Many people are familiar with the benefits of melatonin when it comes to sleep. However, research shows that the hormone may have much more to offer.

While its primary function is to help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm, research has shown other benefits, such as strengthening the immune system, improving bone density, potentially helping to prevent the development of certain types of cancers, and benefiting those with autoimmune conditions.

Today, I’m sharing the critical insights anyone with Graves' disease or Hashimoto's needs to know about melatonin, including how it impacts thyroid health and what recent research says, particularly about those with autoimmune thyroid conditions.

In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Melatonin’s role in regulating the body’s circadian rhythm
- How melatonin impacts multiple aspects of your overall health
- Potential causes of low melatonin levels
- Precursors of melatonin
- Testing for melatonin deficiency
- The connection between melatonin and thyroid hormone production
- Potential benefits of melatonin for people with autoimmune conditions
- What recent journal articles show about the effects of melatonin on immune function
- My recommendations for melatonin for those with thyroid conditions


As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
