To our previous generation, sleeping too much was either a sign of poor health or absolute laziness. But the recent studies tell otherwise.
It has come to be known that deep sleeping helps in deep cleaning of the brain! So all those toxic thoughts which might cause stress and disturbance in your sleep, you can actually sleep them off!
As per many researchers, the cerebrospinal fluid helps to flush out the toxins from the system, and this garbage cleaning is greatly aided by improved sleeping. The result of the study explains why animals and humans require a good night’s sleep.
If this study holds any merit, then it will change the face of medical science as we know it. It might be possible to explain the mysterious link between brain diseases and sleep disorders, such as Alzheimer’s.
To get further clarification of the process, a team of scientists discovered the cleaning process of the mice’s brain.
The results found that the system circulates cerebrospinal fluid throughout the brain, and in return, the nervous system pumps the fluids back into the brain, thereby removing the fluid from the brain at a swift pace.
But where does sleep fit in all this?
Well, according to the scientists, as a mouse went deep into sleep, the brain shrank, which made it easy for the fluid to flow freely.
However, when the animal wakes up, the brain cells enlarge, which obstructs the natural flow of the fluids. This fluid leaving the brain is full of waste products that are found between the spaces of the brain.
This is an essential process, according to doctors. If waste matter keeps on accumulating in the brain cells, then it can cause a lot of health hazards.
This is precisely why people find it difficult to think clearly after a sleepless night. Being sleep deprived for too long can also cause death among animals and humans.
