Melatonin Benefits Go Beyond Improved Sleep

Melatonin Benefits Go Beyond Improved Sleep
Melatonin has powerful antioxidant properties that protect proteins and lipids against damage.  It can rid the body of dangerous free radicals and also has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, therefore protecting the brain.  Since the body produces less melatonin as we age, we begin to lose these antioxidant protective properties and that can lead to neurodegenerative diseases.
