Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland (also called the epiphysis). Melatonin secretion is inhibited in the presence of light and stimulated when it is dark. The maximum production is reached from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m., hence the names of sleep hormone or dark hormone. By means of melatonin, the pineal gland informs the brain about the relative durations of the hours of darkness and lighting over a 24-hour period (daily cycle), but also throughout the year (seasonal cycle). By secreting melatonin, the pineal gland "tells" the brain that it is dark and that it is the right time to sleep.
Spirulina is a great antioxidant, improves fatigue, and boosts immunity. Not only is it a good food supplement, but it can be used to help treat disorders as well.
Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae and is a cyanobacterium that belongs to the Oscillatoraceae family.
It has long been used as a food supplement for humans, but it was only recently that more scientists have been looking it as a potential pharmaceutical.
It had been found to activate macrophages, natural killer cells, T cells, B cells, and to stimulate the production of Interferon-gamma (IFN-?) and other cytokines.
Some studies have revealed its potential properties: anti-carcinogenic, immunostimulants, antigenotoxic, anti-hepatotoxic, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic and antihypertensive.
Spirulina contains high levels of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecules such as c-phycocyanin, one of the richest sources of plant proteins, vitamin B12 and vitamin A.
