Pineal

Definition of Pineal:

The pineal gland is a pea-sized organ at the center of the brain that is highly sensitive to light.  Until recently, almost nothing was known about this gland.  Darkness signals the pineal gland to release melatonin.  This important hormone has been found to play a role in sexual function and energy levels in general.  It is also a powerful antioxidant protecting the body from age-causing free radicals.
