Benefits Of Deep Sleep

Benefits Of Deep Sleep

Our body cycles between NREM and REM sleep every 90 minutes, this is known as Sleep Cycle.

Having a complete sleep cycle is important because each type of sleep has its own special benefits. For example, some of the things happening to you when you are in deep NREM (N3) sleep are-

  • Wounds get healed
  • Energy is restored and body undergoes maintenance
  • WBC’s are created to prop up your body’s defence mechanism
  • Muscles are relaxed and restored
  • Growth hormones are released
  • The brain reorganises the mental pathways within the cortex, an activity vital to learning and to brain development.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
