Sleep is an important part of health that no amount of healthy food and exercise can counteract the negative effects of poor sleep. The researchers have linked poor sleep to a number of health disorders, including, for example, loss of long-term memory, behavior problems, weight gain and diabetes. Lack of sleep can have a negative impact also causing serious illnesses. A cycle of poor sleep can have negative effects in the production of melatonin, a hormone that is both a potent antioxidant against cancer.

Little sleep can also increase the levels of stress hormones. Moreover, when under stress your body releases hormones that increase heart rate and blood pressure. The muscles become tense, your digestive processes stop, and some centers of the brain are activated, changing the chemistry of your brain. Left unchecked, this stress response can cause headaches, anxiety and depression.

Sleep disorders are common and common: people of all ages often accused of not getting enough sleep, not sleep well or not getting to sleep. Immediate and visible are the effects of a lack of sleep: bags under the eyes, skin dim, heavy eyelids drooped, and in addition to anxiety, irritability, nervousness and fatigue. When, for whatever reason, lose sleep, we show a little 'tired the next day, but certainly this is not harmful to health. The lost sleep is easily recovered the next day thanks to the ability of self-regulation of our body. Problems can arise when, despite the demand and need of sleep the body, it is not possible to rest and satisfy the physiological need. A whole series of factors, like stress or work schedules, can adversely affect sleep and prevent the body to rest properly. Is there a minimum time and indispensable to the survival that must be devoted to sleep. The body needs sleep at least two hours a day to live and the biological clock also determines the maximum number of fifteen hours to devote to sleep. A sleep debt is recovered from the body with a night's rest. The time for sleep is a delicate conversation, because little sleep creates a variety of disorders, but sleeping too long because many hassles. Those who sleep badly, little and not enough rest becomes irritable, nervous, lose concentration, memory and becomes depressed. Who devotes too much time to sleep, gets nervous and feels exactly like someone falling yields little sleep. Knowing how to sleep on a regular basis, for a number of hours suitable to our needs is synonymous with health and physical well-being both physically and mentally. Many people have suffered from insomnia: sleep disorder usually is like the tip of the iceberg, where sees only what is above you and ignore the problem underground. In fact, appropriate attention with respect to a set of indicators of insomnia both nighttime, both in daylight it is important to highlight the presence of sleep disorders in the individual subject and to define more accurately the specific incidence and the consequent cure.


Human beings have within them a sort of biological clock that influences some physiological processes and which affects waking hours and those of sleep. The operation of this clock is the circadian cycle (from the Latin about diem = about a day), which regulates through the action of chemical messengers and nervous organic processes that occur every day in our body, such as digestion, urination, evacuation, growth and cell turnover. The biological clock also determines the alternation of periods of sleep and wakefulness with an interval rather regular and constant inside the circadian rhythm, unless that address some factors that may influence from the outside part of the operation. A regular cycle of sleeping and waking causes the biological clock have a positive influence on the hormone production to obtain a sufficient condition of daytime alertness and a satisfying night's rest. During sleep, the low level of adrenaline and corticosteroids, hormones that are associated with the waking state, give the body the ability to leverage higher levels of growth hormone, produced by the pituitary gland at night. Sleeping body temperature slowly decreases until it reaches about one degree less of the evening. When the temperature drops and reaches the minimum level, and this coincides with low levels of adrenaline, we feel tired. Towards the end of the night, with the first light of dawn, it is more difficult to sleep or staying asleep, at about 5 am because the hormone levels begin to grow and also increases the body temperature. The cycle of sleep and wakefulness is regulated by another hormone, melatonin, produced by epiphysis a small gland in the brain. The light, penetrating into the eye through the nerves, send a message that the epiphysis, based on the amount of incoming light, blocks or stimulates the production of melatonin. Darkness causes the production of this hormone that gives the signal that your body slows down gradually as its activities and prepare for sleep. The recording of electrical brain electroencephalography (EEG), respiration, heart rate, muscle activity and eye can differentiate different stages of sleep. During numbness is present the progressive slowing down of the electrical activity of the brain, the increase of the synchronization, the appearance of
