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...

We present a 71-year-old Japanese man with metastasis prostate cancer that, during medical castration therapy, had torsades de pointes (TdP) with a QT prolongation and ventricular fibrillation (VF). His QT interval diminished after discontinuing the medical castration, and he developed no further VF recurrences for 15 months. Medical castration is a rare but possible trigger of TdP with QT prolongation and VF. PMID: 30518719 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The cellular uptake of CpG-HGNs in immune cells was studied in RAW 264.7 cells. Due to the enhanced delivery efficiency, CpG-HGNs exhibited a higher immune stimulatory activity compared with CpG ODNs, resulting in a dramatic...

Our lead [N,N′-bis(salicylidene)-1,2-phenylenediamine]chloridoiron(III) [Fe(III)salopheneCl] showed excellent in vitro activity against tumor cells sensitive but also resistant to common antitumor drugs. For the analysis of the biological results, information about the stability in various solvents at defined biological pH values is necessary...

ConclusionWe confirm no significant differences in the perioperative and oncological outcomes between off-clamp and on-clamp RPN. Avoided ischemia benefits renal function within 1-year follow-up after surgery. At longer follow-up, difference with on-clamp is softened.
