Melatonin May Be The Fountain of Youth for Perimenopausal and Menopausal Women!

Italian researchers recently uncovered a significant link between melatonin and the onset of menopause.

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain and is most well known for its sleep promoting effects.

The researchers found that 3 mg of melatonin given each night for 6 month restored menstrual cycles and fertility in perimenopausal women and menopausal women. The researchers concluded, “The six-month treatment with melatonin produced a remarkable and highly significant improvement in thyroid function, positive changes of reproductive hormones toward more juvenile levels and abrogation of menopause-related depression.”

These are fascinating findings because through the use of melatonin we are allowing the body to correct its own hormone imbalances. A side benefit of melatonin is it appears to decrease the risk of breast cancer and may in fact be a helpful tool in the treatment of existing breast cancer.
