I have read in a book about longevity (sorry I forget the title) that Melatonin will actually increase mental performance and longevity after the age of 30-35 but taken before that age their is actually a decrease in lifespan.
So I guess the question is how much should one take and how old?
@KickAssBrockSamson That is really interesting, I’m going to try and find a reference for this. I’ve seen studies where older humans that take 3 mg/night increase there REM sleep. This is the part of sleep when oligodendrocytes reproduce and make myelin. Also, rats given an equivalent of 3mg/day increased the expression of many antioxidant genes in the cortex of the brain.
