Are you sleeping TOO well? (Warning: It could be dangerous)
Maybe you think you’re one of the lucky ones.
Sure, everyone else seems to be struggling to get to sleep. But not you! You might find it pretty comforting that you get a solid 8 hours a night.
And if you get more, that’s even better, right?
When it comes to sleep, MORE isn’t always BETTER.
In many ways, it’s WORSE.
It’s often a desperate cry from your body that something isn’t quite right – something that needs attention, stat – and I’ll let you in on what it means and how to fix it in a moment.
First, new research reveals yet again the unexpected danger of “too much” sleep.
The sweet spot for sleep and brain health is exactly where it is for everything else. It varies a little, from person to person, but for the most part it’s right around 7-8 hours per night.
If you don’t hit that zone, your cognitive performance starts to suffer, and it can suffer BIG.
People who sleep too much see dips in function by just about every major measure, with the biggest plunges coming in verbal skills and reasoning.
In some cases, the cognitive problems of poor sleep – whether it’s too much OR too little – can equal the damage of nearly a decade of aging!
That’s not the only risk, of course.
The right levels of sleep are essential to rejuvenating your immune system, helping cells to repair damage and sweeping toxins out of the brain.
And, again, studies show problems in all three not only in folks who miss out on sleep, but also in people who sleep too much.
Long sleepers even have a higher risk of death!
That’s one risk you don’t want to fall asleep on.
And if you’re sleeping too much yourself, consider this your wakeup call.
There are three main causes of “hypersominia,” a.k.a. too much sleep.
One is medication, so if you’re taking anything talk to a doc about your other options.
The second is an undiagnosed illness or infection, so obviously make sure you’ve had a physical and some blood work done.
The third is one of the most common undiagnosed hormone conditions in the nation today: adrenal fatigue.
It’s when your adrenal glands burn out from years of stress, work and exposure to toxins.
That leads to the kind of life-sapping fatigue that sends you to bed for 9, 10 or even 11 hours at time… and even then, you might still need a nap in the middle of the day!
But you can fight back.
An all-natural formula built around rhodiola and ashwagandha can give your adrenals what they need to reverse to toll of stress and toxins, restoring your energy and fighting off all of the risks exposed in the new study.
