[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ow many hours do you sleep each night? One? Two?
Did you know that having a sleep disorder could cause your brain to age quickly? This makes you prone to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases?
Thus, having an afternoon nap could delay aging and decline of your brain.
Researchers from the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore studied adults who were in their 50s and over. What they found was astonishing.
They discovered a link between sleep disorder and rapid atrophy and cognitive decline.
Another study published in Sleep journal found out that people who slept a fewer hours showed that they have brain ventricle enlargement. The participants also showed a decline in their cognitive performance.
Other disorders associated with sleep disorder will include the following:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Weight gain
- Premature aging
