We all know that sleep is important, but neuroscientist Jeffrey Iliff and his team have just discovered one more reason why sleep is more vital to us than we think. It turns out that while we sleep, our brain is cleaning itself of toxic proteins, including amyloid-beta, which is believed to be linked to Alzheimer’s Disease. Poor sleep quality or a lack of sleep would mean that you would have more amyloid-beta and other waste accumulating in your brain. Watch Jeffrey Iliff talk about his recent findings in this video below: And that’s why sleep affects so much of our overall health and well-being. Just like how your car requires maintenance, so does your brain. But for your brain, all you have to do is sleep it out. Your brain does all the cleaning automatically. You can wake up feeling refreshed and recharged for the day ahead. Isn’t that amazing? Now that you know how crucial sleep is, make sure you get enough quality sleep every night, so you can wake up healthy, with a brain free of waste proteins. It’s no longer just about beauty sleep now. It’s also about cleansing sleep.
