Melatonin and Breast CancerA Day in the Life Health & Fitness Things We Love Tried & Tested
Sleep is a key component of a healthy lifestyle.
Melatonin is a popular supplement that’s best known for its ability to help people sleep. I recently read an article that showed new evidence that suggests that melatonin may also help lower your risk of breast cancer and improve treatment outcomes.
Recent research has looked into the possibility that melatonin might help prevent breast cancer, as well as slow its growth and help treatment work more effectively. Here’s what these studies have found:
🔸A 2018 study found that the antiestrogenic (a substance that prevents cells from making and using estrogen) and antioxidant properties of melatonin might help lower the risk of breast cancer.
🔸In 2021, researchers found that melatonin use might slow the growth of triple-negative breast cancer, a fast-growing and hard-to-treat type of breast cancer.
🔸In a 2022 study, researchers found that melatonin slowed breast cancer growth and that taking melatonin during treatment helped the treatment work more effectively.
🔸In another study from 2022 researchers concluded that melatonin was a promising anticancer agent.
It was noted that more research is needed.
Some people find that taking supplements during breast cancer treatment helps them feel better & can help your body get the right balance of support for energy and health.
Ive been using the Arbonne SleepWell vegan melatonin spray. It is a Botanical Blend of Chamomile Flower, Hops Flower, Passion Flower, and Valerian Root Extracts.
