|CAN MELATONIN REALLY HELP YOU SIBO, LEAKY GUT AND POOR DIGESTION?
I’m always up for a good conversation on the idea of super physiologic dosing with Melatonin. Research clearly shows that it combat stress (Ref), is anti aging (Ref), protects against infections through the inflamasomes (Ref), repairs cells in the body like the brain and cardiovascular and GUT! Yup Gut….Check this out!
“Melatonin specifically increases the magnitude of swarming in cultures of E. aerogenes, but not in Escherichia coli or Klebsiella pneumoniae. “
“It is present throughout the gastrointestinal system [Ref–Ref], in part from pineal melatonin secretion [Ref, Ref], but there is evidence for melatonin biosynthetic enzymes in biliary cholangiocytes, enterochromaffin cells and intestinal mucosa [Ref, Ref]. “
Besides protecting the gut from oxidative damage especially during stress, it seems to inhibit the bad bacteria and allow the good to have a healthy circadian rhythm to align with the host with a robust growth phase called “swarming”!
My Webinar I did on Melatonin for immune function and virus support.
