Benefits Of Deep Sleep

Our body cycles between NREM and REM sleep every 90 minutes, this is known as the 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 the body undergoes maintenance
  • WBCs are created to prop up your body’s defense mechanism
  • Muscles are relaxed and restored
  • Growth hormones are released
  • The brain reorganizes the mental pathways within the cortex, an activity vital to learning and to brain development.
