Lack of sleep and melatonin can affect:
Our health: melatonin promotes the activity and development of immune cells. In addition, it is capable of neutralizing free radicals, activating certain antioxidant enzymes and inhibiting others with prooxidant action, which is why it is crucial for the prevention of oxidative stress and aging.
