Is Melatonin Safe?
Safe is subjective, hence nothing is Safe incendar.com - sources, studies, lab results BELOW
If concerned, Ask your Doctor or Healthcare Provider.
What is not safe is to expect to stare at blue light ALL day
and NOT experience serious Health problems: Restless legs, Sleep problems, Changes in mood,
Menopause symptoms, Symptoms of Low Thyroid Hormone, Intestinal Symptoms, Increased aging process ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION, vision problems, eventual loss of vision (blindness), loss of attractiveness to opposite sex
due to hormonal imbalance (i.e. incel). (Melatonin Deficiency)
Melatonin is a Hormone your body produces when NOT exposed to BLUE LIGHT
Removal of Blue Light signals your body to prepare to sleep.
Blue Light exposure sources include The Sun, PC Monitors, tablets, phones, or LED lighting.
What is a Lethal Dose of Melatonin?
Every single medicine, including this one also, has its own LD 50. In other words, this is the lethal dose which
suggests that this is an amount of which at least 50% of the experimental animals (rat or mouse) would die of
exposure. Melatonin is known to be relatively safe, and you wouldn’t be exposed to a tremendous risk even if
you dosed 100 times higher than the recommended as even that didn’t seem to be enough to kill a single mouse. Source LD50
One Million Deaths Every Year
The most deadly animal in the world is the mosquito. It might seem impossible that
something so miniscule can kill so many people, but it's true. According to the World
Health Organization, mosquito bites result in the deaths of more than 1 million people yearly. Source WHO
Compared to verifiable Melatonin Overdose deaths of 0 (zero) per year.

Toxicology and Potential for Harm
The acute toxicity of melatonin as seen in both animal and human studies is extremely low.
Melatonin may cause minor adverse effects, such as headache, insomnia, rash, upset stomach,
and nightmares. In animals, an LD50 (lethal dose for 50% of the subjects) could not be established.
Even 800 mg/kg bodyweight (high dose) was not lethal. Studies of human subjects given varying
doses of melatonin (1-6.6 g/day) for 30-45 days, and followed with an elaborate battery of biochemical
tests to detect potential toxicity, have concluded that, aside from drowsiness, all findings were normal
at the end of the test period.[139,140]
Animal studies suggest that melatonin can downregulate the pituitary/gonadal axis resulting in hypogonadism
and/or delayed puberty. However chronic administration of low-dose melatonin in men did not alter blood levels
of testosterone or luteinizing hormone. One case of extremely high melatonin levels associated with delayed
puberty and hypogonadism has been reported. Pubertal development and resolution of the hypogonadism occurred
spontaneously as melatonin levels declined over several years. Recent experimental evidence demonstrates that melatonin
reduces sperm motility and that long-term administration inhibits testicular aromatase levels.
Melatonin has also been suggested for use as a contraceptive for women, which might raise the question of whether
melatonin damages the female reproductive system. Notably, no side effects were reported in a report of a phase 2 clinical
trial in which 1400 women were treated with 75 mg of melatonin nightly for 4 years. Toxicology and Potential for Harm
Melatonin for children with ADHD and insomnia:
Many children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
have problems falling asleep and staying asleep. A review of four studies of such children found that melatonin
often helped them fall asleep faster and sleep longer. poison.org
Symptoms of melatonin overdose
Too much melatonin can have the opposite effect of its intended purpose.
It can make it harder to sleep because your normal circadian rhythms will
be disrupted. An overdose can leave you feeling groggy and sleepy during
the day and give you nightmares or extremely vivid dreams at night.
You may also experience:
irritability or anxiety
For some people, too much melatonin can affect their blood pressure.
Blood pressure-lowering medications, such as calcium channel blockers and
beta-blockers, may reduce your body’s natural production of melatonin.
However, taking a supplement to make up for lower production may not always
be advisable. Be sure to talk with your doctor about melatonin and any other
supplements you take if you’ve been prescribed medications to help control your blood pressure. healthline.com
Can Melatonin cause an erection?
Melatonin may cause an erection, since you trashed your body and caused a hormone imbalance with blue light.
Low serum melatonin levels are associated with erectile dysfunction.

Melatonin is a hormone secreted from the pineal gland and has anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects. Oxidative stress is
considered as an important factor in the etiology of erectile dysfunction (ED), and in many experimental models, positive results
have been obtained with melatonin treatment. This study aimed to measure serum melatonin levels in ED patients and to investigate
the possible relationship between ED and melatonin levels. Low serum melatonin levels are associated with erectile dysfunction.
Symptoms Of Melatonin Deficiency
Symptoms of melatonin deficiency are similar to symptoms of several other conditions.
Some of the symptoms of melatonin deficiency are:
Restless legs – “Epidemic” is one word I would use to describe this medical issue
that took so long to convince the medical community that it actually exists.
Tense muscles at night and restless legs can be a sign of melatonin deficiency.
Sleep problems – If you suffer from insomnia, wake up easily in the middle of
the night or have trouble falling asleep, if you don’t have many dreams while
sleeping, have a superficial or anxious sleep and anxious thinking at night
– these are cardinal signs of low melatonin although cortisol levels may also be
to blame. In fact, cortisol and melatonin levels have an inverse relationship
relative to each other in the body.
Changes in mood – If you are someone that lacks inner peace, are always anxious,
suffer from seasonal affective disorder or depression, or are always on the edge
with regards to your emotions and are always irritable – you may have low melatonin.
Menopause symptoms – hot flashes, heart palpitations, morning depression and irregular
cycles are believed to be improved by melatonin supplementation.
Symptoms of Low Thyroid Hormone – Melatonin is instrumental in converting the thyroxine
(T4) to the active triiodothyronine (T3), which gives you energy and generates heat.
In fact, melatonin and thyroid stimulating hormone all originate in the pineal gland.
So symptoms of hypothyroidism may suggest a low level of melatonin.
Intestinal Symptoms – such as pain and hyperactivity and intestinal spasms can also
signify that melatonin is low. People with colitis may benefit from colitis treatment.
Increased aging process – melatonin supplementation has been shown to decrease the aging
process in such tissues as the brain. Because it is a powerful antioxidant, it helps
protect all tissues in the body. rxeconsult
WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
Light is made up of electromagnetic particles that travel in waves.
These waves emit energy, and range in length and strength.
The shorter the wavelength; the higher the energy.
The length of the waves is measured in nanometers (nm),
with 1 nanometer equaling 1 billionth of a meter
Every wavelength is represented by a different colour,
and is grouped into the following categories:
gamma rays, x-rays, ultraviolet (UV) rays, visible light,
infrared light, and radio waves.
Together these wavelengths make up the electromagnetic spectrum.
However the human eye is sensitive to only one part of this spectrum:
visible light. Visible light is that part of the electromagnetic spectrum
that is seen as colours: violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.
Blue light has a very short wavelength, and so produces a higher amount of energy. Studies suggest that, over time, exposure to the blue end of the light spectrum
could cause serious long-term damage to your eyes. WHAT IS BLUE LIGHT?
