Influence of melatonin on glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity
I’ve always been a little nervous about using any type of hormone replacement therapy be it estrogen, growth hormone, testesterone, insulin or melatonin. Precursers to these hormones may generally be considered safer because the body may only convert into the active hormone that which it needs. Melatonin was viewed as the “anti aging hormone of the week” several years ago after some studies in mice showed lower levels in aged mice when compared with younger mice. This study suggests a effect of meltonin on decreasing our bodies ability to use glucose efficiently.
