The AMAZING Health Benefits of Melatonin
You may know melatonin is a powerful sleep hormone. But what you don’t know is that it’s very powerful at increasing your energy, boosting your immune system, and also protecting you from disease.
I’ve been wanting to discuss melatonin for quite some time now because it’s become wildly popular over the past two years due to its immune boosting benefits.
But there’s also some fascinating new science that’s come out on melatonin that shows us all the ways we can use it to really transform our health.
Melatonin has been proven to be made in two different areas of our body. One, in the pineal gland in response to darkness, meaning that it’s nighttime and you go into your dark room and you have a response in your body where you’re going to produce more melatonin.
The second way melatonin is produced in the body is through the mitochondria. This melatonin produced in the mitochondria is known as subcellular melatonin. And it’s not for the purpose of helping you sleep better at night, it’s for the purpose of fighting off free radicals within the cell, because it’s produced in the cell and also consumed by the cell.
The more free, radical buildup that you have within the cell, the more that the cells triggered to produce melatonin. And the reason for this is because melatonin is a very, very powerful antioxidant. Now the amount of melatonin produced within the cell is far greater than the melatonin produced within the pineal gland.
And for this reason, this is why melatonin produced by the mitochondria is known as the hormone of daylight.
Well, hold up just a minute here. How could it be the hormone of darkness and also the hormone of daylight?
Top Benefits of Melatonin
1) Improve sleep, wake cycles, and your biological rhythm. So it’s going to improve the quality of your sleep, which is a key pillar to your overall.
I would take this seriously because whenever somebody is struggling with their sleep, they are ultimately struggling with their general health and wellbeing, because a lack of sleep literally is linked to so many different diseases, including one of the number one killers of people today: cardiovascular conditions.
Melatonin has been preferred for many years over using a pharmaceutical sleep aid. And the reason for that is because pharmaceutical sleep aids tend to lead to memory impairment and make you feel groggy, whereas melatonin has actually been able to improve wake up performance.
2) Boosts your immune system function.
Inevitably, if you improve your quality, you’re going to boost immune function. However, melatonin does go directly towards improving the immune system and its ability to fight off infections. Melatonin has been shown to help fight off viruses, improve an aging immune system.
As you age, your immune system declines. You know, we know that your sleep typically declines as you age, which is going to affect your immune system, but also because your thymus gland shrinks as you age your immune system declines. Well guess what? Melatonin can actually help improve that and especially help you in fighting off these viruses.
3) Enhances antibody response. So you get a virus of any sort. And after that virus, you need antibodies to be able to protect you. Well, melatonin has been shown to actually help with that.
4) Enhances T cell activity. This allows them to more effectively destroy pathogens within the body.
5) Protection against bacterial infection. So melatonin is really good at boosting your immune system, protecting you from viruses in any type of infection, but not only that, actually building up that antibody response so you can remain protected.
6) Anti-cancer benefits. When we look at the number one killer and number two killer of people prematurely, it’s going to first be heart disease and two is going to be cancer. So a lot of people are suffering from cancer and melatonin can actually provide some support in fighting this off because it’s one of the most powerful antioxidants right up there next to glutathione. It’s very, very efficient at fighting off those free radicals within the cell that we talked about.
7) Increases activity of natural killer cells
Preclinical studies have shown that melatonin can suppress breast cancer, brain cancer, ovarian cancer, melanoma, uterine cancer, prostate and also colon cancer. Colon cancer alone is estimated to be the number one killer of millennials.
How we can improve melatonin production at night, the Hormone of darkness.
1) Supplement with melatonin.
First of all, I wouldn’t do it all the time. I would only use melatonin, intermittently. However, when I do use it, it’s highly beneficial.
Use it if you’re struggling with sleep wake cycles. You might have jet lag, or your general sleep is off. Well, you can use that to help kind of act as a reset and get you back on track.
If you’re struggling to fall asleep at night, it can just act as a little bit of a boost to help you fall asleep faster for that period of time that you’re struggling.
If you’re fighting off an infection or you’re sick. If you get a better quality of sleep, then you’re going to be able to fight off whatever is invading your body much quicker. It’s also a powerful antioxidant, so it’s great to use when sick, in order to get that extra antioxidant support, because we have these powerful antioxidants that our body needs to boost our immune system to fight these things off.
2) No coffee anytime after noon. So let’s say you have a coffee in the morning. Well, use noon as the cutoff time. Some people are far more sensitive to this than others. However, in general, if you want to boost your melatonin levels, go easy on drinking coffee anytime after 12.
4) No LED lights or artificial lights, like blue lights – cell phones, computers, TV, anything like that late at night. This actually diminishes our melatonin levels.
So we want to stay away from all of those artificial lights we can do.
5) Increase certain foods. Goji berries, tart cherries, walnuts, almonds, eggs, and even milk.
6) Hot baths
7) Cool your room at night. Drop your temperature in your room, down to, you know, 65, 68 degrees.
8) Keep your room pitch black. If you have a nightlight in your room, it could actually mess with your melatonin levels.
How we can produce more of the hormone of daylight.
(It plays by a whole different set of rules.)
And we certainly want to boost this form of melatonin in our bodies, simply because it’s powerful at fighting free radicals, boosting antioxidant function, boosting our immune health and most importantly fighting disease. That’s something we all want.
Using near infrared light.
What in the world is near infrared light? It’s the sun!
We live in a society that demonizes the sun all the time. If you go out in the sun, you’re supposed to cover yourself in sunscreen. And if you are out in the sun, make sure it’s not for long periods of time.
The fact is, the sun is very healthy and it’s one of the reasons so many people have Vitamin D deficiencies today, simply because we are just not getting enough sun exposure.
So how can you use this? Well, basically one of the best methods is waking up in the morning, going out, letting the sun hit your skin.
But it’s not only about letting the sun hit your skin. You also can get near infrared light therapy from other sources. So if you have seen people on the internet and they’re using these red light panels, or they’re shining a red light on them for periods throughout the day, that’s what they’re doing.
You could also use an infrared sauna.
Melatonin is powerful for good health. It’s the hormone of daylight. It’s the hormone of darkness.
