A great nights sleep is just as important as food and water for your health & well-being.
Rest well to perform at your best.
Exercise, work and other lifestyle demands put significant stress on your body. High levels of hormones like HGH are released during sleep to repair stressed muscles and tissues. Sleep also allows key nutrients and oxygen to be delivered to your muscles and tissue. Leptin and Ghrelin, additional hormones released at night, help you maintain healthy weight by regulating appetite levels. All of these things are vital to your well-being.
Memory Consolidation and Cognitive Performance are impacted by the type of sleep you get at night. Memory Consolidation is a process where your brain "moves" short term memory to long–term storage for recall. Cognitive Performance refers to everything from clear and accurate problem solving to quick decisions and reaction times, which can be impaired by loss of sleep. Most people need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Losing as little as 1.5 hours of sleep per night can reduce your alertness the next day by 33%.
