Not all Sleep is Equal When it Comes to Cleaning The Brain

If you think simply getting enough hours of sleep each night is enough to help your brain recover, you may want to think again.

New research finds the depth of your sleep each night can impact your brain’s ability to clean out waste and harmful proteins, potentially helping to prevent memory loss later on in life. Because sleep often becomes lighter and more disruptive as we age, the study reinforces some of the links between aging, sleep deprivation and Alzheimer’s disease, as sleep plays a vital role in promoting brain health. This serves as just one more reason to hit the bed earlier tonight. Head on over to ScienceDaily for more on the research findings.
