Valentina: After my post: "Melatonin is not a miracle. Book Review"
It was here:
And here is more about Melatonin:
|Indications: As we metabolize oxygen, the life-sustaining gas, we generate highly reactive molecules called free radicals, which can corrode our cellular membranes and damage our DNA. The process, known as oxidation, weakens our minds and muscles as we age, and contributes to at least 60 degenerative diseases, including cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. The body produces several enzymes to inhibit oxidation, and nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E and beta carotene can provide extra protection. But most of these so-called antioxidants work only in certain parts of certain cells. Melatonin readily permeates any cell in any part of the body including the brain. Scientific research recently showed that the hormone can protect tissues form an amazing array of assaults. Basically, this product may help to ease insomnia, combat jet lag, prevent pregnancy (in large doses), and protect cells from free-radical damage. It is the hot sleeping pill, natural and cheap. Now scientists say this hormone could reset the body's biological clock, turning back the ravages of time. |
