Melatonin blocks the growth of prostate cancer cells
Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health measured melatonin levels in 928 men. They found that men who produce enough melatonin have a lower risk for developing advanced prostate cancer by 75%.
Having enough melatonin helps control sleep
-related risk factors for developing prostate cancer.
If you don’t get the optimal melatonin levels, you won’t get restful sleep
It throws off your sleep cylce and you produce even less melatonin. And this cycle is what puts you at risk for advanced prostate cancer. That’s why you have to make sure your body is producing enough melatonin on its own. And that’s where your diet can help.
Boost your melatonin levels with these eight foods
You can take a melatonin to boost your melatonin levels, however melatonin is a hormone and taking medication on a regular basis may disrupt your natural hormonal balance.
Instead, eat the right foods.
Researchers in Thailand found that fruits like orange and banana help, as well as tart cherry juice.
Other foods that produce more melatonin include:
While these foods contain smaller amounts of melatonin than the dose typically found in a supplement, incorporating a variety of these foods into your diet is easy and will boost your melatonin levels.
Also, make sure you avoid bright, artificial lights at night, including television and glowing electronics. Remember, you produce this hormone naturally in the absence of any light. Make the room you sleep in as dark as possible to keep your prostate risk at bay.
