HGH Boosts Cognition and Restfulness of Sleep
>

A new study in Seattle has examined the effectiveness of Human Growth Hormone as an aid to sleep. HGH drops sgnificantly in the 30's and 40's as part of the aging process. Scientists speculate that the decline in HGH is one of the factors causing insomnia and poor quality of sleep often observed as individuals age.

HGH, responsible for growth spurts in children, was administered to a group of subjects at the University of Washington's Sleep Research Group. Recipients of the substance scored 5-7% higher in tests of cognitive function than individuals in the control group, while also experiencing longer, more restful sleep.
