Melatonin is a naturally occurring molecule biosynthesized by the pineal gland of vertebrates; it also has been identified in many plants. It is considered an important antioxidant and may retard the development of some neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Previous studies in humans have measured melatonin metabolites in urine and have indicated that melatonin‐containing foods may provide dietary melatonin. This study tested whether the consumption of fruits or fruit juice containing… Expand
Intake of bean sprouts influences melatonin and antioxidant capacity biomarker levels in rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that kidney bean sprouts could be a good source of dietary melatonin and other bioactive compounds known to have health benefits. Expand
Bioavailability of Melatonin from Lentil Sprouts and Its Role in the Plasmatic Antioxidant Status in Rats
TLDR
Investigation of the bioavailability of melatonin from lentil sprouts and its role in plasmatic antioxidant status concluded that their intake could increase melatonin plasmatoxymelatonin concentration and attenuate plasmatics oxidative stress. Expand
Melatonin and its potential biological functions in the fruits of sweet cherry
TLDR
Data shows that PaTDC expression is positively related to the melatonin production in the cherry, which provides additional information to suggest that tryptophan decaboxylase is a rate‐limiting enzyme of melatonin synthesis in plants. Expand
Melatonin identified in meats and other food stuffs: potentially nutritional impact
TLDR
The levels of melatonin measured by HPLC, in lamb, beef, pork, chicken, and fish, are comparable to other food stuffs (in the range of ng/g), but are significantly higher than melatonin concentrations in the blood of vertebrates. Expand
Melatonin intake and potential chronobiological effects on human health
TLDR
This review aimed to identify and present scientific papers that quantified melatonin in foods and evaluated its application in intervention studies and showed that meats, fish, eggs, cereals, tubers, oilseeds, mushrooms, fruits, vegetables and dairy products had some items analyzed for their melatonin concentrations. Expand
Dietary Sources and Bioactivities of Melatonin
TLDR
It has been proved that the melatonin concentration in human serum could significantly increase after the consumption of melatonin containing food, and studies show that melatonin exhibits many bioactivities, such as antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory characteristics, boosting immunity, anticancer activity, cardiovascular protection, pro-diabetic, anti -obese, neuroprotective and anti-aging activity.

Melatonin in Wine and Beer: Beneficial Effects
TLDR
The bioavailability of melatonin and resulting metabolites, the presence ofmelatonin in wine and beer and factors that influence it, and finally the different benefits related to treatment with melatonin are evaluated. Expand
Dietary sources of melatonin and benefits from production of high melatonin pasteurized milk
TLDR
Findings indicated that mulberry leaves and soybean are both good sources of melatonin and free tryptophan and can be applied to prepare high melatonin pasteurized milk. Expand
Plant-derived melatonin from food: a gift of nature.
TLDR
The content of melatonin in plant-derived foods and the factors that influence melatonin levels are summarized to provide new ideas on enhancement and consuming foods containing higher concentrations of tryptophan and melatonin is suggested. Expand
Melatonin in Medicinal and Food Plants: Occurrence, Bioavailability, and Health Potential for Humans
TLDR
Given that dietary melatonin is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and transported into the bloodstream, the ingestion of medicinal and plant foods by mammals as a source of melatonin may be conceived as a key step in serum melatonin modulation and, consequently, health promotion. Expand
