Benefits of Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can do to improve your physical and mental performance. In addition, sleep helps you recover from injuries faster and improves your overall health and resistance to illness. The benefits of getting a good night’s sleep include:

Improved Mental Health

  • Getting enough sleep supports the body’s ability to manage stress and anxiety. Lack of sleep is directly associated with depression.

Improved physical Health & Immune Function

  • Cell and muscle growth and repair occur during sleep. Therefore, your body will not recover fully from the previous day’s workout without sleep.
  • Poor quality sleep is associated with weight gain and obesity in adolescents and young adults.

Improved Cognitive Performance

  • Lack of sleep reduces your ability to focus and maintain attention and impairs decision-making and memory.

Lack Of Sleep?

Studies show that sleep directly affects immune function and that lack of sleep is associated with increased injuries in adolescent athletes. A study on the effects of sleep deprivation on adolescent athletes found that athletes who got less than 8 hours of sleep a night were 1.7 times more likely to be injured than athletes who slept eight or more hours a night.

Sleep Supplements for Better Health

CANPREV Magnesium Stress Release + Ashwagandha, B5, B6 & C   is formulated with ashwagandha, an adaptogen that’s long been used to heal stress, as well as key vitamins B5, B6, and C for quelling stress hormone production.  Prolonged periods of stress have been associated with low magnesium levels due to increased elimination of magnesium from the body. This leads to a deficiency, resulting in an elevated release of stress hormones. It’s a vicious cycle – your body expels excess magnesium due to stress, and stress hormones are released more readily when there are low magnesium stores in the body.

Individuals with daytime stress, fatigue, irritability, and inability to concentrate and experience nighttime

Individuals who have problems falling (or staying!) asleep, working night shifts, or travelling to a new time zone may benefit from supplemental melatonin. 


Get Better Sleep

As you can see, there are many benefits to getting a good night’s sleep. Although, knowing this and doing it are two different things! First, it’s important to understand how much sleep to aim for. Teenagers should get 8-9 hours of sleep a night. Adults should shoot for 6-8 hours of sleep a night.

Second, it is good to have some strategies to make falling asleep as easy as possible. Try some of the following tips to find what works best for you.

  • Use blackout curtains and reduce excess light to make your bedroom as dark as possible.
  • Avoid spending time on your phone, computer, or watching TV at least 30 minutes before going to bed.
  • Create a bedtime routine to start winding down at least 30 minutes before bed. For example, your routine might include reading, listening to relaxing music, journaling, or taking a bath.
  • Get the recommended amount of exercise throughout the day. However, avoid intense exercise close to bedtime as it can make relaxing and falling asleep difficult.
  • Avoid caffeinated beverages late in the day.
  • Establish a consistent bedtime. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. By sticking to a routine your body can count on, you are more likely to get the recommended amount of sleep.
