Why is a proper bedtime is important for your kids?

Getting your kids to bed early has more benefits than you may think. Research is proving that sleep can reduce your child’s risk of obesity and catching a cold as well as increase success in school.

 

Parents can generally tell when their kids aren’t getting enough sleep by their disposition in the morning and through the day, but research shows that sleep is also essential to health. Sleep is just as important as nutrition and exercise. It’s when the body heals cells and repackages neurotransmitters, chemicals which help your brain communicate with the rest of your body. Experts have recently been able to validate that sleep gives brain cells the chance to flush out disease-causing toxins as well.

 

On top of all this, while sleeping your body secretes growth hormones and so kids primarily grow while they sleep. Research into children with a lacking of growth hormone has shown that they sleep less than average. There is research that shows that an inadequacy of sleep can lead to weight problems. Children, starting at infancy, can become overweight from a lack of sleep. You produce proteins that are essential to fighting off infection, illness and stress. Too little sleep impacts the body’s ability to fight off germs.

In light of this, make sure with the school year you get your kids that Vitamin ZZZ they need in order to make this year great!
