Human growth hormone and good sleep are intimately related. Growth hormone regulates sleep, and restful sleep is critical for HGH production.
If you are not getting enough sleep, you are negatively impacting your health in many ways. Poor sleep can leave you tired, of course. But, inadequate sleep decreases your immune system, impacts focus and cognition, and it lowers your level of Human Growth Hormone, or HGH.
That last one can be very significant. HGH is responsible for the growth and renewal of every cell in your body. HGH helps us grow from childhood to adults, but it also plays a vital role in adulthood.
HGH production slows down as you get older. The greatest amount of HGH is produced and secreted while you sleep, particularly when you are in REM, or “deep sleep.”
Due to stress, lower hormone levels, and various other reasons, adults between the ages of 35 and 55 are those most likely to suffer from sleep deprivation. These are also the ages when your HGH is most needed to keep you young and strong, but HGH is already starting to decline. Poor sleep in men and women over 35 can be a double whammy of causing you to lose more HGH, just when your body needs it most!
Growth hormone also helps to regulate good sleep, so declining levels can lead to disturbed sleep, and sleep disturbances cause less HGH to be produced. It becomes kind of a vicious cycle.
Ways to Improve Sleep
There are ways you can try to improve sleep without the use of over the counter drugs, or prescription sleep aids.
- Try setting a more regular routine. Go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time each day, even on the weekends
- If you know that you’re getting up frequently at night, or are a loud snorer, have yourself checked for sleep apnea
- Do not eat for at least an hour before bedtime
- Make your bedroom as conducive to sleep as possible. Quiet, dark, and cold is the best environment for a good night’s sleep
- Avoid over stimulation of “screens” – TV, computers, tablets, or phones – just prior to sleeping
The Many Health Benefits of Growth Hormone Therapy
Getting more sleep may help you to raise your HGH levels. But, it may not be enough. If you are getting adequate sleep, and yet are feeling tired, sluggish, and moody throughout the day, you may suffering from adult growth hormone deficiency.
If you do have low HGH, you may benefit from growth hormone therapy. In fact, if you are feeling tired, depressed, weak or worn out, and are over 35, HGH therapy may be exactly the boost you need!
For many years, explorers and scientists alike have looked for the Fountain of Youth. HGH may be what they have been searching for! Forget the myths and misconceptions you may have heard about growth hormone being a “performance enhancing drug.” Thousands of men and women are literally “turning back the clock” through the new science of Growth Hormone Therapy!
HGH is a hormone produced and secreted into the blood stream by the pituitary gland. HGH stimulates the growth and repair of cells. HGH levels are highest during childhood and adolescence, as it is needed to make bones and muscles grow and mature.
Growth hormone levels start to drop significantly in your 20s, but it still plays a role in:
- Boosting your metabolism
- The growth and repair of cells and tissues
- The production of other proteins and essential amino acids
- Maintaining a healthy weight and burning fat
- Building lean muscle and maintaining strong bones
But, the only way to know if you are a candidate to reap the many benefits of HGH is to have your levels checked. Why not contact us today, and put yourself on a path to a younger, stronger, healthier YOU!
