Every ageless beauty, needs all the help they can to get rid of the number one cause of aging….inflammation.
One teeny little supplement packs a huge punch, but the best way to get more of this powerful supplement is to help your body produce it naturally.
Melatonin is a:
- Powerful anti-oxidant
- Free radical scavenger
- Fights inflammation
- May slow down cellular aging.
- Needed for optimal immune system function
- Helps body rid itself of cancer cells
Here’s what you need to know:
Our bodies start producing melatonin around 9 or 10pm at night.
If you are watching TV or reading on a kindle or surfing on your i-pad your body’s ability to produce melatonin is disrupted.
According to Dr. Mercola “even the slightest amount of light in the white or blue bandwidths is enough to seriously depress your pineal gland’s production of melatonin for the night”.
This means, night lights, street lights, even the light from your clock radio can interfere with melatonin production.
Dr. Mercola says the absolute best way to get enough melatonin is by helping your body produce it naturally.
Here’s what you can do:
- Sleep in complete darkness
- Shut the curtains
- Throw a wash cloth over your clock
- Install low-wattage yellow, orange or red light night lights, these types of light do not shut down melatonin production.
- Salt lamps are great
- Avoid watching TV or using your computer 1 hour before bedtime
Dr. Mercola also says “ Melatonin is Breast Cancer’s Worst Nightmare”.
Melatonin can cause cancer cells to self-destruct, and boosts the production of immune stimulating substances such as interleukin-2.
Melatonin is mostly known for improving sleep issues and that is exactly why I started taking it, and it worked.
I personally take one 5 mg. of Intensive Nutrition, Inc. Melatonin which is a natural form of melatonin vs a synthetic form.
Consult your doctor before you start supplementing with Melatonin.
