Sleep is the foundation of health. Below is an outline of what poor sleep (insomnia) does to your health. If you suffer from insomnia, chronic fatigue or rely on alcohol & sleeping medication these symptoms especially apply to you.
- One night of poor sleep can make someone as insulin resistant as a type 2 diabetic. This causing slow weight gain and makes weight loss impossible.
- Poor sleep increases intestinal permeability (leaky gut) increasing our sensitivity to problematic foods
- Small amounts of sleep deprivation increases systemic inflammation (CRP) and causes platelets to stick together, increasing the risk of heart disease & stroke.
- Short bouts of sleep loss down regulates the immune system increasing the chance of infections.
- Sleep debt alters our hormones and shifts the body from an anabolic to a catabolic state. This causes muscle loss and weight gain.
- Sleep deprivation is stress and the first thing our bodies look for is quick and easy fuel, particularly highly processed food. It’s a scientific fact that you are more likely to make poor food choices after a night of poor sleep.
- Lack of sleep negatively effects Mental Health, increasing anxiety and depression symptoms.
- Poor sleep significantly impairs cognitive function. If you study, work or run a business, lack of sleep makes you up to 50% less productive.
