Heart diseases, heart attacks, strokes, are often linked to sleep problems!


What you think may be a simple snoring problem can lead to serious health concerns. Even death!

Adequate sleep is vital to your overall health. No less than water, air and food. It’s simply crucial to allow your body and brain to have the time it needs to re-boot every day. If you’re not getting enough sleep due to snoring, you need a snoring remedy.

When you sleep, your heart slows itself down and it relieves the stress you’ve gathered throughout your day. Your body needs time to decompress and gather energy to face another morning. Your blood pressure drops. Your body and brain refresh itself. You decrease the severity of age-related diseases. You can control illnesses such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes and memory loss.

Impaired sleep can harm your heart by putting undue stress and strain on the muscle. Cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, strokes and in extreme cases, death, have all been linked, to sleep debt. Chronic sleep loss hinders your body’s ability to perform even basic metabolic functions, including regulating your hormones.

Snoring is often a pre-cursor to a more severe problem, know as sleep apnea. Those afflicted experience a blockage in their breathing airway, without even realizing it. This blockage deprives them of getting oxygen regularly throughout the night. Sleep apnea has a huge affect on heart disease. Apnea sufferers have an increase in developing high blood pressure – a major risk factor in developing heart disease and strokes.

The effects of sleep deprivation can lead to severe health concerns and an untimely death.Sleep deficiencies can negatively affect your brain function, which increases your stress hormones and leads to depression.
