THE SLEEP CHALLENGE
We are a sleep deprived society. Less than one third of American adults get the recommended seven hours of sleep per night.
Active people, in particular, are negatively affected by poor sleep, resulting in:
Slowed reaction time
Increased chance of injury
Lengthened recovery time
Lower energy and endurance
Higher stress levels
THE STAGES OF SLEEPSHOP MOLECULE
Stage 1 | Restfulness
Floating in and out of consciousness
Stage 2 | Light Sleep
Onset of sleep
Disengagement from surroundings
Breathing and heart rate slow
Core body temperature (CBT) decreases
Stage 3 | Slow Wave Sleep
Deepest stage of sleep and hardest from which to wake
Brain waves slow to become delta waves
Blood pressure drops
Breathing becomes slower, deeper, more rhythmic
Eyes and body are still
In this stage, body experiences the most recovery and restoration
Stage 4 | REM Sleep
First occurs about 90 minutes after falling asleep and recurs about every 90 minutes
Eyes dart back and forth (Rapid Eye Movement – REM), heart rate and blood pressure increase
Breathing becomes fast, irregular, and shallow
Brain is most active and dreams occur
Important for learning and memory – brain consolidates and processes information from the day before
SLOW WAVE SLEEP IS ESSENTIAL FOR RECOVERY
CELL DIVISION AND REGENERATION
Because the brain is less active during SWS, more blood is available for muscles. Extra oxygen and nutrients travel through the body facilitating healing and recovery. Also during this sleep stage, the pituitary gland releases growth hormones which stimulate muscle, tissue, and bone growth and repair. Prolactin is released to deliver aid to sore joints.
The body regulates cortisol (stress hormone) during SWS. Cortisol enables the body to digest glucose. The metabolization of glucose into fuel is essential for endurance – especially for activity > 90 minutes.
IMPROVED HEALTH & WELLBEING
A good night’s sleep with ample time in SWS aids in the production of hormones that spur appetite satiety so you feel less hungry the next day. Stroke risk is reduced as is high-blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. SWS rest strengthens immunity and boosts memory, learning, and focus.
ACHIEVE SLOW WAVE SLEEP
Many factors can influence SWS quality and duration, including: stress, diet, alcohol and drug intake, among others. However, one of the most important environmental factors is core body temperature regulation.
Our body is less able to regulate temperature while we sleep, so it is important to control it externally.
A lowered CBT is necessary for sleep onset and for restful SWS
Help your body at rest to stay at rest. Increase time spent in SWS by creating a sleep environment that draws heat away from the body, reducing CBT. Other mattress options do not provide enough airflow and heat transfer for optimal SWS. MOLECULE does.
Maximum body recovery and performance depend upon sufficient Slow Wave Sleep. MOLECULE mattresses are designed to get you the sleep you need.
MOLECULE’s precision design, engineering, and materials form a unique sleep system that maximizes airflow. The layers work together to provide optimal comfort and support along with efficient heat transfer technology that promotes a significant reduction in core body temperature. Research shows this cooling leads to increased time spent in slow wave sleep. More time in this sleep stage has been proven to aid muscle recovery and the production of important hormones. The MOLECULE mattress is ideal for anyone striving to maximize performance.”
