Melatonin is a hormone manufactured from serotonin (our feel good hormone) and secreted by the pineal gland. The human body is governed by an internal clock that signals the release of many hormones that regulate various body functions. Melatonin is most well known for its ability to control our sleep-wake cycles. It is secreted in darkness and suppressed by the light. Melatonin is also used to treat jetlag. Children have much higher melatonin levels than adults and, sadly, as we age these levels dramatically drop. Anti-aging specialists believe melatonin is essential in slowing aging. Low levels of melatonin are also found in those with sleep and depressive disorders.
The Importance of Vitamin B12
Studies show that B12 causes an earlier release of melatonin at night which resets the sleep-wake cycle. B12 acts directly on the pineal gland to provoke a faster release of melatonin. Research has also shown that B12 helps you get to sleep easier and sensitizes you to morning light, which helps you wake up feeling refreshed, especially in the elderly who often have sleep problems.
Additionally, vitamin B12 helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
