Melatonin interacts with lisinopril, which is a hypertension medicine.
Good afternoon, I was just diagnosed with osteopenia.
I just finished reading your interesting article on melatonin. I know you can't prescribe, but could you suggest a dosage that I could begin with? Any recommendation would be helpful as I do not have medical coverage right now.
I've really appreciated your new melatonin piece. I use a tiny dose every night 1.8 which over time has improved my mood, too. I hope you don't mind me using your thread to point out i5 is low progesterone that most women suffer, not low estrogen. This is a common but crucially important mistake that needs correcting everywhere we can.
Progesterone is a precursor to estrogen and hardly ever mentioned. Look up Dr. John Lee pioneer in the study of natural progesterone. Our bodies are actually so overloaded with estrogen from what we eat and outside sources (Xeno estrogen) that it leads to varying problems like bone weakness, thyroid problems, overweight, diabetes. Our hormones are completely out of balance which obviously is disruptive to our endocrine system. I could go on but this is your post about melatonin and just wanted to point this out in the hope it will be read and picked up by the many people who are affected by it.
Thank you. Anne
A big thank you for Art. Your melatonin series has been a pleasure to read, and we hope you continue writing many more posts on the subject. My husband and I are taking 50 mg melatonin each every night as a preventivate against age-related woes- and hope very gradually to reach the 160 mg/night dosage that Dr. Schallenberg is taking since 1980.
Please continue illustrating the earth clinic readers with your very interesting posts.
How are you feeling after your COVID 19 experience?
I just wanted to update this thread on the use of Melatonin for Osteoporosis/Osteopenia because a new study came out that adds further confirmation to the relationship between melatonin and osteoporosis :
Here is a very relevant quote from the study :
>>> ' This study confirmed that bone density positively correlates with the melatonin level in human blood. In the animal model, melatonin supplementation reverses postmenopausal osteoporosis. We explored the internal mechanism of melatonin treatment of osteoporosis. Melatonin promotes an increase in intracellular calcium ion concentrations through the STIM1/ORAI1 pathway to induce osteoblast proliferation. ' <<<
