Polyphasic sleep and human growth hormone

Postby masterchief2012 » March 28th, 2013, 9:01 pm

I'm now 19 and I want to get taller in the upcoming years, I know well that the brain produces human growth hormone ( HGH ) , which is essential to growing taller , during sleeping. But I'm confused about polyphasic sleep, does it affect the producing of HGH and other hormones ? Imagine what a person could do with 4 hours of sleep or less, but if that means sacrificing one's hormone, it's not worth the effort, hope you can give an answer
thank you

It is in likely that you will have the ability to grow in height after 19.

Polyphasic sleep is not healthy and I would recommend against it. The bullet proof exec blog and the book lights out has some good stuff on sleep.

Hi. I am a polyphasic sleeper for almost 2 years and I sleep 4,5 hours a day. Me and my friends made lots of experiments on this fied and we want to share our experience. We decided to create a mobile application that would be an essential guide to polyphasic sleep experience for everyone.

Check our website:

We alredy have a functioning prototype that we use in our everyday life, but we need funds to finish it and launch to pruduction. So we created a company on kickstarter. ... sic-sleepe

We apreciate any feedback, proposals and contributions. If you have any questions please contact us.
