Melatonin reduced weight and improved blood fats

In a lab study, young, overweight rats consumed a diet including an experimental mega-dose of melatonin, or no melatonin. After six weeks, the melatonin group had gained less weight than the non-melatonin group. The melatonin group also saw triglycerides decrease 27 percent, LDL cholesterol decrease 20 percent, and HDL—the good cholesterol—increase 26 percent.
