Sleep & Brain Health

When you sleep, important neural connections, which sort and process the day’s information and create long term memories, are built and re-wired. Harmful toxins that build up in your brain from the day’s stresses are flushed and removed.

Benefits: Good sleep improves attention span, memory formation and your ability to learn. It also regulates mood.

Sleep & Cardiovascular Health

When you sleep, your blood pressure decreases, lowering your pulse and enabling your heart and blood vessels to rest and repair.

Benefits: Good sleep reduces your risk of stroke and coronary heart disease. High blood pressure is one of the key risk factors for cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of mortality worldwide.

Sleep & The Immune System

When you sleep, small proteins (antibodies) and T & B cells, which work to keep you healthy, are released into the bloodstream from the immune system.

Benefits: Good sleep empowers you to fight off everything from the common cold and the flu to other infectious diseases. If you are sick or injured, it will help your body fight infection and inflammation.

Sleep & Muscle Repair

When you sleep, tissue damaged from physical activity is repaired while new muscle fibers are generated. Your body produces its own muscle building hormones which along with your dietary protein, helps with repair.

Benefits: Good sleep enables you to recover faster and in turn build maximum muscle strength. Coordination and reaction times improve with sleep.

Weight Loss

Sleep & Weight Loss

When you sleep, the two proteins that affect your metabolism, the mechanism responsible for controlling satiety (feeling satisfied) and hunger, are regulated.

Benefits: Good sleep improves your ability to more effectively balance your diet and regulate consumption.

Getting enough sleep is not a luxury—it is something people need for good health.
