"Melatonin is released by the pineal gland in the brain when it starts to get dark. Melatonin prepares our body for sleep, but it also has many important health benefits. An imbalance of melatonin can have disastrous effects on depression to shortened lifespan and even cancer. Melatonin shuts down brain activity, making it difficult to concentrate or be physically active. While you sleep, melatonin goes to work! Sometimes it is referred to as your body’s “trash collector” because it goes to every cell in our body and cleans out the free radicals and other toxins that are harmful. Melatonin is perhaps the most powerful antioxidant available to our body. Have you ever wondered why you get cold in the middle of the night? If melatonin is working properly, you should feel colder in the pre-dawn hours of 2:00-4:00 am. That’s because we don’t have as much blood in our arms and legs and so our body temperature drops. If we don’t feel colder during these pre-dawn hours, we may not have enough melatonin in our system and should test these levels to better find out. Low nighttime melatonin is not a good sign and may even be a factor in depression. Imbalanced melatonin is directly linked to increases in cancer rates for men and women. This problem is especially evident in people who work at night. These workers usually have to work during their sleep cycle, but the indoor lighting is bright enough to suppress melatonin. In Long-term studies, Women shift workers experienced a 500% increase in breast cancer, while men had approximately 40% higher rates of colorectal and bone cancer! (Ref:1 J Rabe-Jablonska et al., Diurnal profile of melatonin secretion in the acute phase of major depression and in remission". Med Sci Monit. 2001 Sep-Oct;7(5):946-52).
