Melatonin and Melanin
Melanin – ‘Pro-Creating for Natural Protection’
Melanin original word – melas, “black” it is a natural pigment found in most organisms. The most common biological melanin is eumelanin. The Brown colour seen in hair, skin and the iris of the eyes is what we commonly call melanin although it is also found within the body. This is a brown-black polymer of dihydroxyindole carboxylic acids and their reduced forms. Another common form of melanin is pheomelanin, a cysteine-containing red-brown polymer of benzothiazine units largely responsible for red hair and freckles.
The production of melanin in human skin is called melanogenesis. Production of melanin is induced by UVB-radiation simulated by DNA, which is also a photoprotectant. This occurs by means of a process called “ultrafast internal conversion”. This property enables melanin to dissipate more than 99.9% of the absorbed UV radiation as heat. This prevents the UVB radiation…
