You know melatonin as the sleep hormone but it does so very much more than that. In this episode I’ll cover the many actions of melatonin because it’s a very interesting hormone and antioxidant. While it’s so powerful and has clear benefits and a great safety profile, should everyone run out and grab a bottle?.
I will get into dosing, side effects, who should avoid it and how to consider whether something that seems to be good for everything (such as melatonin) will be beneficial for you. As well, I will give you plenty of lifestyle considerations to boost your own production of melatonin.

We all know the downsides of alcohol, but it is still something many decide to enjoy on occasion. Most of us also notice that especially as we get into our 40s and beyond that one glass of wine feels like way more than a glass the next day. If you choose to indulge, one dose of ZBiotics before drinking any alcohol can make you feel way less yucky the next day! Cool…but how? The yuck the day after having alcohol is due to a buildup of acetaldehyde (a byproduct of alcohol metabolism). ZBiotics is a probiotic formula that helps you break down acetaldehyde in the gut so you can have a great workout and a great day even after a drink the night before.
