Quicksilver Scientific Melatonin uses the power of liposomal encapsulation to bring you a highly bioavailable melatonin supplement that you can keep on hand wherever you go. Fall asleep faster and wake up feeling more refreshed with melatonin, as better sleep quality can help relieve morning drowsiness.
Overusing electronic devices keeps the brain stimulated for hours after it’s time to wind down for the day. A healthy melatonin rhythm allows the hormone to rise in the evening and night for better sleep. And once the sun is up, it rapidly drops as a response to sufficient sleep. This eventually becomes a habit as your sleep-wake cycles operate on a 24-hour circadian rhythm.
Some people have their circadian rhythms shifted later, making it difficult in the morning, and leading to a feeling of being unrested and lacking “enough” sleep. Other people sleep less due to long-term stressors that are known to reduce sleep time in many people. Less sleep increases stress levels because your emotional regulation and cognitive performances are impaired. Poor sleep even makes it easier to develop a cold, flu, or other infections.
Melatonin can relieve tension headaches and migraines in some people. In one study, using melatonin as a preventive supplement cut the frequency of migraines in half, and tension headaches by two-thirds. Some people, unfortunately, see their headaches or migraines worsen with melatonin supplementation, so start low and go slow if you experience either.
The Long-Term Benefits Of A Good Night’s Sleep
Sleeping well doesn’t just help you feel better and catch fewer colds; it can protect your brain health too. Deep sleep activates your brain’s internal cleansing processes, which washes out harmful metabolic waste products. These waste products include the infamous amyloid-beta that accumulates in Alzheimer’s disease and damages the brain. People with subjective or mild cognitive impairment–the precursors to Alzheimer’s disease–don’t sleep as well, making their condition worse.
Deep sleep also allows for the neurons to activate the process of autophagy. Autophagy (“self-eating”) is a process where old cellular components are broken down and recycled to make way for new ones. At the same time, the development of new neurons picks up, and so does the level of growth hormone. We actually produce new neurons throughout our lives to assist in everyday repair and learning, but poor sleep is one factor that impairs this.
Why Quicksilver Scientific Melatonin?
Quicksilver Scientific Melatonin is a convenient, fast-acting melatonin supplement that packs 150 doses into one 30mL bottle.
Liposomal encapsulation stores the melatonin in microscopic spheres of fatty acids that mimic those in our cell membranes. This allows for rapid absorption when you need it the most. A wide range of supplements that usually have poor bioavailability makes use of liposomes, as they bypass the standard processes of digestion and absorption.
The addition of mixed vitamin E provides antioxidant protection to your melatonin, so you can use the entire bottle without needing to worry about wastage.
Suggested Use: Take 1 pump orally, and then hold it in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. You can stir it into water if you prefer. Do not refrigerate; instead, store at room temperature in a dark place. Use within 180 days of opening.
Why We Love It:
- Offers enhanced absorption and nearly instantaneous effect of melatonin
- Reduce morning drowsiness
