We’ve all had those nights where we just can’t seem to get to sleep, right? For some, it can be fixed by simply changing your diet or avoiding certain things before bed like blue light, caffeine, and so on. But what about when your sleeplessness becomes a pattern?
BioPure’s Liposomal Melatonin is a quality and fast-acting supplement to help you cope with the woes of insomnia. As with all BioPure products, it was formulated to the highest standards. It includes ingredients to make the melatonin more absorbable and fast-acting. They use non-GMO sunflower lecithin as opposed to GMO soy lecithin to improve the absorption.
Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone. Your pineal gland makes melatonin in response to dim light. When the sun goes down, less light shines through your eyes and into your pineal gland. In response, your pineal gland starts to slowly release melatonin so that you can sleep. But if you consider your nightly routine, you probably have a lot of artificial lights on in your house after the sun goes down. Even if you turn off your lights, you are probably still looking at your computer, phone or TV, which are loaded with blue light.
All of this unnatural light causes confusion for your pineal gland. When the lights are always one, your pineal gland doesn't know when to release melatonin. We have an epidemic of confused pineal glands, which has led to the plague of insomnia. A balanced “light diet” is just as important as the healthy food you put in your body.
BioPure’s Melatonin is not a traditional tablet or capsule. Many melatonin supplements have to be taken 30-60 minutes before you actually want to go to sleep. So you are out of luck if you if lie down and soon find that you can’t sleep. Even if you take a melatonin supplement then, you will have to wait up to 1 hour before you will reap the benefits of melatonin. BioPure Melatonin is different because it is a concentrated spray that you hold in your mouth for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. This allows the melatonin to absorb in your mouth where it can enter your bloodstream, instead of waiting for it to digest in your stomach and small intestines.
So what are the benefits of taking melatonin as a supplement? Not only can the melatonin supplement replace the melatonin your body can’t keep up production of, but this supplement also has the added benefit of supporting normal sleep patterns. It can also help with brain fatigue and detoxing your brain to help improve your cognitive function.
Sleep is your body’s reset and detox time. In particular, this is when your brain detoxifies using your glymphatic system. If you aren’t getting good quality deep sleep, you are not fully detoxifying your brain.
When looking at regular melatonin and liposomal melatonin supplements, there is a specific difference, mainly in how the supplements are formulated. Liposomal technology is a cutting edge technology in the natural health industry. Liposomes are created by coating the supplement’s molecules (in this case, melatonin) in phospholipids. This makes it easier for your body’s cell membranes to absorb the liposomal melatonin molecules, resulting in greater cellular delivery and increased bioavailability. That means you get more melatonin and in a shorter time period.
Melatonin is more than a “sleep hormone.” Next to glutathione, melatonin is the most powerful antioxidant in your body. It acts as a free radical sponge, helping to suppress oxidation and inflammation. So, while melatonin is usually only thought of for sleeping, it is also vital for overall brain and cognitive health.
Like any supplement, there are some side effects, but there are very few and most of them end up simply being interactions with current conditions. For example, taking too much melatonin could make bleeding worse if you have a bleeding disorder, might make depression worse, can increase the risk of having a seizure, and can even increase blood pressure if you’re already taking blood pressure medications.
Ideally, you have a healthy diet and healthy “light diet,” so that your body is making enough melatonin and making it at night. But when your sleep is less than ideal, or you are suffering from full-fledged insomnia, melatonin can be your answer. BioPure Liposomal Melatonin delivers 4mg per pump. To take, squirt 1 to 2 pumps, sprayed directly into your mouth. Hold the spray there for about 30 to 60 seconds, then swallow.
“Liposomal Melatonin is the best form for taking melatonin. It is better form of delivery, also including Vitamin B6 emulsified with Sunflower Lecithin for a highly absorbable delivery.”
