Sleep disorders come in all shapes and sizes, affecting a huge percentage of the UK population. In some cases, disorders can be agonising and terrifying, but most are thankfully mild and easily treatable. Kirkland Sleep Aid sleeping pills will help with mild to moderate insomnia and sleeping disorders.
By far the most common sleep disorder is Insomnia. Describing a general inability to either get to sleep, or stay asleep, insomnia is estimated to affect up to a third of the adult popular. Thank about that… one in every three of us suffers from insomnia from time to time.
The causes of insomnia can be varied, but the most common causes are stress, anxiety, worry… ‘normal life’ things. Of course, that doesn’t help the sufferer a lot, but it is an indication that our modern lives are taking, perhaps, too much of a toll on our health. Sleep is so important to us. It is the time our bodies repair and rebuild themselves. While asleep, our bodies attempt to heal and repair blood vessels, and your immune system goes in to its most effective action.
Numerous studies have also shown that a prolonged lack of sleep affects the body’s hormone levels, including insulin and your hunger hormones, ghrelin and leptin. A lack of bloody sugar will make you tired and listless and problems with your appetite hormones will lead to an increased hunger during the day.
And of course, it’s not just physical… Extended periods of sleeplessness can wreak havoc with your mental state.
