Additional Uses of Melatonin Supplements for Human Beings


Despite the fact that evidences are still not documented, melatonin for sleep supplements are continuously studied for the treatment of some medical conditions. To this point, no melatonin side effects have been reported if the supplements are used only in short duration. Studies of melatonin related to cancer primarily used laboratory animals as well as human cells in test tubes. Even if the results are promising, there is no sufficient evidence that will determine if whether melatonin can be safe and effective to use or it may decrease the efficiency of cancer therapies. Moreover, there is also some evidence which suggest that melatonin if administered at the proper melatonin dosage will help ease the symptoms of withdrawal in individuals who plan to reduce their use of the benzodiazepine drugs. Melatonin can somehow assuage their periods of anxiety as well as restlessness. Preliminary evidence also suggests that melatonin can improve sleep in persons suffering from specific conditions like Parkinson’s disease, bipolar disorder, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. Additionally, a new theory has surfaced that electromagnetic fields in low frequency can interfere with the levels of melatonin. Taken as a whole, this theory has not been supported by studies in humans.
