Why healthy sleep is so important

Warum gesunder Schlaf so wichtig ist - HS Activa

If you also suffer from sleep problems , you probably know the pressure you put on yourself before you go to bed. You hope that tonight you can finally get the restful sleep that you so desperately need.

This pressure is particularly great when you have to get up very early every morning with the alarm clock ringing. You look at the clock every hour and count the hours you could sleep until you have to get up. This can end in a real vicious circle in which the nights seem endless.

Why is healthy sleep so important?

91 percent of respondents to the Statista Global Consumer Survey said their quality of life is significantly affected. (source below).

Health problems related to lack of sleep:

    • Loss of performance
    • Concentration problems
    • Higher risk of diabetes
    • Stress and headaches
    • Higher risk of heart attack
    • Higher likelihood of developing mental illness

After just one restless night you feel tired and exhausted . The ability to concentrate decreases, you often suffer from increased cravings and your mood also worsens.

After just 3-4 days with less than 5 hours of sleep, you may experience symptoms that feel like you are drunk. When there is a lack of sleep , increased levels of adenosine are released, a messenger substance that reduces the ability to react and concentrate.

But what happens during sleep that causes a deficiency to have such extreme effects on our health?

When we sleep, our body runs a kind of cleansing program . Biological processes for breaking down toxins and pollutants are running at full speed, fat is being burned and the liver's sugar stores are being emptied.

Our brain also recovers during sleep. In the REM phase, it processes emotional impressions of the day. This is also the phase in which you dream the most.

That's why conventional sleeping pills are not a solution!

Family doctors like to give their patients sleeping pills if they have insomnia. Chemical-based sleeping pills also have a mood-depressing effect.

They also regularly lead to headaches, nausea, daytime sleepiness, impaired ability to concentrate, reduced ability to react and ultimately physical dependence . **

Conventional sleeping pills are therefore not a recommended solution .

Our best tips for falling asleep and staying asleep better

Tip number 1: Take our “Sleep well”

Our “Sleep Well” contains, among other things, the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that the body naturally produces when it gets dark.

It is produced by the pineal gland in the brain, but also in other areas such as the eyes, bone marrow and intestines.

Melatonin is often referred to as the " sleep hormone " because high levels in the blood can help you fall asleep. It lets your body know it's nighttime so you can relax and fall asleep more easily .

In order to further improve the sleep-promoting effect of our "Sleep Well" product, we have added further ingredients that improve physical regeneration during the night.

Tip number 2: Fix your magnesium deficiency

You know that magnesium has a positive effect on the muscles. This in turn can also affect our sleep .

Magnesium is involved, among other things, in communication between muscle cells and our nervous system.

If there is a magnesium deficiency , communication and thus also relaxation and therefore the recovery (recovery and relaxation) of the muscles could deteriorate.

Magnesium can therefore have a positive effect on sleep quality .

    • Your bedroom should be cool, well-ventilated and dark
    • Try quiet, calming music , a sleep story on Spotify or iTunes, or a relaxing book
    • Relaxing stretching , sleep yoga or meditation can help calm the nervous system

    • We recommend only listening to high frequencies before sleeping. E.g. beautiful vacation photos, or watching nature or animal films
