Melatonin is known to improve sleep, shorten the awakening time before sleep and sleep time, improve sleep quality, significantly reduce the number of awakenings during sleep, shorten the light sleep stage, prolong the deep sleep stage, and lower the wake-up threshold in the next morning. It has strong time difference adjustment function.
The biggest characteristic of melatonin is that it is the strongest endogenous free radical scavenger found so far. The basic function of melatonin is to participate in the antioxidant system and prevent cells from oxidative damage. In this regard, its efficacy exceeds all known substances in the body.
Its functions include:
1、Prevention of pathological changes
Because melatonin is easy to enter cells, it can protect nuclear DNA. If DNA is damaged, it can lead to cancer.
2、Adjust circadian rhythm
The secretion of melatonin has a circadian rhythm. After nightfall, the light stimulation weakens, the enzyme activity of melatonin synthesis in the pineal gland increases, and the secretion level of melatonin in the body increases correspondingly, reaching the peak at 2-3 a.m. the level of melatonin at night directly affects the quality of sleep. With the growth of age, the pineal gland shrinks until calcification, resulting in the weakening or disappearance of the rhythm of the biological clock, Especially after 35 years old, the level of melatonin secreted by the body decreased significantly, with an average decrease of 10-15% every 10 years, leading to sleep disorders and a series of functional disorders. The decrease of melatonin level and sleep is one of the important signs of human brain aging. Therefore, the supplement of melatonin in vitro can maintain the melatonin level in the body in a young state, adjust and restore the circadian rhythm, which can not only deepen sleep, but also improve the quality of life, To improve the quality of sleep, it is more important to improve the functional state of the whole body, improve the quality of life and delay the process of aging.
The pineal gland of the elderly gradually shrinks and the secretion of melatonin correspondingly decreases. The lack of melatonin in various organs of the body leads to aging and diseases. Scientists call the pineal gland the body’s “aging clock.”. We supplement melatonin from the body, and then we can turn back the aging clock.
