Melatonin is the body’s primary sleep-inducing hormone and a powerful antioxidant with pleiotropic effects on the body. Liposomal melatonin provides melatonin in an advanced delivery system for rapid, efficient absorption and utilization.
Melatonin: Melatonin is well-known for its role in supporting the circadian rhythm and sleep. However, emerging research indicates that it also promotes healthy cognition, gastrointestinal function, and immunity.
Melatonin is produced primarily by the pineal gland of the brain. It regulates the body’s circadian rhythm, an internal set of biological processes in the body that follows a 24-hour cycle and regulates numerous aspects of our behavior and physiology. Many aspects of modern life, including artificial light exposure at night, disrupt melatonin production and thus compromise sleep. Supplemental melatonin may restore healthy rhythm and promote deep, restful sleep.
Supplemental melatonin may also alleviate low mood caused by seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and stimulates brain detoxification via a network of lymphatic vessels in the brain called the glymphatic system. Melatonin may also play a role in healthy GI function and glucose metabolism.
The bioavailability of most oral melatonin supplements is relatively low. Quicksilver Scientific’s liposomal delivery system allows for rapid, complete absorption of melatonin and removes the need for high doses, which can cause a “melatonin hangover” the following morning.
