Sleep and Heart Health

A good night’s sleep is not just a remedy for grumpy moods, mental and physical lethargy. Researchers at the University of Chicago have recently discovered that adequate sleep makes your heart strong and healthy.

The research team noted that lack of sleep promotes calcium buildup in the heart arteries, causing plaque that eventually brakes off, blocks arteries, and leads to stroke and heart attack. The study suggests doctors warn their patients about lack of sleep, along with other rick factors such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension.

Chronic diseases are also conducive to sleep loss. Pain and pulmonary obstruction, the two most common ailments associated with chronic diseases, can keep you awake most of the night. Get relief for those maladies that prevent you from getting enough sleep.

The study shows eight hours sleep is ideal for human heart health. Anything less entertains heart risk. The closer you move toward a four hour sleep deficit, the greater your chances of developing coronary disease.
