anti-aging action on the gland itself. If ministration of exogenous melatonin, the pineal gland ages more slowly, thus slowing down the process of general aging of the body, the processes of tissue degradation and physical and mental decline in old age.
Melatonin reduces better than other antioxidants free radicals. They have a double power over vitamin E and five times the glutathione. Melatonin, being soluble in both water and fat, can act against free radicals in all environments.
If the level of melatonin in the body is low, replace the lack Supplying exogenous; if instead the endogenous level (already present in the body) is high, further ministration of Melatonin has no effect because the body assimilates the required dose, eliminating the remainder via urine.
