Melanin Medicine: Nutrition to Increase Melanin Production


MELANIN. I’m sure all you beautiful-, chocolaty-, caramel-skinned ladies have heard the word, at least in passing. We know it has that “something” that gives us our sexy, enviable, often-poorly-imitated skin color. But do you know just how significant it is to our overall health & beauty—specifically the health and beauty of our skin?


Melanin pigment has been found in almost every organism on the planet—spiders being one of the few exceptions. There are several known melanins. The most common in human beings are:


Eumelanin (YOUmelanin)—a brown-black pigment found in the hair and skin. This is the melanin that gives you that majestic, sun-kissed color that compelled Mark Twain to say, “Nearly all black or brown skins are beautiful…The splendid black satin skin of the South African Zulus of Durban seemed to me to come very close to perfection.”
Albinism is primarily a result of a lack of eumelanin.
Pheomelanin—a red-brown pigment found in the hair and skin that is responsible for red hair and freckles.
Neuromelanin—a dark pigment found in deep brain structures. The most melaninated parts of the brain are the substantia nigra, the locus coeruleus, the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve, and the median raphe nucleus of the pons.


It takes a Herculean effort of denial to not notice that, generally speaking, black women look at least ten years younger than white women of the same age. According to Susan C. Taylor, M.D., author of Brown Skin: Dr. Susan Taylor’s Prescription for Flawless Skin, Hair, and Nails, you look so much younger than your white peers (and women of other races) because of your skin’s greater melanin content. The more melanin present in the skin, the more protected you are against the damaging effects of the sun. Via a process called “ultrafast internal conversion,” melanin compounds absorb and convert harmful UV radiation into harmless heat. It has been estimated that 99.9% of the absorbed UV rays are dissipated as heat by this process.


According to Taylor, high levels of melanin in the skin guard against long-term skin damage associated with aging—damage such as:


•Deep wrinkles
•Rough surface texture
•Age spots (liver spots)


Eumelanin has also been shown to exhibit antioxidant activity. This may be another explanation of why melinated women show fewer signs of aging than women of races with less melanin in the skin. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals. Free radicals have long been recognized as being instrumental in skin damage. When explaining melanin’s ability to combat free radical damage, skin biologist Sergio Nacht said, “It affects the delicately designed lips that hold moisture in the stratum corneum. If the skin loses its moisture, it becomes rigid and cracks.” Remember the old adage, “Black don’t crack.”???


According to research published in Free Radical Biology and Medicine, March 1999, “the free radical scavenging properties of melanin may be important in the protection of melanotic cells against free radical damage…”.


As protective as our melanin can be, stress and a diet deficient in minerals can disturb the skins melanin formation. This not only can cause white spots, and possibly vitiligo, it can also lead to diminished protection that we enjoy as melanated women.

Since melanin pigments are derived from the amino acid tyrosine, it is important is important to consume healthy foods that are rich in this nutrient to maintain and increase melanin production. Some good sources of tyrosine are:


•Sea vegetables (kelp and dulse)
•Raw, unpasteurized almonds (and the mylk made thereof) and almond butter
•Raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas) and pumpkin seed butter
•Raw sesame seeds (and the mylk made thereof) and tahini(sesame seed butter)
•Sprouted quinoa


Though the aforementioned foods are some of my favorite skin beautifying, melanin nutrients,  the  absolute favorite superfood for nourishing  majestic melanin is the king of medicinal mushrooms—CHAGA (Inonotus obliquus).


CHAGAa is a mushroom that grows primarily in living birch trees. rarely will they grow in alder, ash, beech, elm, ironwood, and maple trees. Of all mushrooms—and herbs—Chaga probably has the most healing medicinal properties of them all. Some of chaga’s well-researched benefits to human health are:


•Analgesic (removes pain)
•Anodyne (soothes pain)
•Anticancer (bone, brain, breast, carcinoma, cervical, colon, hepatoma, leukemia, liver, lung, medulloblastoma, MELANOMA, neuroblastoma, ovarian, sarcoma, squamous cell cancers of the head and neck, stomach, uterine)
•Antiviral (flu, herpes, HIV)
•Blood purifier
•Improves circulation
•Induces apoptosis (spontaneous breakdown of cancer cells)
•Intestinal protection (against colitis, gastritis, etc.)
•Liver detoxification


Chaga’s antioxidant content is second only to raw cacao powder (raw chocolate). Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms that are the primary culprits in damage to the skin and DNA. Antioxidants safely interact with and neutralize the damaging effects of these free radicals. Chaga’s superior antioxidant content places it near the top of the list (right behind raw cacao) of skin-protection, energy restoring superfoods).


The CHAGA mushroom contains high amounts of a type of non-sweet, bitter sugar called beta glucans. These compounds have been shown to work wonders for the skin. One study reported that after eight weeks of topical application of beta glucans, there was a forty seven percent improvement in lines and wrinkles, a sixty percent improvement in firmness and elasticity of the skin, and a twenty six percent improvement in skin color.


The beta glucans from the CHAGA mushroom—whether applied topically or taken internally—have also been shown to protect the skin from burns.It has been suggested that it is Chaga’s high amounts of beta glucans, along with its high amounts of melanin that makes it such a potent fighter of skin cancers, along with other skin diseases.


In his book Cancer Ward, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn tells his story of beating cancer with a combination of CHAGA and radiation therapy. David Wolfe suggests that this is likely due to Chaga’s high melanin content,. Chaga’s melanin content is higher than any food or herb known. David Wolfe says, “melanin has the propensity to bind radioactive isotopes into less toxic or even nontoxic forms.”


CHAGA is the best nutritional source of melanin, as the pigments contained within this mushroom are similar to those found in the human body. The melanin contained within the Chaga mushroom shows high antioxidant activity. Chaga’s melanin also protects against DNA damage.I highly suggest adding CHAGA to your beauty regimen. CHAGA is highly concentrated powerhouse fuel needed to feed melanin and maintain levels thereby enhancing rejuvenation of your temple.
