Sleep Is Essential for Immune Function

February 19, 2019

It’s already accepted and well-established that sleep is good for your health and helps you feel good—that’s why we have expressions like “sleep it off” or the well-worn “stay home and rest”. A lot goes on when you sleep; most notably, the brain rests and resets, in addition to resting and maintenance for your heart. Now a study has grasped onto a possible mechanism for how sleep is essential to the immune system’s ability to fight off pathogens, highlighting just how important a good night’s rest each night is! Make sure that you’re getting your ZZZs with our Sleep Support Pack.

T Cells, which are a sort of attack cell, need to be activated to work, need to be able to grab onto bad cells/pathogens, and more—and sleep may be a key ingredient to getting them going and working well.

We already know that not sleeping enough causes several health problems, including a weakened immune system, depression, stress, increased signs of aging, and more. Understanding how sleep causes (or solves) all these problems could lead to new treatments in the future (things that could be used to enhance cancer treatment, for example). Now that researchers have found a point of interaction between sleep and the immune system (stimulating T Cells), future doctors may be able to offer treatments to help people whose bodies struggle with either sleep or immune function.

In the meantime, make sure you’re getting the advantages of a good night’s sleep. If you’re healthy, the biggest challenge is likely making sure you’ve set aside enough time. If you have occasional insomnia or trouble falling asleep, try our Sleep Support Pack. With sleep supporting herbs and the minerals your body needs for its nightly maintenance, Sleep Support Pack encourages real sleep, not induced sleep.
