The effects of taking melatonin are the same whether you use Liquid Melatonin, Melatonin Tablets or Melatonin Capsules. Liquid melatonin is fast acting and it is absorbed easily by the mucosa of the mouth thus it can reach the brain faster. The effect of melatonin can be seen in about 3 – 10 minutes.
When using the tablet form, the table has to be broken down by the digestive system and then passed through the blood before melatonin reaches the brain. This process takes about 20 – 30 minutes. Another advantage of liquid melatonin is that you can easily add it on food and drinks.
