[The effect of melatonin on bone tissue metabolism].


PMID 25007529

Abstract

In a review of the current literature for the 2000-2013 period, the data of the effect of melatonin on organic and inorganic matrix of bone tissue have been presented. These results suggest that melatonin is an important mediator in the formation of bone tissue. It can prevent the premature destruction of bone and promote its recovery through mechanisms of melatonin-related receptors and receptors of independent action.
