Vitamin Zzz is Important for your Child

Why a Sturdy Amount of Vitamin Zzz is Important for your Child

Yes, getting your little one to bed early is the best way to get some peace & quiet, but did you know that Vitamin Zzz may also help your child fight obesity, avoid colds and, believe or not, succeed in school!

Bathe, brush, bedtime story and snooze! Pediatric researchers have found that a sufficient amount of shut eye is as consequential and important as a healthy diet and balanced amount of daily physical activity. When kids get the sleep they need, they enjoy a lower risk of unhealthy weight gain, developing diabetes as well fewer learning problems and attention issues. Medical scholars have likened a minimum of 10 hours of sleep to a therapeutic flushing out disease-causing toxins and rejuvenation of brain cells.

Here’s a quick list of sleep benefits that will convince you to get your child to bed even earlier than you do now:

  1. Sleep promotes growth: Growth hormones are secreted mainly during hours of deep sleep
  2. Sleep is a major immune system support: During sleep, children (and adults) produce proteins known as cytokines, which the body relies on to fight infection, illness and stress. 
  3. Sleep aids focus and encourages a balanced temperament: For school-age kids, research has shown that adding as little as 30 minutes of extra sleep per night makes it easier for them to manage their moods and impulses so they can focus on schoolwork. 

To conclude, parents must read up on all the benefits (because there are way more than 3) of a proper sleep schedule for their children. It will shock you the amount and spectrum of problems a proper night’s sleep will remedy.
