Melatonin Oil Introduction
Melatonin, also known as MEL, is naturally produced in the body in response to light perception and has been used to relieve insomnia, combat jet lag, protect cells from free radical damage, strengthen the immune system, prevent cancer and prolong life.
Melatonin is a hormone made from a small glandular pineal gland in the brain that helps control sleep and wake-up cycles. It contains very small amounts of ingredients in foods such as meat, cereals, fruits and vegetables. Your body has its own internal clock that controls the natural circulation of your sleep and waking hours. So, to some extent, your biological clock will control the amount of melatonin in your body.
Normally, its level begins to rise in the middle and late stages, staying high for most of the time, and then falling in the early hours of the morning. Light affects how much melatonin your body produces. On shorter days in winter, your body may produce melatonin earlier or later than usual. This change can lead to symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or winter depression.
Natural melatonin levels slowly decrease with age, so some older people make very little or no amount of their own manufacture. It is an effective antioxidant that protects against free radicals and helps support glutathione activity in nerve tissue and can also be used to treat jet lag or sleep problems (insomnia).
Melatonin is the first biologically active substance found in the pineal gland. When the mammal is in the dark, the secretion of melatonin is immediately strengthened; when it becomes a bright environment, it stops. When the light changes, the rhythm of melatonin secretion can be measured from the urine. Other factors, such as sleep, eating conditions, mental state and stress, can also affect it. Injecting melatonin into the hypothalamus inhibits the secretion of gonadotropins, but it has also been observed that melatonin acts directly on the pituitary gland. Thus, melatonin can inhibit the secretion of gonadotropins through the hypothalamus and/or pituitary gland.

The generation and elimination of free radicals in normal bodies are in a state of dynamic equilibrium. Once this balance is destroyed, free radicals can damage biological macromolecules such as lipids, proteins and nucleic acids, leading to structural damage and aging of the body. Melatonin protects cell structure, prevents DNA damage, and reduces peroxide levels by scavenging free radicals, resisting oxidation and inhibiting lipid peroxidation.
It can shorten the time of awakening and sleep before going to bed, improve the quality of sleep, significantly reduce the number of awakenings during sleep, shorten the stage of shallow sleep, prolong the deep sleep stage, lower the wake-up threshold of the next morning, and have a strong adjustment time difference function. It is mainly used for whitening and moisturizing cosmetics, and is also commonly used in hair growth products. The biological functions of melatonin at home and abroad, especially as dietary supplements, have been extensively studied, indicating that it has various physiological functions such as promoting sleep, regulating jet lag, anti-aging, regulating immunity and anti-tumor.
a. Can help regulate other hormones and maintain the body's circadian rhythm.
b. Can help control time
c. Can help determine
d. It has a strong antioxidant effect.
e. Can release female reproductive hormones.
1. Improve people's sleep quality.
2. It is an important anti-aging hormone.
3. It can help regulate endocrine, eliminate pigmentation caused by dark spots, age spots, chloasma, pregnancy spots and solar radiation, thus making the skin white and moist.
