DHEA Melatonin MSM Misc. Health Information

Newsweek, "Melatonin", G. Cowley, August 7, 1995."It's the hot sleeping pill, natural and cheap. Now scientists say this hormone could reset the body's aging clock, turning back the ravages of time. ...Studies point to many possible uses. The drug may help ease insomnia, combat jet lag, prevent pregnancy (in large doses), protect cells from free-radical damage, boost the immune system, prevent cancer, and extend life. ...No one knows just how neatly any of these [animal studies] will apply to people. But together they suggest that melatonin could help us prevent, and even treat, the most common afflictions of old age. Where cancer is concerned, the evidence isn't limited to mouse studies. Autopsy studies suggest that pineal calcification (a condition that hardens the gland) is most common in countries with high rates of breast cancer and least common in countries where breast cancer is rare. ...Melatonin may also prove useful for fighting existing malignancies."

Newsweek, "Melatonin Mania", G. Cowley, November 6, 1995 Cover Story
"Studies suggest that low-dose supplements can hasten sleep and ease jet lag, without the hazards or side effects of prescription sleeping pills." Melatonin may have many other uses and has been reported to make people feel better, strengthen the immune system, and reduce free radicals in the body. Current research is underway to determine melatonin's effect as an anti-oxidant, immno-modulator in cancer, delayed sleep-phase disorders, and jet lag. Tests are still under way so there is much to still be learned about melatonin and its effects on the human body." (See other excerpts in

Newsweek: Melatonin. by Geoffrey Cowley August 7, 1995 p46. 

Abstract: Recent research indicates that melatonin boosts the immune system, slows the growth of cataracts and tumors, prevents heart disease, and slows cell decay. The pill is inexpensive and is already becoming popular for its ability to treat insomnia and stress. 


Melatonin is the most effective antioxidant yet studied because it easily penetrates cell membranes (especially in the brain) to provide protection against free radicals throughout all our cells. Melatonin crosses the blood-brain barrier very effectively. It appears to protect the central nervous system against injury, disease, and aging better than any other substance. Melatonin is used to induce drowsiness and improve sleep patterns. More and more doctors are recommending Melatonin as a safe and effective insomnia therapy instead of dangerous FDA-approved drugs such as Halcion, Xanax, and Valium.

European doctors are prescribing Melatonin in doses of 10 to 50 mg a night to treat cancer because of strong evidence that Melatonin can prevent many forms of cancer, especially breast cancer.


It is widely believed that Melatonin is the single most effective anti-aging therapy in the world. It has been shown, in thousands of published studies, to protect against almost every disease associated with aging including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, age-associated immune impairment, and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, as well as against aging itself. Melatonin has been shown to be completely safe in humans in doses of up to 1,000 mg daily. The most common side effect of taking too much Melatonin is feeling drowsy when you wake up, which can be prevented by taking less Melatonin the next night.  Favorable reports on Melatonin have been featured in almost every news and magazine program in America, including cover stories in NEWSWEEK magazine and USA Today, and feature stories on ABC's 20/20,


High doses of Melatonin are being used in Europe as a birth control pill. If you are pregnant, or seeking to become pregnant, do not take Melatonin. Melatonin boosts the production of immune system cells throughout the body. This is extremely important for people over age 40 who will suffer a progressive decline in immune function as they age. If you have an immune system cancer such as leukemia or lymphoma, however, you may not want to take Melatonin until more is known about Melatonin's effects on these types of cancer.


Some doctors recommend that women with ovarian cancer not take Melatonin. It is not yet clear whether Melatonin is beneficial or harmful for women with ovarian cancer.

Melatonin may relieve many forms of depression.
