Our clever combination of liposomal CBD and Melatonin, safely and effectively contributes to a faster sleep initiation
Health benefits liposomal CBD & Melatonin
Our liposomal supplement that addresses anxiety and sleep quality features a clever combination of CBD and Melatonin which ensures maximal absorption of CBD as a result of our proprietary formulation process and liposome technology.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the several natural active ingredients of the Cannabis plant. It differs from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in that it lacks the well-known psychoactive effects .
Why is Melatonin added?
Melatonin is a naturally produced hormone that helps maintain normal sleep patterns. Supplementation of melatonin safely and effectively contributes to a faster sleep initiation. In addition, melatonin therapy can help alleviate the symptoms of a jet lag, as people using melatonin report better self-recorded mood ratings and sleep parameters .
Limitations of current CBD and Melatonin products
CBD is completely insoluble in water, poorly dissolves in alcohol and only dissolves well in oil. To be optimally absorbed in the intestines, CBD must be presented as individual molecules to the intestinal epithelial cells responsible for uptake of nutrients. In theory products with oily solutions could achieve this, but in practice the break up of an oil by the intestinal fluid and the process of dispersing it into tiny droplets ready for absorption is not straightforward and there are reports of poor bioavailability and high variability in uptake of CBD from oil products . Although melatonin is more soluble  the bioavailability of oral melatonin is still relatively low. This is due to high first-pass clearance in the liver and low absorption in the gastrointestinal tract [5, 6]. Thus, there is a clear need for a product that leads to improved absorption of both active ingredients combined.
Our liposomal CBD & Melatonin supplement makes improved absorption in the gut possible. Liposomes are small, carefully designed phospholipid vesicles that form very stable dispersions in water . The phospholipids constitute a bilayer structure in which the CBD and melatonin molecules can be safely kept dissolved, protecting them from degradative enzymes . In addition, liposomes are more easily absorbed by intestinal epithelial cells compared to non-carrier formulations [9, 10].
What is more, the liposomal supplements that are engineered by LIPOSOMA contain specific additives based on Vitamin E in the bilayer that further increase liposome stability and help protect its vulnerable contents against oxidation as well as attack of gastric fluids and enzymes. This ensures maximal efficiency in body uptake and therapeutic benefit.
