The Importance of Sleep and Recovery

Sleep is about recovery, both for your body and your brain. In the first hour and a half of deep sleep, you release human growth hormone and begin the process of resetting your adrenals.

The brain doesn’t have a lymphatic system to flush toxins. It goes through a process of washing itself with cerebrospinal fluid four times a night to cleanse itself of toxins.

Without deep restful sleep these processes cannot happen. Sleep varies between individuals but it’s well known that 7 hours seems to be the magic number. Sleeping longer may be fine on occasion but it doesn’t make up for missing sleep on a regular basis.

The best sleep is consistent deep sleep. If you’re hitting the pillow and not stirring until you wake up, it doesn’t matter if it’s 6, 7 or 8, you’ll be fine. When it comes to sleep, quality beats quantity.

  1. Hi Linda,
    If you feel you really need PQQ, the best way to get it is through a supplement. There are many companies bottling it. It all comes from the same source so buy the most economical one. Take it with food. You don’t need more than 20-30mg per day. I find it works best with CQ10 since they are very similar nutrients and if you are CQ10 deficient you won’t make it up with PQQ.

    I like PQQ myself and think it’s a great addition to TianChi.

    Blessings,
    Roger
