What to expect

The physiological function of endogenous melatonin was first discovered in the 1950s when it was observed to have an important role in the regulation of the body’s circadian rhythm. Since that time, much has been discovered about the role of melatonin in the human body. Melatonin acts as a natural antioxidant, combating free radicals that cause cellular damage, and possesses the unique capability to diffuse across the blood-brain barrier. Understanding the full extent of how melatonin influences human physiology can offer practitioners valuable insight into potential treatment options for patients.
