Oxygen: The Key to Sleeping Well
Updated: Jun 22
Sleep is vital to achieving good health and keeping your well-being at an optimum. It is important to have quality sleep at the right hours to ensure your physical and mental well-being. During sleep, our bodies undergo repair, renewal and restoration.
To further illustrate the importance of sleep, here are its functions in detail:
- Sleep is involved in healing and repairing your heart and blood vessels
- Sleep sustains a healthy balance of hormones
- Sleep maintains healthy blood glucose levels
- Sleep contributes to growth and development of the body
When we enter into deep sleep, growth hormones are discharged throughout body to boost muscle mass and to repair cells and tissues in children, teens and adults.
- Sleep contributes to growth in puberty and fertility
- Sleep maintains a healthy immune system
However, what we do not realise is that oxygen is equally important in ensuring optimum cellular and brain functions when we sleep. The quality of our bodily transformations like cell renewal, tissue repair and memory consolidation during our sleep is affected by the level of oxygen in our bodies.
Oxygen serves to relax your mind and body, making you more responsive to sleeping. Oxygen also enables you to stay sound asleep, ensuring a peaceful and abundant night of rest. This is especially important for children and teens, because the body supplies extra oxygen to the muscles during deep sleep, assisting in growth and development.
Studies have shown that a deficiency in sleep alters some sections of the brain. When you are sleep deficient, your ability to make decisions, solve problems and manage your emotions will be hindered. Sleep deficiency has also been linked to an increased risk of depression and other risk-taking behaviour.
Today, the medical community has begun to rediscover how important oxygen is for our physical, emotional and mental well-being. To find out more about the benefits of oxygen, click here.
