DID YOU KNOW:
Getting a good night’s rest is essential for your immune system and better bone health. The body undergoes an array of healthy processes during sleep including bone remodeling during which old bone tissue is removed and new bone tissue is formed.
A study published in November 2019 by the Women’s Health Initiative showed that women who self reported less than 5 hours of sleep a night, had significantly lower bone mass compared to women who slept 7 hours a night. The difference they observed is equivalent to one year of aging.
