Melatonin is an immune system modulator, that is if you have an overactive or underactive immune system, it brings it back to normal.
Different in vitro and in vivo studies have reported melatonin to be an effective protective agent against toxicity induced by mycotoxins. How does melatonin accomplish this remarkable feat? Very simply, melatonin can attenuate ALL the damages exerted by various mycotoxins.
Melatonin is a hormone produced in the Pineal gland, which forms serotonin, the precursor of melatonin which, in turn, is the precursor of tryptophan. It governs our sleep cycles and regulates body rhythms to promote normal sleep. Excess blood levels of melatonin lead to a decrease in thyroid hormone levels. It is a neuroendocrine transducer that responds to light stimulation. Individuals with high levels of melatonin usually sleep longer and more soundly than those with lower levels. As age develops, less melatonin is produced by the body so sleep is usually shallower and of shorter duration.
Many people know about melatonin for sleep, but it does much more than help you fall asleep. For mold, it’s one of the most powerful brain antioxidants. Mold mycotoxins are fat-soluble, meaning they absorb and accumulate in the fattier tissues in our body. The brain is one of those locations. The effect of mycotoxins on the brain are “brain fog”, slowed thinking, and running out of brain fuel. This is lovingly called “mold brain.
Melatonin is one of the key REPAIR tools for the brain, and also for the liver and kidneys. In the liver, melatonin repairs liver cells that have been injured so badly, they otherwise would die off. It also stimulates the liver to make its own glutathione, so if someone doesn’t tolerate glutathione, we can start with melatonin and selenium, a trace mineral needed to make glutathione. You should also consider using Life's Healthiest Whole Food Glutathione.
Melatonin is also considered a “pro-kinetic”, meaning it stimulates peristalsis. Mycotoxins put the “stall” in peristalsis. Melatonin to the rescue! Melatonin gently combats this effect by supporting normal movement of the digestion throughout the whole tube.
Melatonin is best taken just after dinnertime, a few hours before your desired bedtime. Too much can cause morning grogginess. Even though we typically dose much higher than 1-4mg for mold repair, the liposomal form seems to boost absorption so we can dose less.
Melatonin is a great Kidney anti-oxidant. It is also fantastic for Brain health, especially for people with mold illness. It goes into regions where mycotoxins are and detoxifies the brain and kidneys.
Melatonin is essential to sleep and a healthy sleep-wake cycle, also contributes to maintaining gut health. Deficiencies in melatonin have been linked to increased permeability of the gut—the so-called "leaky gut" increasingly associated with a range of diseases.
A Polish study published in Prz Menopauzalny (Menopausal Review) just evaluated melatonin in menopausal women. Women who received 5mg of melatonin each night for 24 weeks not only slept better but also lost a little weight. I have to say, 5mg is a rather hefty dose!
MELATONIN Is a BRAIN Detoxifier! When the brain is deficient in Melatonin, metabolic waste and toxic material taken up from our environment build up in the brain because it can't be removed as quickly as it's being produced or taken in, and wherever there's a large amount of toxins that the body can't effectively do much with, infections of all different kinds start to grow. Eventually, brain function decreases in an increasingly noticeable way: poor memory, brain fog, ears ringing, insomnia, anxiety, depression, seizures, and on up to the neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and others. Melatonin deficiency is just one of the many possible causes of these symptoms, but even when they are due to something else, the deficiency will exacerbate them. Once the brain is detoxed using Melatonin, you'll be able to sleep again and the body's own production of melatonin will be restored.
Prescription Melatonin can be dangerous. It can be addictive and also cause hormones to become even more imbalanced. Homeopathic Melatonin is never addictive and will not throw your body further out of whack.
