20 Dec Melatonin in Cancer Care
You may have heard that melatonin is the great alternative to sleep medications, but did you know that melatonin is also a powerful agent in cancer? In appropriate doses and in certain cancers, melatonin has been shown to increase tumor cell killing, decrease metabolic wasting symptoms, improve radiation outcomes and decrease negative chemotherapy effects when used in conjunction with select chemotherapy drugs. Most importantly, melatonin has also been shown to improve survival time as a sole agent in terminal cancer patients.
