Melatonin – More Than a Sleep Aid

M

Melatonin and Immunity

Melatonin is a popular supplement for good reason. It provides us with safe and effective sleep that is not addictive. But Melatonin also can enhance and repair our immune systems.
Melatonin communicates with receptors in the white blood cells, and instructs them to turn on the activity of T-cells. Melatonin also optimizes the phagocyte cells. These cells are responsible for clearing pathogens from the bloodstream. Taking melatonin on a regular basis is very beneficial in supporting immunity of individuals over 40 since this is the age where natural melatonin production drops.
