Sleep

Video Coming Soon!
New research is revealing a link between sleep deprivation and heart disease, cancer, diabetes, immune dysfunction, obesity, and even increased mortality.

Getting enough quality sleep is really one the most important keys to your health.

Sleep is anything but a waste of time. 71% of Americans sleep for less than 8 hours each night, and at a minimum for health, we need 7 to 8 hours. 

Sleep is an active physiological process. When you sleep you:

Erase fine lines on face
Build bone
Removes toxins
Build lean muscle
Mental clarity
Enhance mood
Sustain healthy weight
Eliminate stress
Improve focus
Minimize health risks
Heal tissue
Strengthen immune system

Consequences from lack of sleep include:

Digestive disturbances
Low cognitive function
Emotional upset
Inflammation
Weight gain
Greater hunger

Hormone imbalance, such as low progesterone and high cortisol, can interrupt the sleep cycle. When your body is dealing with prolonged stress it can produce excess cortisol. Cortisol is chemically related to the proper production of important sleep hormones like melatonin and L-tryptophan. When our body is “over making” cortisol it may not be able to make a sufficient amount of the related downstream hormones. 

 

As a naturopath I am always looking at the root cause of why there is an imbalance in the body. When it comes to disrupted sleep, I have seen great results once the adrenal glands are nourished and sported.  

 

Melatonin is your sleep hormone; it plays a huge roll in both sleep and immune function.   When night falls melatonin leaks from your penal gland, your brain becomes flooded with the potent sleep hormone GABA (gamma-aminobutyric) acid and viola you drift off to a-la land. The problem is as that when we get older, our melatonin levels like many other of our hormones begin to decline. Melatonin’s most important role is to enhance production of youthful growth hormones. The ant aging benefits occur with natural secretion as well as with dietary supplementation. 

 

The nutraMetrix is one of the most potent formulas I have seen!

  • One of my biggest health setbacks has been inconsistent sleep. One day on one day off a good nights sleep. Since purchasing the Prime Sleep, I am sleeping through the night, and feel more refreshed in the morning. Can’t believe this product works like a charm.

  • I love this for supporting stress! My MD told me to take it in the evening and once I changed this regimen. I am able to go to bed earlier and get a full and restful sleep!
