Melatonin and sleep
A good night’s sleep is crucial for overall health and well-being. But many people experience difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. Healthy sleep patterns are governed by your body’s circadian rhythm and proper melatonin secretion is essential to maintaining a healthy circadian rhythm.

Melatonin and oxidative stress
Melatonin is especially important for healthy cellular DNA and mitochondria support because it helps inhibit oxidative damage. Melatonin does this more effectively than many other antioxidants.
