Pineal Gland Hormones

The pineal gland is a biological clock and photo-receptor located deep inside the brain. It contains endocrine, neural and retinal (eye) tissue. It senses light through the eyes and adjusts the body to the environment.

  • Melatonin (the nighttime hormone) is made from serotonin, and relates to sleep, dreams, brain wave activity, and meditative states. In animals, it controls hibernation and migration.
  • Epithalamin (the daytime hormone) influences the timing of biological cycles, including puberty and menopause, and regulates the aging process for longer life and fewer signs of aging.
