What is melatonin?

LA MELATONINA is an indole hormone derived from tryptophan that is produced rhythmically in the pineal gland with a nocturnal peak between 2 and 3 in the morning. However, during the day melatonin levels are very low because light inhibits the production of melatonin. This is pineal melatonin.
On the other hand, today we know that virtually all tissues produce melatonin, including the skin. This extrapineal melatonin differs from the pineal in that its synthesis is independent of the light-dark cycle, which occurs in concentrations greater than the pineal and does not go into circulation. It is a melatonin that has a cellular protective function.
Another important characteristic of melatonin is that its production decreases with age so that after 35 years there is already a significant decrease.


There is a direct relationship between cellular damage that occurs with age and melatonin levels, due to the following properties:

ANTIOXIDANT: Melatonin is a potent antioxidant that, in addition to purifying free radicals, enhances the endogenous antioxidant system by increasing both the activity and the expression of antioxidant enzymes. Therefore, it protects against environmental pollution and damage caused by ionizing radiation such as UV and sun.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Melatonin is a potent anti-inflammatory. Therefore, it reduces the inflammatory response that occurs in the skin during aging.

CELLULAR PROTECTOR: Melatonin reaches all cellular compartments due to its physicochemical properties. Therefore, melatonin reaches the cell membrane, the cytosol, the nucleus and the mitochondria.

Melatonin stimulates mitochondrial function, not only by increasing the synthesis of ATP, but also by stimulating mitochondrial efficiency, so that the cell produces more energy with less production of free radicals.

An increase in energy is related to an increase in protein synthesis and an increase in blood risk by increasing the supply of nutrients. Therefore, melatonin as a consequence of all these actions regenerates the skin.
