The Magic of Quality Sleep

 Sleeping is one of our most essential functions of our body system. According to the National Sleep Foundation, humans spend about a third of their lives time sleeping.  When to sleep, how to sleep and how long to sleep play an important role for our overall health. 

Why Do We Need Sleep

Sleep is so essential to your overall health because while you sleep, your brain is recharging, and your body is replenishing itself. So many processes occur during sleep, and getting enough quality sleep is essential to these processes.

Sleep is important for many reasons, including:

  • Clearing Waste

During sleep, the brain cleanses itself of waste that naturally accumulates throughout the day by releaseing a hormone of melatonin which has a number of health benefits, including providing a powerful flush of antioxidants to the immune system, to help fight free radical damage, cancer, inflammation, and brain decline.

  • Shed Water Weight

When we sleep, our body does shed off a considerable amount of water weight via sweating, breathing, and firing the metabolism (which continues to work at rest).  

  • The Spine Elongates and Realigns

While you sleep, the discs in your spine elongate or decompress due to lack of gravity and pressure that occurs as you stand during the day and walk around.

  • Heart Rate Decreases

During sleep the heart beat and heart rate both slow down and your blood pressure is lower as your heart muscles and circulatory system reboot and repair for the day ahead.

  • Eliminate Gas from the Digestive System

Due to the relaxation of the anal sphincter muscles while sleeping, more gas is eliminated from the digestive system.

  • Collagen Increases to Repair Damaged Skin

During sleep, the excess collagen proteins are released. Those excess collagen proteins help repair and strengthens damaged skin cells and also fighting those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Muscle and Tissue Repair & Growth

During sleep, all of the muscle energy burned during the day is replenished. During the rest, hormones—like adrenaline and cortisol (your fight or flight response) decreases, giving way to a flush of human growth hormone (HGH) needed for muscle repair, growth and maintenance as well as bones building.

  • Boost Immune System

The immune system works overtime as we sleep, excreting certain proteins, white blood cells, and more to help fight off germs, infections, and disease. That is why, you’re most prone to an infection or flu is you’re sleep deprived.

  • The Digestive System Gets a Rest

Your body is like a furnace, and that furnace is fueled by your digestive system, which supplies adequate energy by breaking down food into energy. During sleep, the digestive system slows down in order for optimal effectiveness during waking hours.

The Isotonix nutritional supplements are the world’s most advanced nutraceuticals. Our dietary supplements offer the fastest and most efficient delivery system of nutrients via an isotonic solution that is specially formulated to maximize your body’s absorption. 

Isotonic literally means “same pressure”, and it refers to a solution that bears the same chemical resemblance as the body’s fluids. Your body’s blood, plasma, and tears all have a certain concentration. This concentration is called the body’s common osmotic pressure, and it is essential to the consistent maintenance of the body’s tissues. 

When mixed with water, Isotonix® nutritional supplements are isotonic; they are consistent with the body’s osmotic pressure, and this makes the absorption of nutrients highly efficient, while also delivering maximum results. When it comes to sleep health, Isotonix offers two products that may help promote healthy sleep quality or support a healthy sleep cycle.

There are are a few Isotonix Supplements that benefit ofr quality sleep.
