Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced by the body, whose principal function is to regulate the circadian cycle.
Besides, melatonin also promotes the good functioning of the body and acts as an antioxidant. Isn’t it interesting?
Produced by the pineal gland, which is only active at night, melatonin naturally induces sleep.
At night, avoid lights and aromatic or acoustic stimuli, which accelerate metabolism and reduce melatonin production.
Usually, melatonin production decreases as we age, the reason sleep disorders are more frequent in adults and elders.
Melatonin improves seasonal depression, reduces stomach acidity, prevents cancer, and helps with polycystic ovary syndrome.
The hormone also treats migraines, improves chemotherapy response, and prevents baldness and hair loss. Isn’t it amazing?
Many people are saying that melatonin produced in the lungs can prevent infection by the novel coronavirus. Have you heard about it?
This finding by researchers at the University of São Paulo, Brazil (USP) helps understand why some people weren’t infected, or why some tested positive for Sars-CoV-2, detected by RT-PCR testing, but didn’t show any symptoms of Covid-19.
The finding opens a perspective of using melatonin intranasally – in drops or spray – to hinder the evolution in presymptomatic patients.
However, Markus says that it is still necessary to study more about melatonin and its production. She says that it can be stimulated and injected into the body but, caution is needed, as there aren’t any confirmations yet.
