Improve your sleep

We need sleep, along with food, water and air, to survive. Sleep is a vital indicator of overall health and well being.

If you are between 18 and 64, sleep range needed is 7-9 hours.

What happens to our body when we sleep?

Sleep is the time when the body can undergo repair and detoxification. Poor sleep patterns are linked to poor health. Sleep has a profound effect on our mental, emotional and physical well being.

Sleep is one of the best anti-aging remedy. During sleep we generate melatonin, a powerful antioxidant that makes us:

  • sleep longer
  • strengthens the immune system
  • protects against cancer
  • prevents osteoporosis and heart disease

Because melatonin production decrease after the age of 30, we must take care and:

  • eat a balanced diet
  • daylight exposure – see the sun
  • get enough sleep (7-9 hours/day)
  • avoid stress, don’t drink alcohol and coffee and don’t smoke
