For most of us, when we think of melatonin, the first thing we think of is “a chemical to make you feel sleepy”.
And while it’s true that melatonin plays a critical role in governing our circadian rhythm, it turns out that melatonin is also one of the most powerful antioxidants produced in the body.
This is a huge deal when it comes to disease prevention, as oxidative stress and inflammation are primary causes of some of the deadliest and most common diseases known to man.
In today’s episode of Health Theory, Dr. Roger Seheult breaks down the science of melatonin, vitamin D, circadian rhythm, and much more.
So whether you’ve been having trouble sleeping, are worried about inflammation and disease prevention, or just want to brush up on your biochemistry, then I promise you’ll get something beneficial out of today’s episode.

“One of the things that we’ve discovered as scientists is that the mind and the body are a lot more connected than we thought they were.” [09:30]
“I think it would be a mistake to say that while I’m taking my vitamin D supplementation, I don’t need to go out into the sun.” [11:18]
“We see diabetes associated with obesity, obesity with inflammation, diabetes with oxidative stress. So we do see them correlate – it’s hard to tease them out.” [15:45]
“I can’t stress this enough: Alzheimer’s disease, autism, diabetes – a lot of these diseases that we see in society have been tied to mitochondrial damage from reactive oxygen species. It’s really important.” [20:50]
“We have technology today, that allows us to eat 24 hours a day. We have technology today that we can turn night into day if we want, we can work 24/7. There’s gamers that do that, they go straight for 48 hours and they die. And so what we’re finding out is that technology, even though it allows us to do certain things, they may not be optimal.” [37:43]
