Sleep your way to a cleaner brain!

Skipping sleep? You might want to listen up then take a long nap. Research funded by the US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke found that the brain cleans itself while you’re asleep.

Fluid controlled by a system called the glymphatic system floods your brain while you’re taking a kip and removes toxic or damaging molecules associated with degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s that build up in your brain. So make sure you switch off and let your brain refresh itself.
