Melatonin - More than Sleep

If you have trouble sleeping, we may suggest a melatonin supplement as part of your rejuvenation program. A natural sleep aid, melatonin helps regulate your circadian rhythm, stimulating chemical reactions that wind down your body and begin nightly cleaning activities. As you age, your melatonin levels naturally decline. Scientists think that melatonin signals your body’s cells to begin repairing damage from the day’s events. That’s one reason it also seems to have health benefits beyond just helping you sleep well.

Melatonin may also support:

  • Eye health, specifically age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.

  • Heart health, helping protect the cardiovascular system against inflammation and by scavenging free radicals. 

  • Brain health. Studies have linked melatonin to helping prevent neurocognitive decline, possibly because it helps the glymphatic system wash metabolic wastes from neuronal tissues.

If you’re interested in taking a melatonin supplement, please reach out to your Apeiron Life expert. As always, it’s important to check with your doctor before starting a new supplement, and we can help facilitate the conversation.
