Liquid Melatonin

Liquid Melatonin

What is the right dosage for Kids and Toddlers and where can you buy it?

Liquid Melatonin is a substitute if you do not want to swallow tablets. They have an instant effect on the brain because it is quickly absorbed into the blood stream.

You can get melatonin supplements over the counter in liquid, tablet and sublingual forms. I prefer theliquid form because it is easier to ingest. Some days I am just not inthe mood to swallow pills and the liquid form gives me this soothingeffect. Am sure most people will agree with this, though choice differs.It comes in 1mg dosage and I take 4 drops 1 hour before I hit my bed.

I have had questions from some of my readers on the side effects of the liquid version of melatonin. First of all let me say that generally it works faster than other forms. Why, you may ask?

Unlikethe other forms, the it is absorbed by the mucosa of the mouth andreaches the brain faster. This could take about 3-10 minutes and itsreaction sets in. In tablet form, a melatonin supplement has to be broken down and passes through the blood stream before reaching the brain. This takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

The side effects are the same when you use the tablet or other sublingual forms. Check my page on the side effects of taking melatonin for more on that.

Over dosing on melatonin supplements whether liquid or tablet have the same effects. A recent study showed that liquid melatonincan have a stronger side effect in cases of over dosing. This is due tothe fact that it is quickly assimilated by the body and can causeinstant discomfort. To read more about the Melatonin dosage check here.

It comes in different brands and can be purchased over the counter. You should adhere to good safety practices when using melatonin supplements . Here is my page on melatonin safety.
