Often sleeping late inhibits height growth ???
Is it true that often sleeping late inhibits height growth ???
Normally, “height” is influenced by genetics, races, parental height, and environments including exercise, diet, stress, and, another factor approved by research that importantly affects to child height, especially when your child is going to be a teenager, is “sleep”
During sleep, your body releases hormone named “growth hormone” which is the important hormone for growth and height in children and adolescents. Generally, “growth hormone” is released when you sleep tight, and it is most produced from 5 pm to 2 am.
Therefore, extreme sleeping late, especially after midnight, reduces growth hormone. Moreover, if you always stay up late in a long-term, it can affect to your height growth.
Best sleep habit to stimulate “growth hormone” is going to bed before 10 pm to sleep tight during growth hormone peak. In addition, you should sleep at least 8 hours per night. This habit is also good for adults. Although “growth hormone” does not affect to growth, it works on anti-aging causing younger appearance and good health.
