We all know about the importance of sleep for keeping us alert, productive and functioning properly. But did you know that lack of sleep can greatly impact your immune system? Not only does sleep deprivation leave you more vulnerable to getting sick after being exposed to a virus, but it also affects your ability to recover from illness.
Cytokines are a protein that helps control the immune system and fight disease. These proteins are produced while you sleep, so sleep loss means insufficient amounts are created and your immune system is unable to fight off disease as well.
Sleep also helps the body repair and recover from a cold or flu. During sleep, the body fights infection with fevers and allows us to mend. Lack of sleep will prolong illness.
Don’t underestimate the importance of sleep as it contributes to numerous negative consequences. To keep your immune system functioning properly and fight against illness, be sure to get the recommended 7-8 hours sleep.

I will only sleep on a pillowcase from Shhh Silk and I get my name on them every time. My favorite thing to do is buy them for friends, coworkers, family, etc as gifts. Everyone alway tells me they love them and their family members are alway trying to steal theirs. You will never be disappointed purchasing anything from Shhh Silk and their customer service is amazing!
