Sleep

Sleep is an essential part of a healthy age and therefore of our vitality model. We sleep about a third of our lives. A good night's sleep can bring you a lot.

During the night your body will be able to recover. All the impressions of the day are processed and stored, your hormones are brought into balance, your body temperature and heart rate drop and we pay attention to cellular recovery.

While you sleep, other processes are (more) active than during the day, such as the immune system. A lack of sleep can have far-reaching consequences for your health and weight. The recommended sleep duration for adults is 7 to 9 hours, but some people have different needs (they require more or less sleep).
