Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia isn’t about coping with lesser sleep.
It’s a serious health issue that doesn’t just ‘dumb you down’, but also increases your risk of heart diseases, diabetes and doubles your risk of death from cardiovascular diseases!
The number of patients who seek help for sleep disorders at Singapore General Hospital increased 40% in 2012.
It is perhaps time to ask ourselves, are we sleep deprived?
Sure, we have personal and professional commitments that keeps us up for longer hours.
The question is, is this okay?
Some of us may even hit a point where we have problems falling asleep ( insomnia ) or even suffer from problems STAYING asleep.
Some of the more common problems for this includes:
- Excessive or poor managed stress
- Depression or anxiety
- Excessive caffeine consumption
- Poor sleep habits and irregular sleep patterns
Does this sound familiar to you?
Sleeping 5 hours during the weekdays, 10 hours during the weekends.
Loading up on coffee when you hit the office on Monday…maybe 3 or 4 cups to stay awake.
Change your lifestyle today and reclaim proper rest for your body.
Studies have shown that certain minerals are effective natural sleep aids for people suffering from Insomnia.
Calcium for example, is directly related to our cycles of sleep, it helps us fall asleep and stay asleep through the night.
One study suggests that disturbances in sleep may be related to a calcium deficiency, while chronic insomnia could also be related to a magnesium deficiency.
In the case of the latter, frequent nighttime awakenings usually happens.
Calcium and Magnesium is important to overall health and the two minerals should be taken for best rest.

James F. Balch, M.D., author of Prescription for Nutritional Healing, writes: "A lack of the nutrients calcium and magnesium will cause you to wake up after a few hours and not be able to return to sleep." Chronic insomnia is one of the main symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Sleep in magnesium deficiency is usually agitated with frequent nighttime awakenings. On the other hand, a high magnesium diet has been found to be associated with deeper, less interrupted sleep. This was shown in a study done by James Penland at the Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota.
