Proper sleep hygiene is required for Growth Hormone to be balanced in our bodies. Growth Hormone is responsible for stimulating repair of every tissue in the body along with releasing fat from fat cells. Growth Hormone also stimulates protein synthesis and fat metabolism; to provide energy for cell repair and regeneration.
I’m sure you’ve heard us talk about the importance of sleep as a foundation to healing and here’s why.
Up to 80% of Growth Hormone is secreted at night, between 11pm and 1am. So designing your lifestyle and sleep schedule around optimizing deep sleep during this time is critical for repair and fat loss.
Your Circadian Rhythm is responsible for regulation of hormones, melatonin production and cortisol levels. A disrupted circadian rhythm has shown to increase sleep disorders, obesity, diabetes, depression, and bipolar disorder. Along with hindering concentration, focus and productivity during the day. Your circadian rhythm or your sleep/wake cycle, is a 24-hour internal clock that regulates sleepfulness and wakefulness. It is also very sensitive to light.
LED and Blue Light devices (cell phone, laptop, watching tv) can disrupt your natural melatonin production and sleep, circadian rhythm and has a significant impact your hormone regulations, all which hinder your overall health. It also has a negative effect on our Serotonin (a happy hormone and required for us to stay asleep) production.
Low Serotonin can lead to:
- Night time snacking & sugar cravings
- Increased depression & anxiety
- Migraines & headaches
- Inability to stay asleep
- Low self esteem & impulsive behaviours
We are exposed to this artificial light day and night. From the screens we stare at, to the lights we live under. So, if you want to maximize your health, you need to protect yourself day and night from LED and Blue Lights.
RA Optics have created specific day and night glasses that help to reduce the amount of Blue Light you’re exposed to on a daily basis which can help to improve your Circadian Rhythm, Growth Hormones, sleep and ultimately, your overall health in general.
During the day– RA lenses have been developed to block 95% of blue light and are specifically designed to eliminate the unnatural spike of blue light emitted by computer screens and devices.
Nighttime, after sunsetglasses – For restful sleep, you need to block out all blue light which negatively affects the release of melatonin, your sleep hormone. RA night lenses block out 100% of the harmful blue & green light that is being emitted by digital devices and most indoor lighting.
