How To Boost Melatonin Naturally

Most people know melatonin as the sleep hormone. And that’s right. It helps your body cycle down every night so you can rest. But melatonin is so much more than that… It’s also one of your body’s most powerful cancer killers. Studies show melatonin boosts the immune system. It protects against the toxic side effects of chemo and radiation. It improves wound healing after surgery. And it even increases cancer survival rates.1 And new research proves that melatonin suppresses the growth of breast cancer tumors. How does melatonin affect breast cancer? Mammograms detect cancer. In a lab at Michigan State University, researchers grew breast cancer tumors called “mammospheres.” They fed the tumors with chemicals that we already know fuel growth. They used real estrogen and fake estrogens like bisphenol A (BPA), the toxic chemical found in plastics and thousands of household items. Treating the cells with melatonin reduced the number and size of the tumors. In other words, melatonin inhibits cancer cell growth.  And it works in real people, too. In one study, patients with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, were given either radiation alone, or radiation and melatonin. After one year, 23% of the melatonin patients were still alive.  But none of the radiation group survived.2  It’s the same with chemo. Doctors in Italy gave melatonin to lung cancer patients who didn’t respond to chemo. A year later, 26% of t...

The chemokine ligand 13 (CXCL13) and its chemokine receptor 5 (CXCR5) are among the key chemotactic factors which play crucial roles in deriving cancer cell biology. CXCL13/CXCR5 signaling axis makes pivotal contributions to the development and progression of ...

In this study, the antifungal activity of base analogues, 5-flucytosine (5-FC) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), was tested against planktonic cells as well as against mature biofilm.MethodsTests were performed according the EUCAST methodology. Antibiofilm effectiveness of tested drugs was determined by the crystal violet staining method. The cytotoxicity assays was performed according to the ISO 10993-5 norm.Results5-FC and 5-FU were effective against fifteen fluconazole resistant Candida glabrata strains with an average minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 0.152 mg/L and 0.39 mg/L, respectively.

Authors: Banqueri M, Méndez M, Gómez-Lázaro E, Arias JL Abstract Childhood maltreatment and neglect lead to a wide range of mental disorders highlighted by hormone and immune alterations in neglected children. This social-health challenge has led to the creation of early stress models such as maternal separation (MS) in rodents. We performed a MS model (4 h per day, 21 days; n = 16 MS and n = 16 control), and then measured three parameters in adult male rat brains, in order to look for long-term effects of early life stress. We used immunocytoche...
