IAS News 28 November 2012 | 0 Comments

Alzheimer’s disease affects many millions of people and finding way that may improve the outlook or help those who are suffering is a big project. By combining melatonin and exercise researchers at Barcelona Biomedical Research Institute (IIBB), in collaboration with the University of Granada and the Autonomous University of Barcelona have found that they have a positive effect on those with Alzheimer’s.
We have known for many years that by combining physical exercise, a healthy diet and not smoking can help with adding years to the healthy lifespan of humans however now the suggestions are by adding melatonin to this combination the effects could be even greater.
The analysis was carried out in mice who were in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, and were showing signs of learning difficulties and anxiety. 4 groups were given exercise, melatonin, or a combination of both, or neither and they were tested over a period of 6 months. The research found that undergoing both melatonin and exercise were almost back to their initial pathological state, with a significant regression in the level of Alzheimer’s.
Studies can’t always be transferred over from animals to humans however several clinical studies have seen improvements in both the physical and mental wellbeing in those suffering from Alzheimer’s when treated with both melatonin and exercise. Until a complete cure can be found a healthy lifestyle, both in terms of exercise and diet is vitally important to those with any long term illnesses, and from the results in the study mentioned here maybe a bit of melatonin could also help.
