Getting a good night’s sleep is extremely important, as it’s the time when our bodies rest, recharge, relax, and repair any damage that’s been caused by inflammation, stress, or any other outside factor. 

Unfortunately, most people are living in a state of chronic sleep deprivation, which is known to potentially cause a plethora of health complications. Studies show increased chances of cardiovascular dysfunctions, hormonal disbalance, obesity, metabolic issues, diabetes type 2, and impairment of cognitive functions. These studies also link insufficient sleep to an increase in vehicular accidents as reaction time and focus aren’t in optimal ranges.  

Focusing on improving your sleeping habits and creating a healthy sleeping routine is crucial if you want to improve your health and wellbeing. Here are ten tips to help you out.

Almost all diseases known to humankind have one thing in common: inflammation. It’s the number one reaction in the human body that signals something out of order is going on. 

Whether it’s due to stress induced by exercise, a specific food that isn’t beneficial to your digestive system, or an unknown, harmful pathogen, inflammation shows up as a first sign for you to make a move and do something about it. 

Dealing with inflammation depends on a variety of factors, such as what caused it, whether or not it’s acute or chronic, is the reason behind it benign or harmful, and what side effects can prolonged inflammation impose on the body. These factors will determine whether or not you should act fast or implement slower anti-inflammatory techniques that will do better in the long run.

Vitamin D is one of the most important micronutrients in the human body. It’s also one of the least absorbent ones, leaving the majority of the population deficient. Proper supplementation and smart sun exposure are key to bringing our numbers to satisfying levels. But, what’s the best way to go about it and why? Here’s what we know. 

What is Vitamin D? 

Is it a vitamin, a hormone, or a combination of both? Officially, vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s prevalent in ultra-violet (UV) rays and our bodies mostly get it from sun exposure. It also exists in certain foods (naturally and added artificially through fortification) as well as dietary supplements. However, some experts like to refer to vitamin D as a hormone or a pre-hormone that stimulates the absorption of calcium by turning specific genes on and off.
