Sleep… what does it do for your system?
Sleep plays a number of roles in our body. It allows some organs to slow down for others to activate and work.
Did you know that, for example, the liver is at its peak activity at around 3 am? (A little tip: drink the juice of half a lemon in a glass of water in the evening before going to bed to facilitate the elimination of toxins by your liver if you overindulged during a meal). On the other hand, breathing as well as muscular and blood pressure are slowed down.
Sleep also works on cell reconstruction and regeneration. During this period, our cells regenerate and stimulate healing or natural epidermis cells (skin surface) renewal.
The importance of good sleep for a dream body
As you probably understood, sleeping is crucial for your cells’ regeneration but also for your general balance and wellbeing. Several studies have shown that lack of sleep contributed to weight gain. When we are feeling weak, we tend to snack to compensate the lack of energy. So, lack of sleep makes us hungry!
If you manage to have a balanced and healthy lifestyle, you will definitely see positive results on your body and mind.
After a cryolipolysis session, slow down and make a point of sleeping at least 7 hours per night.
PS: don’t forget to drink lots of water to eliminate toxins!
