Sleep is not just a matter of hitting the pillow at night and waking up in the morning. It is very important for
optimum health and also very important if we want to grow taller naturally. During sleep our pituitary gland secretes large amount of HGH or human growth hormone. We grow in size during sleep not just because our body is at rest but because of this human growth hormone. Therefore, it is important to know how to increase this growth hormone during sleep.
Length is important, we need about 8 hours every night. Inadequate of it affects our health and also the production of human growth hormone level. However, we also need to consider the quality. It is also a very important factor that can help to increase the secretion of HGH during sleep. Our body will not produce HGH effectively if we are in half-awake half-sleep mode.
So, it is important to get 8 hours of uninterrupted deep sleep. In order to do this, do everything to create quite and cozy atmosphere. Your room should be dark and fresh smelling. You can have scented candle or heated essential oil. Lavender, Vanilla and green apple are among the best scents, research found that it can help to lower anxiety and induce sleep.
Also, make sure that you have good ventilation, leave the door or window open or you can also turn on the fan to keep the air moving. Drinking milk before bedtime also helps in increasing the HGH because milk contain complete essential amino acids. One of them is the Tryptophan amino acid that also helps to induce sleep. Deep breathing also helps, practice total relaxation through breathing exercises just before bedtime.
Also Another important tips to increase human growth hormone secretion is to avoid eating a heavy meal particularly those high-carb diet just before going to bed. The point is to prevent having surge of insulin that tends to switch off human growth hormone production. Studies have shown that fasting 2 hours before going to bed can help to increase Growth Hormone secretion during sleep. So remember to avoid eating close to bedtime.
