Over 60% of us suffer from sleep disorders
Together we can change these statistics
Most of us meet the results of insufficient sleep on a daily basis. While 60% of us are aware of our lack of sleep, the numbers are much higher when it comes to the outcomes. Overtime, insufficient sleep becomes a major risk factor for a variety of diseases. A non-well-slept individual is 30% more likely to suffer a heart attack and similar cardiovascular conditions, as well as the increasing risk of Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss.
The science of sleep
The scientific attention of improving sleep aims to the following components
Alpha brain waves (8-13.9Hz) - exist while we’re awake with our eyes closed and during sleep. Alpha brain waves are responsible for short to long term memory consolidation, cell repairment, tissue renewal and organ healing. In addition to its essential role in our body & mind, alpha waves need as little interruption as possible to enable their effect, and are very sensitive to environmental conditions.
EMF radiation emitted by our phones & chargers are a key factor interrupting alpha wave function according to various research results. Reducing EMF exposure is one of the most effective ways to upgrade sleep quality and achieve a better overall healthy well-being.
Melatonin, (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) is the chemical ingredient responsible for maintaining our circadian rhythms. Melatonin is produced in the brain, and secreted mostly through the night. It acts as the main sleeping operator, keeping us asleep through the night, and waking us up just like a biological built-in alarm, thanks to its ability to regulate itself and reduce its own levels. Nevertheless, melatonin is very easily interrupted, being sensitive to any change in light conditions while being produced and secreted.
We all find ourselves 24\7 connected to the TV, computers and of course, our light spreading little must-have device: our mobile phones. Blue light exposure at night time reduces melatonin production, making it harder to fall asleep and a lot harder to stay asleep.
