Researchers have been looking into ways to reduce oxidative stress in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).  The sleep hormone melatonin is an antioxidant that can support brain health.

A new study had subjects with MS have their oxidative stress levels assessed and were age-matched with a control group.  They were then supplemented with 10mg of melatonin for 30 days.

Results showed that melatonin increased levels of endogenous antioxidants and reduced oxidative stress.
