Melatonin: The key to an increasing prevalence of mental health disorders?
Mental disorders have been estimated by the World Health Organization to affect 1 in 4 people. Common disorders such as depression or anxiety affect over 260million people and are a leading cause of disability. Lifestyle and diet together with the current COVID-19 outbreak have caused fear and stress levels to significantly increase ever since, further affecting mood, behaviour, reducing sleep quality and ultimately deteriorating mental health.
MELATONIN: A POSSIBLE SOLUTION?
Melatonin is a hormone responsible for controlling circadian rhythms and regulating sleep cycles. Sleep quality is essential, as during this state many biochemical processes take place in order to repair our body, whilst our brain stores and memorizes the information received throughout the day. In addition, vitamin B6 promotes the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, making it the perfect ally to stimulate a healthy nervous system.
