While you're sleeping, your brain is preparing for the next day. It's forming new pathways to help you learn and remember information. In this way, your brain will be more prepared to learn. A student that does not sleep during the night trying to study for a test is more likely to fail in it than a student that had slept enough hours.
Sleep deprivation can lead to depression, difficulties to make a decision and other behavioral problems. Lack of sleep can also lead to increased anger and impulsiveness, having mood swings, feeling sad or depressed, or lack motivation. It can also prevent us from being in our peak mental state causing forgetfulness and brain fog later in the day.
The most natural way to protect your mental and physical health that also helps your life quality is sleeping.
Your body also heals itself and repairs its heart and blood vessels during sleep time. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.
Sleep deprivation is also related to obesity, because sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry or full. Also, the anxiety derived from lack of sleep can result in a greater ingestion of food—food not necessary for the body that’s finally stored as fat.
If all the mentioned benefits are not enough, sleep is also vital for the immune system to function at optimal levels. Sleep deprivation makes us more susceptible to illness and infections. Deep restful sleep assists our immune system with being able to protect the body against illness and invading bacteria or viruses
However, sometimes sleep doesn’t come as easily as we wish. Insomnia or other sleep disorders can cause a long list of health problems. Anxiety and stress can prevent us from sleeping, too. Some people tend to take sleeping pills, but they can be dangerous or addictive. That’s why Irwin Naturals created Power to Sleep PM®. This unique combination of natural ingredients can help you relax before bed and sleep soundly throughout the night.
Power to Sleep PM® contains melatonin and GABA in order to promote the onset of sleep and a normal and continuous sleep cycle. It also contains L-Theanine, an ingredient that helps to reduce the effects of stress. Other ingredients, as Calcium, Magnesium and Omega-3 fatty acids support the whole body health.
The best thing is that you’ll wake up refreshed, free of early-morning drowsiness and ready to perform your daily activities!
