Chronotype Is Secret To The Best Night’s Sleep

One German town is taking extra measures to prove medical findings that a person living within their chronotype or ‘personal sleep pattern’ will have a healthier life. Dr. Thomas Kantermann of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands explained that a person sleeping outside their chronotype can lead to illnesses such as obesity, depression, and cancer.

Because of his findings, Dr. Kantermann has set up a study in his town Bad Kissingen, to help residents have more successful sleep patterns. He says that factors such as night work shifts, early mornings and late nights, artificial lighting can interrupt a person’s healthy chronotype. In order to combat this, Bad Kissingen has adopted a few practices to helps its residents sleep more soundly such as: a better urban lighting scheme, changing work and school times, improving conditions for shift workers and hospital patients.

While adhering to your personal sleep cycle is optimal for the healthiest sleep possible, some people have issues with falling asleep and staying asleep. Replenishing the levels of melatonin within the body can help aid in staying asleep throughout the night. Sleep Tight All Night is an all natural supplement that delivers melatonin and other vitamins and minerals that aide in a restful night’s sleep.

Poor Sleep Linked to Heart Disease

Researchers from the University Hospital of Linköping, Sweden, have released the findings of their latest study that shows that patients who have heart failure have serious sleep issues that are now being linked to their heart health.

According to the first author of the study, Dr. Peter Johansson, ”Our study shows that some patients with heart failure have chronic sleep problems and this more than doubles their risk of unplanned hospitalisations. We need to ask all our heart failure patients whether they sleep well and if not, find out why.”

Overall the study’s finding’s were astonishing, stating that,”Patients with continued sleep problems were two times more likely to be hospitalised during the follow up period than those without any sleep problems. Risk was double for all-cause hospitalisations and for cardiovascular hospitalisations.”

Getting to the bottom of sleep issues is more important than people might believe. Another study found that people who sleep less than six hours each night are four times more likely to have a stroke.

One natural way to add more sleep to your night is to determine what your individual sleep cycle is. There are several ways to do find out what your sleep cycle is, and there are also ways to help wind yourself down at night to prepare for a better night’s sleep. A lot of times people have a low level of melatonin in their system, which is responsible for keeping us asleep at night. Using a supplement such as Sleep Tight All Night, can help replace melatonin in the body as well as deliver other nutrients that promote sleep.

Waking up in the morning after a long night of tossing and turning can be a difficult feat and can also mess with what your true sleep cycle should be. Wake Up On Time is a time released tablet that delivers vitamins and botanicals that actually wake you up naturally. The supplement is taken 6-8 hours before you need to wake up, so no matter how much or how little sleep you get through the night, you will feel refreshed and energized in the morning.

Avoid These Foods For A Restful Night’s Sleep

Late night snacks are often frowned upon by the medical world for fear of weight gain and elevated blood sugars. What people don’t know is that certain foods before bedtime can actually hinder your ability to sleep peacefully through the night.

Sleep Specialist Dr. Robert Rosenberg, says there are several foods to avoid before sleep and a few you can indulge on that could aid in a restful night’s sleep. First, he says to avoid cured meats and aged cheeses because they contain an amino acid called tyramine, which is known to interfere with sleep.

For a helpful late night snack, Dr Rosenberg says to reach for “…a mixture of complex carbohydrates such as whole wheat bread or crackers with foods that contain tryptophan such as turkey or most dairy products” because they can promote sleep.

Sometimes underlying issues such as low melatonin levels can inhibit a person’s sleep, so using a supplement containing melatonin, such as Sleep Tight All Night, can often times be helpful.

Have you noticed a difference in your sleeping patterns when you eat something out of the ordinary before bed?

An Early Wake Up Time Linked To Low BMI

A recent study released by Northwestern University showed that the earlier a person wakes up in the morning the lower their body mass index (BMI), by 20%. Why is an early wake up time contributing to a lower weight in people? Experts say that high levels of exposure to early morning sun have been linked to a person having a lower BMI regardless of their exercise, caloric intake, age, sleep timing or the current season.

After closely monitoring the light exposure, sleep cycles and food intake of the 54 participants, researchers found that those participants who woke later in the day had a higher BMI.

“Light is the most potent agent to synchronize your internal body clock that regulates circadian rhythms, which in turn also regulate energy balance,” said study senior author Phyllis Zee.  In order to take full advantage of the powerful morning light, the study says for people to be outside as much as possible between 8AM and noon every day.

For those who have a hard time waking to the bright morning light, Wake Up On Time has a solution for you. Taking two caplets of Wake Up On Time, 6-8 hours before you want to wake up in the morning will guarantee you see the morning light.

Don’t miss the hours of the day that are most important to your health, Wake Up On Time!

Night Terrors and Sleep Deprivation

There is no worse feeling than seeing a child or loved one experiencing a night terror. The bad news is, there is a laundry list of items that can cause them such as stress, sleep deprivation, fatigue, anxiety and fevers, to name a few.

Experts say that a night terror is much like sleep walking so parents need to be aware that the child will not know their parent is near them. It is recommended that the parent stays near the child to insure their safety but to not try to wake them. The night terror will subside on its own and the child will have no recollection of it happening.  The Children’s Health Network says the best way to cope with night terrors is to make sure children are getting enough sleep and that they are not over stressed or experiencing high levels of anxiety.

What is even more shocking is  that adults can experience night terrors just as children do. In an effort to avoid night terrors all together, establishing a structured bedtime routine and sleep cycle is imperative. Adequate amounts of sleep aid in lowering stress levels, which is a common contributor to having terrors. And remember, if you restrict yourself on the appropriate amount of sleep one night, make sure you make it up within 24 hours, otherwise you will head down a sleepy slope that will be hard to climb out of. For adults, taking a supplement such as Sleep Tight All Night can help restore your sleep cycle and put your restless nights at bay.

Is Your Tablet Stealing Your Melatonin and Your Sleep?

It has been noted for a few years now that the blue light from electronic tablets, phones and computers has been linked to keeping people from being able to get quality sleep.

Consistent exposure to blue light actually suppresses the production of Melatonin in the body, which is the hormone responsible for restful sleep. Taking simple steps such as shutting your device off 30 minutes prior to laying your head down or you purchasing a filter for each of your devices can help lower the blue light exposure. In the busy, response hungry society that our world has turned into, ignoring experts’ recommendations becomes easy to do. It also lends us to place the blame for lack of sleep on something that may not be the leading culprit.

While Melatonin levels being suppressed by blue light exposure is very real, so are various health and lifestyle factors that cripple Melatonin levels.  Certain medications, anxiety, PMS in women and simple things like strenuous work schedules can all suppress Melatonin levels.  And truly knowing whether your lack of sleep is tied to a blue light overdose or to another factor is hard to do.

In an effort to try to save what sleep you have left, replenishing the melatonin levels in your body with a supplement like Sleep Tight All Night can help restore your sleep cycle. This sleep aid contains 5 mg of Melatonin plus a Proprietary Blend Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Valerian Root, Hops Flower Powder, Chamomile Flower Powder and Passion Flower Powder, which all work together synergistically to help sleep come more easily.

Lack of Sleep Is Labeled As The Performance Killer

A recent study shows that sleeping only 4 or five hours a night can impair your ability to think, learn, remember or be creative just as much as drinking a six pack would. Harvard Business Review released a study compared job performance of individuals who don’t get enough sleep to that of individuals who would, hypothetically speaking, drink alcohol while on the job.

Calling lack of sleep, ‘the performance killer’, professionals are urging people to listen to their bodies and get the appropriate amount of sleep, every night. When one or two hours of sleep is lost in a 24 hour period, it can be made up by having an earlier bed time the next day. However, when lack of sleep becomes a perpetual cycle, it isn’t fixed as easily as moving bedtime up an hour for one night. This is when experts are saying that people are seeing the affects of sleep deprivation.

For people who have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep, the lack of melatonin in the body could be an underlying cause. Sleep Tight All Night is an all natural supplement that helps replace melatonin in the body as well as deliver additional herbs and vitamins that contribute to a relaxed night of sleep.

Often times when we struggle to sleep and have a looming wake up time growing near, we become more anxious and have an harder time sleeping. Here are some great tips to help you sleep more peacefully so you can wake up on time in the morning.

1. If you wake up at night, you may need to get up.

Experts say that if you wake up in the middle of the night and are agitated that you cannot fall back asleep, then you need to get out of bed. It has been found that people who associate negative feelings about their sleep environment will most likely not sleep well. So unless you are at peace and relaxed when you wake up at 3am, then head to the couch for a change of scenery.

2. You don’t really have insomnia.

People who have a hard time fall asleep or who experience a broken sleep pattern throughout the night often times start to label themselves as an insomniac. Experts are now saying that simply telling yourself that you have insomnia will keep you from sleeping well. So before you go to bed, instead of thinking you won’t sleep or that you are an insomniac, simply think pleasant thoughts about a good night’s sleep and relax.

3. Don’t over think your wake up time.

If you have an earlier than normal wake up time in the morning, don’t think about it too much. And remember,if you have already established your sleep cycle, it will be hard for you to force yourself to fall asleep earlier than normal. Make sure to have positive thoughts about waking up early so that you don’t clog your mind with anxiety over it.

4. Take your Wake Up On Time

Whether you are getting up at your normal wake up time, or setting your alarm 2 hours earlier, remember to take Wake Up On Time 6-8 hours before you alarm goes off. This will insure that you can have a gradual awakening process that leaves you feeling refreshed and energized when the alarm sounds.

What is your best method for beating an early wake up time?
