    In this insightful episode of The Midlife Makeover Show, host Wendy Valentine delves into the world of melatonin with Dr. Deanna Minich, a seasoned nutrition scientist and author. As many of our listeners navigate the choppy waters of perimenopause and menopause, understanding the role of melatonin becomes increasingly important for maintaining healthy sleep patterns and overall well-being.
     
    Dr. Minich enlightens us on melatonin's multifaceted functions beyond sleep regulation, including its antioxidant properties, immune system support, and how it acts as a "molecule of consciousness" connecting us to nature. We discuss how our bodies produce melatonin, the impact of stress and aging on its levels, and the importance of this hormone in various life stages, especially during midlife transitions.
     
    Join us as we uncover the truth about synthetic versus plant-based melatonin, the safety of supplementation, and practical tips for managing jet lag with melatonin protocols. Dr. Minich also shares fascinating insights into how melatonin levels fluctuate with the lunar cycle and the potential benefits of plant melatonin, available through Symphony Natural Health.
     
    Whether you're struggling with sleep disturbances, seeking to enhance your immune function, or simply curious about the broader implications of melatonin in midlife, this episode is a treasure trove of knowledge. Tune in and discover how to harness the power of melatonin to support your journey through midlife and beyond.

This episode is an invitation to rediscover the joy of being in your own skin, to rewrite your narrative, and to experience the profound impact of self-love on your overall well-being.
