Poor Sleep Linked to Alzheimers

man sleeping on his couchIf you’re like the rest of us and have ever “suffered” from a poor night’s sleep, you know it can affect many things including your moods, your eating, your concentration and so much more.   More and more information is surfacing at how sleep is critical to health and even longevity. And now there’s evidence that poor sleep is also linked to Alzheimer’s founded by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley.

“Sleep is helping wash away toxic proteins at night, preventing them from building up and from potentially destroying brain cells,” Walker said. “It’s providing a power cleanse for the brain.”Finding ways to get yourself to sleep “better” is now more important than ever.

“This is a new pathway linking Alzheimer’s disease to memory loss, and it’s an important one because we can do something about it,” Mander said.

Share your thoughts on how sleeping has affected you and how you’ve been able to sleep more enjoyably and effectively.
