sleep problems can seriously disrupt a person's life, taking
a heavy toll in both in personal and professional relationships. And
although sleep disorders can be debilitating in and of themselves--over
time they can spur additional health problems by weakening the immune
system and decreasing natural resistance to infection, depression,
cell breakdown, and disease.
The National Institute on Aging has estimated that
over 80% of the aged population experience some type of sleep problem
at one time or another--with insomnia regularly striking one-fourth
of this population.1
Besides insomnia, sleep disorders can also take
specific forms such as late-phase sleep syndrome, restless legs
syndrome, and jet lag. For more information click on link below:
Disorders and Melatonin: Melatonin is known as the body's
"biological clock," for its crucial role in shaping our
physiological responses to the 24-hour cycle.
Disorders and Adrenal Hormones: High levels of cortisol
are associated with stress, restlessness, and the inability to sleep
deeply throughout the night.
Disorders and Amino Acids: The right balance of amino
acids can improve the quality of sleep and decrease the time it
takes to fall asleep at night.
