The human body is amazing because when they sleep they don’t know leave. When we are busy dreaming, the body is still working. The symptoms of the body when humans sleep are that blood pressure drops, breathing slows, muscles relax and release hormones, including those that help humans grow and develop, according to the National Sleep Foundation.
Besides the muscles stop working and the body can’t move, there are other things that happen to our body while sleeping. Curious?
1. Leptin and ghrelin hormones begin to starve due to work
According to the Hormone Health Network, when we sleep, our digestive system continues to regulate the levels of the hormone leptin and gherin. Ghrelin hormone functions as controlling appetite, aka a hungry barrier. While leptin hormone as a regulator of long-term food intake for energy expenditure, why only once a meal continues to move.
When we lack sleep, the two hormones lose their balance, which results in us eating a lot if we stay up all day. So these two hormones are behind the events of why people gain weight due to staying up late.
2. The process of restoring muscles and bones
The reason for sick people is told to take a lot of rest because sleep is a natural workshop for the body. When sleeping, our body releases human growth hormone (HGH) to see some shuteye that can regenerate muscles and bones.
This situation is dominated by the workings of natural adrenaline and corticosteroids. But when we go to sleep we turn to negative conditions, conditions where energy conservation, improvement and growth take over. What happens is that adrenaline and corticosteroids decrease and the body produces human growth hormone (HGH).
3. Increased immune system
According to the National Cancer Institute, when we sleep, our bodies release certain proteins that help fight infections, one of which is tumor necrosis factor (TNF) which is believed to kill several types of cancer cells.
Tumor Necrosis Factor is a protein made by white blood cells in response to antigens (substances that cause the immune system to make specific immune responses) or infections. Its function is to increase a person’s immune response, and can cause necrosis (cell death) of several types of tumor cells.
“Based on studies of adults, people who often stay up late in moderate amounts can reduce the level of white blood cells that function to form the immune system”, according to the Daily Mail
Whereas people who are still literate until 3 o’clock in the morning have a third less cellscontaining tumor necrosis factor (TNF) the next day.
4. Skin improves itself
The top layer of the skin is made of dead cells that are constantly shed during the daytime. Sleeping during the day won’t affect skin regeneration, the effect is felt at night. During the day, the energy needed to repair the network is diverted to something else.
During deep sleep conditions , the speed of skin metabolism increases and body cells show increased production and reduced protein breakdown.
Protein is a building block needed for cell growth and repair damage from factors such as ultraviolet light, so that deep sleep is a time for skin to repair itself.
5. The body starts cleaning the internal organs
The term organ in doing cleansing is detoxification. Detoxification is the process of removing toxins in the body. The detoxification process usually starts at 23:00 to 1:00 in the morning.
This happens because during the daytime debris and damaged tissue is discharged into the bloodstream. In literacy conditions, most of the waste will be discharged through the lungs, kidneys, intestines and skin.
Sometimes when it reaches a saturation point, the body will warn us to reduce waste production to replenish lost energy, this is what causes us to become tired and flat.
During sleep, the cells and tissues that break down produce toxic waste which then becomes less active. This is an opportunity to rebuild a damaged network.
So that’s our body’s activities while sleeping. The goal is good for humans, it’s just that we don’t realize. So stop being strong by not sleeping.
