It’s a common misconception that the amount of sleep you need decreases as you age. According to the CDC, adults need seven or more hours of sleep a day to maintain optimal health and wellbeing. Getting less than seven hours of sleep per 24 hours can be linked to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, stroke, and mental distress.
So why does sleep become an issue as we age? It could be from a lack of melatonin. Melatonin is the hormone in our bodies that tells us when it’s time to sleep. Unfortunately, natural melatonin production decreases with age. On top of that, other things can effect natural melatonin levels, including beta blockers.
You or someone you know may take melatonin supplements. Even though there is a great deal of research to support the efficacy of melatonin supplements for sleep issues, not everyone experiences successful results. As with taking any supplement, this could be due to poor absorption of the supplement into the bloodstream.
If you want to be sure you’re not wasting your melatonin and that as much of it as possible is successfully making it to your bloodstream, you can’t go wrong with Puffin Health Liposomal Melatonin.
A Quick Review of Melatonin
- Melatonin is a hormone produced naturally in the body.
- Its main job is to maintain circadian rhythms (the body’s day/night clock). In the evening, the lack of light triggers the pineal gland to release melatonin, telling us to go to sleep and stay asleep. During the day, it suppresses the melatonin hormone.
- Melatonin supplements are usually produced in a lab.
- Side effects of melatonin supplements are uncommon, but melatonin can interact with other drugs.
- According to The Mayo Clinic, with a melatonin supplement, you are not likely to become dependent, have diminished response with continual use, or experience hangover effects.
- For the most part, melatonin is used for sleep issues but is also being studied for its therapeutic benefits for eye health, as an antioxidant, its ability to help with ulcers and heartburn, and for relief from tinnitus.

What is Liposomal Melatonin from Puffin Health
So what is a liposome? Think of it is as nature’s delivery package. A liposome is a bubble-shaped structure made of fats (or phospholipids) that protects a supplement from the harsh environment of the digestive system.
The phospholipid shell is able to bind with other lipid cell membranes to safely deliver drugs, nutrients, or DNA material to intracellular environments and allow them to be absorbed into the bloodstream and to be most effective for the body.
Therefore, liposomal melatonin is a melatonin supplement wrapped in liposomes. Puffin Health liposomes are lab-grade, and the melatonin is strategically placed into a liposome especially created for it. Because it’s protected from the stomach and intestines, a greater portion of the melatonin you take is made available to the body than if you took regular supplements.
It’s All About the Bioavailability (How Much You Actually Absorb)
Most supplements are vaporized by powerful acids in the stomach. And whatever is not absorbed simply goes right through you. This is why supplements often cause upset stomach.
Paying for supplements that do not effectively absorb into your system or that may mostly run right through your system and potentially cause a stomachache is a waste of time and money.
Melatonin is thought to have other possible therapeutic effects, including for eye health, ulcers, tinnitus. One study finding evidence that melatonin could serve as an anti-aging compound for skin, revealed concerns that melatonin taken orally would not absorb enough into the blood to have an effect.
Puffin Health Liposomal Melatonin solves the problem of poor absorption to benefit your health and your pocketbook.
Puffin Health Liposomal Melatonin Can Be Used for:
- Trouble falling asleep
- Jet lag
- Shift work disorder
- Sleep-wake cycle disturbances
- Circadian rhythm sleep disorders in the blind
Not All Liposomal Products Are Created Equal
Puffin Health has third-party studies to prove the higher absorption rate of its liposomes. In 2012, the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University began comparing “normal” Vitamin C to Dr. Blair’s liposomal Vitamin C. Thus far, their findings prove that the liposomal Vitamin C shows up in an “appreciably greater concentration” in the blood.
Puffin Health Liposomal Melatonin gets their lipids (the building blocks of liposomes) from the finest natural, non-GMO sunflowers. Their liposome manufacturing process does not use heat or pressure, which can damage or alter the lipid structure.
Furthermore, Puffin Health Liposomes are manufactured in a cGMP (certified good manufacturing practices) lab.
