Early melatonin supplementation alleviates oxidative stress in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease
Yet another wonderful article delineating the importance of the role of oxidative stress in the onset of Alzheimer’s. This mouse study found melatonin to be very protective, but mainly when giving early. The problem with that approach in humans is that most clinicians have not embraced the oxidative stress/mitochondrial dysfunction model of AD and probably won’t for several decades.
That means that, despite knowing that melatonin may help prevent AD in the children of AD patients, they won’t get the news until it is too late. Let’s just hope the info gets out in time for THEIR children to protect themselves.
