Melatonin Powder for Alzheimer’s Disease Patients
- Jun 18, 2019 -

Melatonin powder could improve the sleep quality and ease the sundowning of Alzheimer’s disease patients.
There are almost 44 million people in the world have Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or related dementia, according to a statistic date from Alzheimer’s Disease International in 2017. About 45% of the AD patients have sleep problem and sundown syndrome.

Melatonin Powder for Alzheimer's Disease Patients

A extremely low level of melatonin could be the reason that the AD patients have trouble to sleep well. Melatonin is a very important hormone in the body and particularly critical in sleep regulation. The melatonin levels will naturally decrease with age. As we know, the common age of AD patients is over 65. What’s more, the people with Alzheimer’s disease have especially low levels in comparison with the people of the same age who don’t have this disease. When those two factors combine together, no wonder they couldn’t sleep well. One solution is to take melatonin powder to compensate for the low level of melatonin.
While many AD patients exhibit the symptoms of sundowning (e.g. increased confusion, anxiety and agitation) in the late afternoon and evening, the reason for this syndrome remain unclear. But luckily, researches showed that melatonin powder could also help with sundowning.
Although you can buy melatonin power without a prescription in drugstores, but we recommend you to ask your doctor first before using.
