Title (EN) METHODS FOR REDUCING NEURODEGENERATION
(FR) PROCÉDÉS POUR LA RÉDUCTION DE LA NEURODÉGÉNÉRESCENCE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides methods for reducing neurodegeneration in animals by administering a neurodegeneration reducing amount of melatonin to the animal. Generally, the melatonin is administered in amounts of either 0.1 ng/kg/day to about 10 mg/kg/day or from about 0.2 ng/day to about 3 g/day. In preferred methods, the melatonin is administered as part of a food composition.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés pour la réduction de la neurodégénérescence chez des animaux en administrant une quantité de mélatonine réduisant la neurodégénérescence à l'animal. Généralement, la mélatonine est administrée dans des quantités soit de 0,1 ng/kg/jour à environ 10 mg/kg/jour soit d'environ 0,2 ng/jour à environ 3 g/jour. Dans les procédés préférés, la mélatonine est administrée en tant que partie d'une composition alimentaire.
