Get Five Surprising Health Benefits of Sleep

Get Five Surprising Health Benefits of Sleep

Want to Improve Your Memory?

Your mind is surprisingly busy while you snooze. During sleep you can strengthen memories or "practice" skills learned while you were awake (it’s a process called consolidation).

CURB INFLAMMATION! 

Inflammation is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and premature aging. Research indicates that people who get less sleep six or fewer hours a night have higher blood levels of inflammatory proteins than those who get more.
A 2010 study found that C-reactive protein, which is associated with heart attack risk, was higher in people who got six or fewer hours of sleep a night.

You can live longer with better sleep ...

In a 2010 study of women ages 50 to 79, more deaths occurred in women who got less than five hours or more than six and a half hours of sleep per night.

Sleep also affects quality of life. If you sleep better, you can certainly live better. 

Time to Get Creative

In addition to consolidating memories, or making them stronger, your brain appears to reorganize and restructure them, which may result in more creativity as well.

Sleep Helps with Weight Loss

Researchers at the University of Chicago found that dieters who were well rested lost more fat 56% of their weight loss than those who were sleep deprived, who lost more muscle mass. (They shed similar amounts of total weight regardless of sleep.)

Dieters in the study also felt more hungry when they got less sleep.

Sleep and metabolism are controlled by the same sectors of the brain so when you are sleepy, certain hormones go up in your blood, and those same hormones drive appetite.

Difficulty Sleeping?

As Progesterone declines in midlife, the FIRST thing most women notice is a decline in the quality of their sleep. It usually gets worse and worse until eventually You’re Praying for a just one good night.

ProgesterONE is our AMAZING Sex Hormone that unfortunately is the first Sex Hormone to decline.

And it does so when we are just Spring Chickens - in our late 30's! And it just continues to plummet for the next 10-15 years until we're almost completely depleted of ProgesterONE.

So, do you know WHY ALL of Young Hormones Creams (Hormone Protect, Hormone Heaven and Hormone Support) help You Sleep?

ProgesterONE is the key ingredient here!

Progesterone also increases Growth Hormone - our Mommy Hormone! And you know how the saying goes - "When Mom's Happy, Everyone's Happy!"

Progesterone also increased thyroid function, helps keep our immune system strong - repairing cells while we sleep, helps prevent bone loss, decreases pain, inflammation, headaches and muscle cramps. 

Progesterone also helps prevent diabetes!

Progesterone decreased blood pressure, thus helping decrease heart disease! And finally ... what you have been hoping and waiting for ... Progesterone alone, even without Estrogen, can significantly reduce and even eliminate HOT FLASHES! Especially if you start using Progesterone before you enter Menopause.
