It is commonly known as the ‘jet-lag’ pill and is available over the counter in many countries but is a prescription medicine in the United Kingdom. It decreases throughout life with increasing age and it is thought by some scientists to be the master orchestrator of all hormones and believed to the ultimate ageing hormone when its levels decrease. It is thought to indirectly control all body systems.
Melatonin will improve your sleep quality when taken daily amongst a whole host of other benefits, such as improved infertility, easier adaptability to shift/night work, enhanced immunity and well being.
Other hormones within the hormonal cascade, include pregnenolone (the brain hormone), DHEA (the happy hormone), growth hormone (the repair and regeneration hormone) and HCG (the human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone), amongst others. All hormones decrease with age contributing to the ageing process. These hormones all work in conjunction with one another as part of the orchestra and have many wonderful functions. Replacing the depleted levels of these hormones will aid towards the anti-ageing process in many different ways, for example, most notably, slowing down dementia and improving one’s sense of well-being, with many benefits and functions yet to be discovered.
These hormones are precursors to hormones lower down in the chain, for example, testosterone, the replacement of which, is noticeably felt. Replacement of these hormones confers long term benefits with usually little immediate effects.
