We sleep for 1/3 of our total lifetime. That means an average 30 year old has spent about 10 years of their life sleeping! Why do we need so much sleep?
Sleep is as important to our bodies as nutrition and exercise. It is necessary for physical and psychological health. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that adults need 7 or more hours of sleep each night. And it’s not just about the total hours – it’s also about the quality of that sleep.
The benefits of quality sleep cannot be overlooked and include:
- Increased overall health
- Lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity
- Reduced stress
- Improved mood
- Increased cognitive function
Our overall health is directly related to our sleep patterns, so how can we improve the quality of our sleep and therefore our overall health? By ensuring that our body has the proper vitamins and minerals to aid our natural sleep functions.
Our biological processes have a 24-hour rhythm that controls our sleep-wake cycles. When our body is deficient in vitamins or minerals, these processes can be negatively affected.
Vitamins that enhance sleep include:
- Vitamin D
- B Vitamins
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
These essential nutrients can help regulate production of melatonin, relax muscles, and influence the quality and even quantity of sleep.
