Tip 16. Habitually skimping on sleep may increase your risk for heart disease. In one study, researchers observed elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP)—an indicator of heart disease—in women who slept 5 or fewer hours compared to those who slept 9 or more hours.
Tip 17. With prolonged sleep deprivation, hallucinations may develop. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, sleep allows the neurons you use while you’re awake a chance to shut down and repair themselves. Without sleep, neurons may become so impaired that they begin to malfunction.
Tip 18. Vitamin B6 is needed to make melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone triggered by darkness, according to an article published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.
