Is insomnia bad for your heart?

Is insomnia bad for your heart?

A recently published research study has found a correlation between insomnia and a moderately higher risk for heart disease. Lars Erik Laugsand, the head researcher, and his team made adjustments for other risk factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption and body mass index in order to determine how sleep affected the likelihood of a heart attack.

Laugsand told WebMD, "If the association is confirmed, addressing sleep problems could prove to be an important intervention to lower heart attack risk."

Getting a good night's rest is essential to your overall well-being. It gives the body time to preform necessary renewal processes while you're in a restful state. The skin is one of the organs that takes advantage of the nighttime hours to replace dead cells with new ones.

It is important to establish a healthy sleeping routine that includes shutting off electronics a few hours before bed and avoiding caffeine and exercise in the evening as well. Make the most of your rest by using beauty products such as the Elemis FreshSkin Dreamy Sleep Night-Time Moisturizer. This formula will leave your skin bright and cheery when you wake up the next day.
