Sleep is the basis of life, isn’t it? Besides, did you know that you spend 1/3 of your life sleeping? a lot, right ?
But sleeping is not only good for resting… Sleeping is also an excellent way to boost your immune system, but only if you do it well!
But how can sleeping boost the immune system? During the winter and the changing seasons, our bodies sometimes have to fight against nasty viruses (for example, the seasonal flu, and the recent Covid-19, and many others that often go much more unnoticed…). In these conditions, some advices to boost your immune system are never too much… We sometimes feel a little helpless in front of these epidemics… and if it was the moment to really recharge our batteries?… All consciously, day and night!
So… Most of us generally need about 8 hours of sleep per night. But it can vary between 6 and 9 hours depending on age and from person to person. It’s up to each person to find his or her own balance and needs.
How does it all work? ?
ORGANISM & METABOLISM : :
Good sleep is essential for the proper functioning of our body and metabolism.
Because yes, if you didn’t know it, a lack of sleep disturbs the regulation of hormones. For example, due to lack of sleep, the appetite hormone level increases and the level of hormones providing satiety decreases, the result of all this? Gaining weight.
Sleep helps the body perform the functions necessary for development and health. During sleep our brain remains active. During the different phases of sleep, the body can fill up with energy and store the different information it has received during the day, the memory is as if restored.
Time and quality of sleep are therefore very important, it will allow you to integrate the new information, sort it out and wake up in the morning with all your creativity!
BACTERIAL AND VIRAL INFECTIONS:
During sleep, the brain releases hormones that help the immune system fight bacterial and viral infections.
Several studies have shown that: the less a person sleeps, the more likely they are to catch a cold more easily than a person with a healthy sleep pattern.
Sleeping well, enough, allows you to regenerate yourself, to get up in a better mood, and to fight more easily against nasty microbes and parasites …
