Insomnia – a Common Problem
Sleep is essential for maintaining proper cognitive and motor function, however up to 58% of Americans suffer from symptoms of insomnia, a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. This results in disrupted sleep patterns that can negatively influence many aspects of life, including reduced performance at work or school and moodiness.
Neurotransmitters and Sleep
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that transmit messages between nerve cells in the brain. These important messengers are essential for regulating many processes and responses in the body, including day-night cycles and sleep. Some of the most important of these neurotransmitters are GABA, which reduces anxiety and promotes relaxation, as well as serotonin and melatonin which help regulate the body’s daily sleep cycle.
