Melatonin Increases Bone Density

807Most people know that melatonin controls your sleep and wake patterns, but did you know that normal levels are imperative for bone health too? When your body has the proper level of melatonin, it signals to cells to produce bone matrix proteins. These proteins are what cause bone density and formation.*

The older you get the more your bone density decreases. Protect your bone density by providing your body with its necessary levels of melatonin. Cherries are a great source of melatonin; it can also be found in easy-to-take supplements!
