Will Melatonin win out in the end in it’s battle with the big pharma companies who seem intent on making bigger and bigger profits out of our misery.It can hardly be shock that claims for Melatonin are quickly put down by the manfacturers of the multi million dollar Lunesta and Ambien. Melatonin costs just a small fraction of their price and is freely available without prescription.
But Melatonin it now seems does more than just help you sleep. This natural hormone has recognized anti-aging benefits that help you look and feel younger. And in addition Melatonin can it is claimed protect your bodies cells against diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s. It also stimulates the natural release of human growth hormone (HGH), one of the key hormones of youthfullness.
Melatonin is a extremely effective antioxidant. It wipes out free radicals those substances claimed to cause disease very easily. But much more than that it stimulates the production of additional anti oxidant enzymes which build a shield of protection throughout the body from a whole range of illness and anti aging effects.
To used melatonin as an aid to anti aging a dosage of around 0.5mg is sufficient while to aid sleep a higher dose of 1-2 mg is usually recommended. For serious disease such as cancer a very high dose of 20-40mg at bed time would be suggested.
You might think with the negative reaction of the big pharmaceutical companies you won’t discuss the use of Melatonin with your doctor but this would be foolish especially at the high dosages. When using to aid sleep my personal experience indicates it is best to take 1-2 hours before retiring for the night and then the next morning you”ll feel refreshed and not sluggish. Nursing or mothers to be should not use hormones or supplements without speaking to their doctors.
