What Goes on at Night
While we sleep and see colorful dreams our body is doing its work. Let see what happens in the night within our body hour by hour!
In the blood, the number of leukocytes increases twofold - the immune system checks its territory. Body temperature drops. The biological clock signals: it's time to sleep.
The body relaxes more and more, but every cell is in a full swing the restorative process.
Consciousness is more and more dominated by dreams, while the brain continues to work, sorting out the information received for the day.
Sleep is very sensitive. Untreated in time, a tooth or a knee, that has been injured for a long time, may cause discomfort and prevent you from falling asleep until morning.
All organs rest, only the liver is working at full power, ensuring cleanse from accumulated toxins.
Complete physiological decline: blood pressure at the lowest limit, pulse and respiration are at the minimum.
The brain is supplied with a minimum amount of blood and is not ready for awakening, but the hearing is exacerbated extremely - this is the time many of us wake up from the slightest noise.
The kidneys rest, the muscles are asleep, the metabolism is slowed down, but body is slowly preparing to waking up.
Adrenal glands begin to throw hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline into the blood, this in turn, increase blood pressure and cause the heart to beat more often. The body is already preparing for awakening, although consciousness is still slumbering.
Limelight hour for the immune system. It's time to wake up and get into the shower. Have you tried a ‘contrast shower’? When splashes of warm water are switched with cold? By the way, any medications and supplements, taken at this hour, are absorbed much better than at any other time of the day.
