Get more sleep to stay out of a nursing home


Do you want to remain independent as you age? Most people do, which is why you should take a natural anti-aging supplement and an herbal insomnia supplement from Herbal Groups. Why the insomnia supplement, you may ask? According to a recent study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, fragmented or interrupted sleep could be a sign that you're heading for a nursing home when you're older.

"Sleep disturbances are common in older people," said researcher Adam Spira, Ph.D. "Our results show that in community-dwelling older women, more fragmented sleep is associated with a greater risk of being placed in a nursing home or in a personal care home.

Study participants who reported spending the shortest amount of time each night actually sleeping were three times more likely to eventually be placed in a nursing home than those who got sufficient rest each night.

This isn't the first study to highlight how important healthy sleep habits are for people who want to stay sharp as they age. Previous studies have connected interrupted sleep with declines in cognitive function in older adults.

Therefore, if you have trouble sleeping at night be sure to take an herbal insomnia supplement such as Restalex PM to help you get more rest and promote healthy aging.
