Let’s talk about melatonin a little bit today.
Most people know it helps with sleep….. but you never want to take it, except maybe if you are flying through time zones.
Melatonin is made from trytophan, which is one of our 4 aromatic amino acids–think of them as sunlight helpers
Serotonin is also made from tryptophan in our gut and its in our gut where the most melatonin is made.
Your gut is your backup system to keep your mitochondria healthy.
So what your body is actually doing in that early AM sun is the sunlight is ‘grabbed’ and activated in our Red blood cells. The RBCs collect the light and circulate (how’s your circulatory system?) it to rest of body. When it gets to gut it is pulling seratonin in from the gut tissues into your blood stream to be activated by sunlight. Needs to be activated first, otherwise nothing happens. And that serotonin eventually ‘turns’ into melatonin.
The quantum body….Amazing!
