Frequently in the news for its performance enhancing capabilities in the world of sports, human growth hormone (HGH) may also be the key to a good night’s sleep. Experts attending this week’s SLEEP 2014 conference talked about HGH’s slumber-inducing properties thanks largely to a study published in Psychoneuroendocrinology, which revealed a connection between impaired HGH levels and sleep fragmentation.
The research team behind SeroVital®-hgh, an oral growth hormone booster clinically validated to increase mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels by 682%, was excited to learn about this possible hGH/sleep link, and has been conducting its own studies to assess the effects of increased hGH levels and sleep.
“The individuals who use SeroVital®-hgh keep telling us over and over again how much better they’ve been sleeping since they started taking SeroVital,” says Amy Heaton, PhD, director of Scientific Affairs for SanMedica International, SeroVital’s distributor, “so we decided to conduct our own pilot sleep study to investigate the direct effects of SeroVital®-hgh on parameters of sleep efficiency.”
The preliminary results showed that in subjects taking SeroVital prior to bedtime for twenty consecutive days, both time to fall asleep and time awake in the night decreased exponentially. SeroVital-hgh appears to simply assist users in obtaining more restful sleep and awaking more refreshed in the morning.
“Although these are preliminary results, they suggest progressively greater sleep efficiency as measured by sleep latency and time awake in the night, and they’re compelling enough that we plan on conducting a larger multi-center study on this topic in the near future,” says Dr. Heaton.
