Melatonin – “mother hormone of chronobiology”
Melatonin, known as the “mother hormone of chronobiology”, has been known as an effective sleeping agent since its discovery in 1958. Thanks to decades of research, it has since risen to become a true star among hormones that has already exceeded all scientific expectations. And research is still ongoing in other fields for the therapeutic use of melatonin, opening up new applications that offer considerable promise.
Melatonin, the jack of all trades
It has already been scientifically proven that melatonin not only regulates sleep but also serves as an antioxidant to protect the body from free radicals, ensuring that we enjoy a high quality of life until old age. It also stimulates the immune system to defend against infections. Furthermore, it reduces blood pressure, helping to protect against cardiovascular diseases.
Studies have repeatedly proven the outstanding benefits offered by melatonin in treating diseases such as cancer, diabetes, migraines, fibromyalgia, eye disorders and infertility, as well as depression, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. And it is an absolutely safe, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic agent.
