    I wonder if it's related to increased growth hormone from improved sleep??

    So glad i started taking melatonin for sleep. I was having a murderous time on minocycline with insomnia and the melatonin has just counteracted it.

    Have they looked at the effects of melatonin in people with osteoporosis ? I was just dx with that last year and I've been on melatonin for about 5 years.

    People are so much more complicated than rats in a controlled lab. Although sometimes I feel like a lab rat.

    i use melatonin off and on, i cant really say it helps but i add it to my sleep regime anyway but my thoughts are that im getting its antioxidant effects even if it doesnt help sleep.

    Many of us find melatonin does not help sleep. Yet I agree with @heapsreal, its antioxidant properties may be even more important. If this rat finding works in humans, well its a whole new world for those with serious bone calcium loss, including the long term bed bound.

    peroxynitrate if i remember correctly is the oxidant it helps counteract, the other substance that helps counteract this is b12??

    Lots of things work on peroxynitrite, Marty Pall has a list of them in his book and probably his website. Many antioxidants do this, but with varying effectiveness.

    Hydroxocobalamin for example is a peroxynitrite scavenger. However its thought under some theories that adenosyl cobalamin can inhibit production of peroxynitrite from nitric oxide synthase activity.
