What is Melatonin?
Melatonin is a hormone involved in many of the body’s functions, but it is especially important for the sleep-wake cycle. The body’s daily rhythm influences the sleep-wake cycle and this determines the amount of melatonin produced. Melatonin levels naturally increase in the late afternoon and drop in the morning, helping you to develop a healthy and habitual sleep pattern. However, blue light from electronic devices disrupts the biosynthesis of melatonin, making a bad night’s sleep an increasingly common complaint in recent years. Taking melatonin supplements can support a longer and more restful sleep, even if the person is stressed or exposed to blue light. Nordic CBD therefore uses melatonin to shorten the sleep-latency period, allowing for the faster onset of sleep.
The sleep cycle and the consequences of sleep disorders
Healthy sleep is one of the most important processes for the regeneration of both the body and the mind. When you sleep, you alternate between periods of light and deep sleep, so the frequency of brain activity also varies. During this time, the brain stores and processes what it experienced during the day and a growth hormone is secreted to reconstruct damaged tissue. These important processes occur mainly during the first two deep sleep phases, called core sleep.
The consequences of irregular sleep or too little are numerous: the immune system is weakened, the physical and mental responsiveness diminishes and memory is worsened. The long-term consequences of sleep deprivation include hypertension and the associated increased risk of strokes, diabetes and heart attacks. Depression, stress and loss of libido are also often directly related to sleep disorders.
Sleep disorders can have many different causes; physical, emotional or mental stress all lead to central nervous tension. Nervous excitement can keep our minds racing, chronic pain (typically more intense in the evenings) intensifies and late night screen time delays the body's own melatonin production and thus the onset of core sleep.
Melatonin has a sleep-inducing effect; it is also referred to as the sleep hormone. An increasing concentration of this hormone in the blood initiates the resting phase in the body. The decreasing light intensity of the evening causes an increase in melatonin production. If the action of light is artificially prolonged, this also inhibits the production of melatonin. We feel this effect when we work long hours in front of a screen in the evening. Shift work or air travel over several time zones lead to the jetlag, i.e. the effect of delayed melatonin production.
What does "liposomal" mean?
Our Mani Drops use a liposomal formula. Liposomes (small capsular structures) are a safer and faster way of delivering the product to the body than many other traditional methods. The ingredients are contained within the nucleus of the liposomes as liquids, making them readily available for direct cell uptake. Effective liposomes protect against digestive enzymes and ensure that the valuable substances of our supplement reach the parts of the body they are supposed to. Studies suggest that bioavailability of active ingredients is three times higher for liposomal formulations than oils.
