5-HTP and Ginkgo Biloba for sleep and brain

April 23, 2014 | By NuBest
Deep and sufficient sleep is essential for the overall physical, mental, and brain development of children. Sleep is the time for regenerating lost energy, increasing memory, concentration and study capabilities of children, stimulating the pituitary gland to produce growth hormone (GH), and eventually facilitating optimal height growth.

What is the role of sleep for height development?

In addition to nutrition, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle, sleep plays a role in height development. During sleep, the pituitary gland will stimulate the production of growth hormone naturally to help with height increase.

During the pre-puberty and puberty periods, the growth hormone will be released in the whole day, stimulating a range of assimilation activities in the body, strengthening firm muscles and improving the height optimally. The time to release growth hormone best and most fully is during deep sleep, from 11:00 PM - 01:00 AM.

Therefore, going to bed by 10:00 PM and having a sleep of at least 8 hours per day are required for people who want to have the maximum height. If they do not go to bed on time, they will miss the time period for most growth hormone release and will not feed enough “energy” for the natural growth of the body, leading to delayed height development.

Brain development is necessary for children besides height growth

It’s the dream of all parents that their children can develop fully their brain and height. The brain manages all the body activities, plays a role in intelligence, response, and actions.

Brain development is necessary for children besides height growth

Children’s brain stops developing when they reach the age of 18. During the ages of 2-11, children’s brain has the fastest development speed. This period also plays a fundamental role in the later development of children, so the parents should take advantage to help their brain development in the most comprehensive manner. Besides allowing children to learn in a comfortable way without any force and attend brain-stimulating courses, parents should provide their children with an outstanding nutritional intake to stimulate their mental potential optimally right from the beginning.

Discovering nutrients helping children grow tall and intelligent

Scientific research has shown that 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and Ginkgo Biloba are good for sleep and the brain.

  1. 5-HTP is an intermediate agent which transforms tryptophan into serotonin. This is also a monoamine neurotransmitter that is mainly present in the gastrointestinal tract and central nervous system. 95% of serotonin is present in the gastrointestinal tract and 5% is present in the central nervous system. Having the same action with a natural sedative, 5-HTP helps stabilize sleep, maintain nervous health, and create positive, optimistic, and comfortable feels.
  2. Ginkgo Biloba helps with blood transportation to the brain, stimulates intelligence, increases brain blood circulation, minimizes the risks of cerebrovascular accidents, impaired cerebral circulation, fixes symptoms of stress, headache, swinging mood, and helps to maintain the high level of concentration to achieve better results in work, study and examinations, etc.

Scientific research has shown that the combination of 5-HTP and Ginkgo Biloba is perfect for strengthening the overall health and the brain, bringing about good and deep sleep, stimulating the production of growth hormone in the timeframe of 11:00 PM - 01:00 AM, all of which help height and brain development.

However, the nutrients in our body cannot synthesize themselves, so they should be supplemented using food supplements.
