Could Melatonin Supplements Prevent Osteoarthritis?

Could Melatonin Supplements
Prevent Osteoarthritis?

Melatonin supplements are normally taken by individuals who are having difficulty sleeping. However, research indicates that this supplement may also help increase bone density, flexibility and strength.

On July 3, 2014 Newsweek Magazine published an article titled "Melatonin Supplements Could Prevent Osteoarthritis." The article suggest that taking melatonin supplements "could prevent or even reverse osteoporosis.  The author cited a research study from McGill University in Montreal "that found when old rats were given melatonin supplements to regulate circadian rhythm their bones became denser and more flexible."

Life Choice's Melatonin

Life Choice® has the only patented version of melatonin in the world - Melapure Melatonin. 

Sweet Dreams Liquid Melatonin MelapureMelatonin is a substance found in almost all cells from the simplest life forms (algae) to the human body. Melatonin is produced and secreted by the pineal gland and as we age secretion decreases.Supplementation of melatonin may be able to replace the decreased secretion that is part of the aging process.

The hormone melatonin in clinical studies has shown to produce rapid sleep onset, and to increase the duration of sleep.
Some reports show that around age 6, melatonin secretions from the pineal gland begin to decrease due to the increased intake of food as we grow (melatonin is thought to be found in all foods). But the melatonin in foods may not be enough to replace the needs in the body, so it is highly recommended to use dietary supplementation as a means of receiving additional melatoninmore

Not all Melatonin's are created equal!

Life Choice's Melatonin is one of the highest grade Melatonin's on the market today! They use only 100% DMF (Drug Master File) patented pharmaceutical grade raw material, paying 700% more for their raw material than that which is purchased without a patent. 

The reason for this decision is twofold. First the material is clinically researched, and second, the quality is consistently high with each order.

Melatonin - Natural versus Synthetic

One would assume that melatonin is melatonin but that is clearly not the case.
Melatonin is a hormone and hormones must be USP Pharmaceutical grade to ensure safety.
The research is in…melatonin derived from unknown sources causes side effects. The pineal gland is very sensitive, and melatonin is hormone the pineal gland uses. Do you think triggering such an important gland that controls bodily functions such as sleep/wake cycle, reproductive development, and targets both the central and peripheral nervous system tissues should come from a source that is patented and secure? Can you imagine stimulating this gland with an animal pineal gland or animal mixed with unknown synthetic sources? It is no wonder why Chinese sources are associated with such radical side effects. Price comparison, Life Choice pays over 700% more than material can be sourced from China, and the price difference is worth every penny.

Melatonin - Standard Grade or Patented Pharmaceutical Grade?

Two forms of melatonin exist on the market, the natural standard form which comes from the pineal gland of animals and mixed with unknown synthetic material. And the patented USP pharmaceutical grade melatonin that Life Choice uses. Life Choice uses the same chemical pathway as natural melatonin secreted from the pineal gland.  Standard melatonin may pose a risk to humans because it can be contaminated with animal viruses. Patented Pharmaceutical grade does not as it is safer because it is produced to be free from biological contaminants.
