It’s well-established that sleep is vital for good heart and brain health, for the immune system, and more. Well, now a part of that “more” is bone health! If you’re a bad sleeper and struggle to get your ZZZs, get natural help from our Sleep Support Pack.
The study focused on menopausal women, who are already at an increased risk for osteoporosis, but if losing sleep can impact their bone health, it most likely impacts everyone. Women in the study who slept less than 5 hours a night had bones that were more aged than those getting enough sleep. Luckily, poor sleep doesn’t have a dramatic effect, just a noticeable one—but coupled with all the other health implications of good or poor sleep, it’s another reason to prioritize sleep!
In addition to getting all your vitamins (especially Vitamin D and calcium, which our in our Sleep Support Pack), build good habits for better sleep. Even adults need a bedtime routine (with the number one thing being to limit screen time or to use a blue light filter, since light can disrupt our sleepy cues and melatonin production). Other healthy habits like eating well, exercising, and limiting alcohol and caffeine can help encourage good sleep, too.
If you struggle with insomnia, poor quality sleep, or with building good sleep habits, our Sleep Support Pack can help you get on the right course. With some melatonin and other nutrients and herbs that support not only sleeping, but the processes our body goes through while we sleep, it helps support not just being asleep but a healthy, quality night’s rest.
