Products for Health
Our poor nutrition, lack of exercise, high paced lifestyle, and artificial lights contribute to too many of today’s sleep problems, and our health. That’s why the CDC says “Insufficient Sleep is a Public Health Epidemic.“ Numerous studies show that 40% of adults sleep less than the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep and 30% sleep less than 6 hours per night, and a recent National Geographic documentary, Sleepless in America, showed that it’s even worse for adolescents, saying 70% of them are sleep deprived.
These sleep deficiencies affect “our mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety” (per NIH). Intelligent Sleep addresses these problems by promoting sleep wellness and brain fitness through natural & holistic products & services, education, and coaching.

More on Why Sleep is Important
Sustained sleep deficiency is linked to increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke, because sleep is involved in the healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Your immune system relies on sleep to stay healthy, and it’s in deep sleep that the body produces growth and hunger hormones. Short sleep contributes to obesity and diabetes, as well as cancer. And deep sleep is when cerebral fluid circulates to remove toxins and amyloid plaques that build up during daytime cell metabolism. New research has tied sleep deficiency with neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease, as well as increased risk of depression, suicide, and risk-taking behavior. Clearly, sleep plays an important role in your physical and mental health.
