According to a recent research study published in the Journal for Neuroscience, lack of sleep can be detrimental effects on the brain in the long term.

 

Modern life means working long hours and being always connected to electronic devices and this affects sleep negatively.

 

The research study was conducted on mice who were deprived of sleep during a number of consecutive nights, resulting in a 25% loss of brain cells. Although more research is needed on the effects of sleep loss in humans, it is widely agreed that sleep loss is related to cognitive damage.

 

Good sleep is essential for long term health and also for successful weight management.
