As you age, deep restorative sleep seems to slip away at an ever-increasing rate. As a child, you could find sleep in the back of your parent’s car. But, as we age, deep sleep becomes more of a dream than a reality. One of the significant causes of occasional sleeplessness, why you are not reaching the required deep sleep, is due to the Pituitary Gland in your brain.
The pituitary gland is a pea-size “master control center” in your brain. This gland tells the rest of the glands in your body when and what hormones to release. Hormones are chemical messenger molecules that are essential elements in your daily life. As a result, simple hormone imbalances can cause immense havoc in your life. When it comes to having occasional sleeplessness, this tends to be a circadian rhythm issue related to cortisol and human growth hormone (HGH) release.
Cortisol is a hormone controlled by your pituitary in its communication with your adrenal glands and is released throughout the day to keep you awake. When you are in the deepest state of sleep, your cortisol levels are the lowest. HGH keeps cortisol levels low since the release of HGH from your pituitary gland reduces the amount of cortisol in your body and helps you achieve a state of sleep. However, if your pituitary gland starts to malfunction, it can cause problems in the cortisol/HGH pathway and therefore disrupt your sleep cycle. This feedback loop of cortisol release and HGH release is why it’s so important to make sure your pituitary gland is functioning normally to ensure you get restful nights of sleep.
At Orenda, we realized how important it is to come out with a product that can contain ingredients that are shown to support deep restorative sleep when you have occasional sleeplessness, along with amino acids to support pituitary function. That is why we created Orenda O-Tropin® for anyone over the age of thirty who is serious about enjoying the prime of life. Certain amino acids and vitamins are provided in our formula to support deep restorative sleep when you have occasional sleeplessness and normal pituitary function. We have three key ingredients that help aid in you achieving a restful night’s sleep:
- Alpha GPC (Alpha Glycerlphosphoryl Choline)
- A natural choline compound is found in the brain, in milk, and soy. It is also an acetylcholine precursor used as a dietary supplement to enhance sleep, memory, and cognition.*
- Supports the release of HGH and GHRH, hormones that are related to sleep.*
- GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid)
- Stimulates HGH release (and therefore cortisol reduction)*
- Regulates neuronal excitability, relaxes, calms*
- Improves sleep cycle*
- Mucuna Pruriens (L-Dopa Bean Extract)
- Effect’s neurotransmitters and excites dreaming (REM sleep)*
- Supports HGH release.*
Orenda O-Tropin® also consists of micro molecular polypeptide complex of free amino acids comprised of Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate, L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Lysine, L-Valine, L-Isoleucine, L-Tyrosine, and Glycine. These are the amino acids responsible for supporting the communication between the Hypothalamus and Pituitary gland. Ensuring that your pituitary gland functions normally will help support a deep restorative sleep when you have occasional sleeplessness you only thought was in your dreams*.
