Melatonin to fight Cancer and more…

High dose melatonin has been shown to inhibit cancer through at least 8 different mechanisms.  There are also numerous studies showing it helps prevent and treat Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease, heart disease and macular degeneration.  It can protect against “chemo brain” and also from radiation induced damage.

Melatonin is incredibly safe at much higher doses than typically used to assist with sleep.  It is not a soporific and most people can take it during the day without it causing sleepiness.

Melatonin dosing

  • Prevention:  Melatonin 180mg 30 minutes before bedtime
  • Treatment:  60mg 1-2 capsule 3-6x/day
  • 300mg 2 hours before PET/CT scan
  • Only red light in bedroom at night to prevent sleep disruption

Melatonin Source

Not all melatonin is created equal.   We recommend these sources.

Melatonin Max 60mg from Scientific Health Solutions is what we carry in office.  For great savings with a little effort we recommend bulk powder from Pure Bulk where you may also purchase empty capsules and capsule maker to prepare your own melatonin capsules.
