Bedstar has just stumbled upon a great secret: sleep keeps you healthy! We’re quite relieved to be honest because as if this wasn’t already the case already we’d be out of business quicker than forty winks. Apparently, according to the Daily Mail, researchers have found out that defence against diseases works in a similar way to our memories - which is funny, because we’re sure we’ve read that somewhere before but we can’t quite put our finger on it.
Apparently information about germs is slammed into our Long Term Memory whilst we’re asleep - so if you’ve been dreaming about Cholera, now you know why. According to Jan Born - which when said quickly his name sounds like the French word for ‘ham’ - from the University of Tubingen - yeah, we’ve not heard of it too - our memories and our immune system process information in similar ways; I guess that is quite interesting I suppose.
The way it works is that our memories and our immune system initially process information in the same way - by transferring it from a short term store to a long term store; like putting your beloved heirlooms into storage - the kind of things you don’t really care about but you keep care of them anyway. Other things in our long term memory are important things like remembering to breathe - and you mustn't forget that.
Jan Born has also said something that supports his idea:
‘While it has been known for a long time that sleep supports long-term memory formation in the psychological domain, the idea that long-term memory formation is a function of sleep effective in all organismic systems is in our view entirely new.’
Basically, like most scientists, Jan wants to be the first person to discover this - that sleep is good for us. He repeats this by saying this is a ‘new development in sleep research and memory research.’ Jan, well done, you get the award for being the first person to actually say that sleep is good for us.
They’ve tried to prove this by seeing if we have more white blood cells in our system after a long night's sleep when previously vaccinated. The quick answer is that there was. Which proves that sleeping for us is good after being vaccinated.
So yeah, if you want a healthier immune system then sleep some more you ninny. If you’re only sleeping for a couple of hours a night then you’re going to be run down, knackered and more prone to feeling unwell. Why not buy a new bed so you can sleep better. Buy it from us. Bedstar. We’re the best.
