Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/07/2015 -- Sleep deprivation causes people to become unfocused, groggy, and sluggish. It encourages one to feel exhausted and see the compelling need to get a nap. Unfortunately, there are many other disadvantages of lack of sleep, and one is that it poses serious risks to health.
There are several repercussions to not having enough sleep, such as increasing the risk of stroke, obesity, diabetes, full memory loss, bone damage, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Individuals who don't get sufficient amounts of sleep are often more susceptible to suffering from these conditions.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, an average adult needs to have around seven to nine hours of sleep every night. Unfortunately, most people don't come close to achieving this requirement.
What makes this even more alarming is that there are serious health consequences ahead of individuals who get little sleep every night. Little means having six hours of sleep or less on a daily basis.
According to researchers, there are over 700 genetic changes that typically take place in the body of individuals who have too little sleep for one week. These changes could potentially play a role in the development of various conditions such as obesity and heart problems.
The good news is that there is a natural ingredient called curcumin that is believed to be helpful for helping people sleep better. Curcumin is a phytochemical ingredient found in the medicinal spice turmeric.
"Curcumin contains therapeutic ingredients such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
There are several reasons why curcumin is believed to improve the quality and quantity of people's sleep. Curcumin is believed to offer hundreds of health benefits and has been widely studied by many of the world's renowned researchers.
An animal-based study was conducted by scientists to determine the effects of curcumin on sleep. It was found that curcumin has succeeded in protecting the 72 hour sleep-deprived mice from certain symptoms associated with sleep deprivation.
The scientists also added that when the curcumin extract treatment was administered for five days, it helped prevent oxidative damage, anxiety-like effects, and locomotor impairment. Taking curcumin supplements may be helpful for individuals who don't get enough sleep.
Today, curcumin supplements are widely believed to be a safe, effective, and healthy preventive measure against a range of ailments. There are curcumin supplements that contain a black pepper extract called BioPerine. This ingredient is believed to be helpful in increasing curcumin absorption inside the body (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I).
