How Your Body Repairs Itself While You Sleep
- Energy consumption is lowered.
When we’re not using our energy on daily activities, it can be redirected to other areas of the body that need energy for healing or repair. It also means that we “refuel” for the next day.
- Detoxification begins.
- According to Chinese medicine, the liver is most effective between 1a.m. and 3 a.m.
- Muscle and bone tissue starts to regenerate.
- Sleep is a superpower! And like a superhero, your body starts to repair muscle and bone tissue while asleep. Levels of adrenaline and corticosteroids decline while we sleep, and instead our bodies produce HGH — the human growth hormone. This protein promotes growth while repairing muscles and bones.
- Our body fights infections.
- While we’re asleep, our immune system is hard at work. Our body pumps tumour necrosis factor (TNF) through our blood while we sleep, a cancer-killing cell signalling protein. Studies have found that sleep deprived adults were more prone to infections.
- Hormones regulate.
- While we sleep, our body regulates hormone production which can improve your mood, and leave you waking up refreshed.
- Skin cell production increases.
- Studies have found that sleep deprivation causes wounds to heal more slowly. Conversely, deep sleep speeds up the skin’s metabolic rate, and cell production is increased.
- Our heart relaxes.
- While we sleep, our heart rate drops to between 10 and 30 beats per minute. This lowers blood pressure and lessens strain on the heart and circulatory system.
- We lose weight.
- When you get less than seven hours of sleep, your ghrelin and leptin hormones are impacted. These hormones control your feelings of hunger and fullness. This is why you’re likely to skip the gym and rely on high-carb-high-sugar foods to get you through the day when you’re tired.
