HGH: A Possible Cure for Sleep Disorders?

HGH: A Possible Cure for Sleep Disorders?

   We all know how important it is to get a good night's sleep. But for a lot of people this may be easier said than done.  Studies from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke show that over 40 million Americans struggle with chronic sleep disorders, and an extra 20 million admit to consistently having trouble sleeping.

    HGH, also known as human growth hormone, is produced naturally by the pituitary gland. Its primary function through childhood is to promote growth. In adulthood, its function then shifts to help maintain tissues and organs in the body. After puberty or in early adulthood growth hormone reaches its peak and then slowly declines with age. As a result of this decrease of HGH production by the pituitary gland, many changes take place within the body over time.   A common change that many aging adults experience are sleep related. Could there be a correlation between sleep and HGH decline? There is a good bit of evidence supporting this thought. Sleep patterns do change for most people with age. Older individuals often find it harder to fall asleep, and when they do, they often don't have as restful of sleep as a younger person usually does. They also tend to struggle frequently with insomnia more often and tend to wake very easily while finding that it takes a lot more sleep to feel as rested as they did for just a small amount of time in their younger years. The older individual also may rest more often during the day, which only contributes to nighttime sleep difficulty.

There have been a few studies that point to HGH and sleep and how they are connected. One of the most well known studies was published as an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association on August 16, 2000. This study focused entirely on the link between the lack of HGH and sleep disorders. The study was led by Professor Eve Van Cauter from the University of Chicago and consisted of a group of 149 men between the ages of 16 and 83.   With the understanding that HGH production is nocturnal and occurs at night during sleep, the study revealed the highest HGH levels in the younger men. The older subjects, most of who were 45 and older, found difficulty falling back into deep, restful sleep upon awakening. It was noted that sleep declined over 27 percent with each decade of age. And in subjects over 50, growth hormone production decreased by an astounding 75 percent.

The University of Chicago confirmed that there is a link between HGH and sleep.   HGH decreases with less sleep. And less sleep increases with age while HGH levels decline. Other studies have proven that patients, who increase their HGH levels through synthetic HGH injections and amino acid enhancers, such as Semorelin, sleep much better at night and feel younger and more energized.

Human growth hormone can be given as a daily injection to increase levels in the body that have decreased with time. Many individuals, who have higher levels of growth hormone, report that they feel more energized and don't struggle with as many age-related problems that they once did such as metabolism decrease, loss of libido, and loss of bone and muscle mass, just to name a few. Sermorelin, a peptide, can also be given to increase HGH levels by stimulating the pituitary gland to produce more HGH. Human growth hormone supplementation should be started only via prescription and after evaluation by a licensed physician. To get started, or for more information on HGH or Sermorelin, and how it may benefit you, give Nu Image Medical a call at 888-520-3438. Both Sermorelin and HGH increase growth hormone levels and as a result may not only help patient's look and feel younger but also may help improve the amount and quality of sleep for many individuals.
