Sleep is literally a deep clean for your brain.
50-70 million U.S. adults have a sleep disorder with insomnia being the most common.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults get between 7-9 hours of sleep every night to maximize health and well being.
35.5% of adults report getting less than 7 hours of sleep each night.
Not getting enough sleep can wreak havoc on your health. “In the short term, a lack of adequate sleep can affect judgment, mood, ability to learn and retain information, and may increase the risk of serious accidents and injury.
In the long term, chronic sleep deprivation may lead to a variety of health problems including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even early mortality.”
A new study in the journal Science, reports that “sleep physically washes toxins, including those that can lead to Alzheimer’s from your brain.” Psychiatric and other neurological issues can be linked to a build up of these toxins.
Getting the recommended amount of sleep helps clean away the ‘toxic gunk” that builds up in your brain and is crucial to your health and well being.
