Melatonin, Sleep and Your Health

By Papillex April 24, 2013

Is lack of and/or poor sleep quality interfering with your healing?

Melatonin – a powerful hormone best known for regulating circadian rhythms (that is, our internal 24-hour clock) – is secreted by the pineal gland in the brain mainly at night while we sleep. Insufficient rest and sub-optimal sleeping conditions interfere with the brain’s production of melatonin.

In an article published in JAMA, researchers found an association between low levels of melatonin and an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In addition to increasing the risk of developing heart disease and stroke, having type 2 diabetes may also be a contributing factor in poor cervical cancer prognosis.

This new information sheds light on the importance of a consistent good nights rest on overall health and well-being. Papillex and healthy lifestyle work hand-in-hand, that’s why it’s important to get plenty (7-8 hours) and to make sleep hygiene an integral part of your healthy lifestyle.
