A Certain Bedtime Improves Blood Sugar?

Dear Reader, 

We all know just how important sleep is for our health. 

It’s your body’s time to rest and repair. That’s why getting quality sleep is crucial to staying healthy.  

But there’s more to sleep than just quality… The actual time you go to bed is just as important!   

Especially if you’re diabetic or struggle with blood sugar control. New research has discovered that going to bed at this certain time could be a game-changer when it comes to your blood sugar… 

Early to bed and early to rise, has always been brilliant advice 

But ever since we had electric lightsthen television, then the internet, and now phones…. It makes it difficult to bed early.  

BUT there’s good reason to take that old sage advice  

A new study, published in The British Medical Journal, found that people who are night owls (someone who goes to bed late and gets up late) have much different levels of physical activity than those people who wake up early 

The differences in activity levels translate into higher body mass index (BMI), more body fat, and worse blood sugar control 

Which is why getting to bed early puts you in a better position to control your blood sugar and prevent diabetes. 

Diabetes is no joke, it hits about one in eleven adults worldwide – and it leads to a lot of pain (from inflammation, to a greater risk of heart disease, kidney disease, and Alzheimer’s…).  

One of the big ways to get to sleep soon after the sun goes down is to turn off everything electrical in your home – especially the screens 

I personally like to backpack a lot and it is rare (even for night owls) to stay up at night without their phones or lights around.  

BUT if you just can’t go to bed early, make sure you make exercise a big priority in your life and get outside — for the sunshine — as often as you can.  

If you need help falling asleep, here are some things you can try:  

Dr. Scott’s Peaceful Sleep Program:  

  • White noise: Many people use a fan or a white noise generator to drown out house noises and help them sleep. You’ll find plenty of white noise apps in your smart phone’s app store, or you can buy a white noise machine online.  
  • Be consistent: Try to go to bed and wake up around the same time. Establishing a schedule and keeping it helps your body prepare for sleep.   
  • Use herbs at night: There are many herbs that can help you sleep, including chamomile, passionflower, hops, valerian, and others. You can take them as a tea or in pill form.  
  • 5HTP: 5 hydroxytryptophan or 5H TP is a Nero transmitter, a brain chemical, that helps increase mood enhancing serotonin. It also helps to increase melatonin in the body. People supplementing with 5H TP have shown can prove sleep quality better mood decrease pain perception and even improve digestion. 
  • Melatonin: One of the best ways to help sleep is to use melatonin. We tend to produce less melatonin, a vital hormone, as we grow older. You’ll find melatonin at any vitamin or supplement shop.
