Posted by Curegarden Support on

Getting enough sleep each day is very important for maintaining your health and well being and to reduce your risk for ill-health. Sleeping well gives us more energy, makes us feel better, more focused and enhances our mood and ability to perform day to day tasks.

Why Sleep is Important?

Sleep is an important biological function that is important for life, if your body is sleep deprived then you have a higher chance of developing some serious health issues. Adequate sleep helps to improve memory and focus, repair damaged cells, boost the immune system, removes tiredness and fatigue, support cardiac health and make you productive for the next day. How much sleep you need depends on age, your body requires less sleep as you grow old. Therefore babies and children require more sleep than adults.

Health Problems Related to Poor Sleep

Getting insufficient sleep can lead to an increase in the risk of developing many serious health problems. Some studies also show that reducing sleep time by just 2 to 3 hours per night can have a serious impact on your overall health. The health problems related to poor sleep are:


Various research and studies show that lack of sleep is linked to weight gain. Leptin and ghrelin are the two hormones in our body that control the feelings of hunger and fullness. The level of these hormones is affected by sleep.



People who do not take enough sleep or quality sleep have a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Lack of sleep decreases insulin sensitivity in the body which can cause higher blood sugar levels.


Cardiovascular Disease

Sleep helps the heart vessels to repair and rebuild, therefore not getting enough sleep increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Also, lack of sleep can cause high blood pressure which in turn a big risk factor for cardiovascular disease.


Hormones Growth

Lack of sleep can affect growth hormones production and especially testosterone hormones in men.


Weaken Immune System

Not getting an adequate amount of sleep decreases the ability to resist infection and prevents the body from strengthening the immune system. This can mean the body can take longer to recover from illness as well as having an increased risk of chronic illness.
