Melatonin (the sleep hormone) is produced in the brain - pineal gland - but acts as an antioxidant within the ovaries & follicles, helping to prevent damage from free radicals
Melatonin also helps to regulate the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) — keeping your reproductive rhythm active (infradian rhythm)
Do you ever struggle with irregular periods or anovulatory cycles?
What about fertility issues?
How to support natural melatonin release?
Shut off electronics 2 hours before bed or use blue-light blockers
Turn off bright overhead lights & use low watt lamps
Read an actual hand-held book, take a bath, listen to music, enjoy conversation with family or friends
Drink Tart Cherry Juice 30 minutes before bed to help promote the natural release
Remember: It is just as important to get outside into the sunshine during the day, as it is to block out blue-light at night in supporting the natural release and re-uptake of melatonin
