Sleep and Gut Health

Our sleep is affected by several factors, such as our mental health and sleep hygiene. There is also growing evidence indicating a correlation between our gut health and sleep. A study showed how health implications caused by apnea or insomnia had affected an estimated 50 to 70 million adults in the US.

So how does sleep affect our gut health and vice versa?

An increased microbiome diversity in our gut has been found to be associated with longer sleep times and better sleep quality. Research has also shown that gut microbiome controls the amount of serotonin in our body. A healthy level of serotonin is important since this is used to produce melatonin, our bodys sleepy hormone. Hence, a healthy balanced diet is crucial for quality sleep.

Sleep deprivation can in turn cause detrimental changes to our gut microbiome, reducing certain beneficial bacteria strains. A compromised gut balance will then affect immunity and result in more health issues such as weight gains, poor complexion, low energy and moods.
