(NaturalNews) When researching why people sleep, researchers from the Mexican Metropolitan Autonomous University (UAM) have found that chronic sleep loss may cause neurotoxic molecules to be transported into the central nervous system.

Once in the central nervous system, these molecules interfere with the function of neurons.According to Beatriz Gomez Gonzalez, head of the scientific project, this occurs due to an alteration in the blood-brain barrier. This portion of the central nervous system is responsible for protecting the brain from neurotoxic agents.

However, when the brain is deprived of sleep, the joints vessels in the blood-brain barrier become degraded. This allows some toxic elements to cross the barrier and reach brain tissue.

Once inside the brain, some of these nerve agents may affect neuron function or even kill the neurons. For example, monosodium glutamate, a flavoring agent found in many processed foods, can overstimulate neurons, resulting in neuron death.

Furthermore, the researchers at UAM found that some medications, such as second-generation antihistamines may permeate into the brain tissue when the blood-brain barrier becomes weakened.

Manufacturers of second-generation antihistamines and antibiotic medications test their products to ensure they do not affect brain function. However, when the blood-brain barrier permeability has been affected by sleep deprivation, these chemicals may be able to impact the central nervous system, resulting in unusual effects such as behavioral changes, drowsiness, and even neuron death.

A second phenomenon that the UAM researchers found during the study that sleep deprivation also increased the number of pinocytotic vesicles in cells. This may also increase the risk of neurotoxic elements entering the brain tissue. According to the study, animals that had induced sleeplessness developed up to three times the vesicles compared to animals who had received a normal amount of sleep.


Three things to do immediately:

1. Limit intake of toxic elements in your diet! You may not be able to rid yourself of all toxins, but knowingly ingesting food filled with toxins is inviting a health problem.

2. Take supplements that inhibit toxins. Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has just released ground-breaking supplements that are proven in lab tests to eliminate food-born toxins, especially the highly dangerous heavy metals found in the so many common foods like rice.

Check out the new supplements here. What's so important about these particular supplements is that you take them with your meals to eliminate heavy metals as you digest food. Learn more.

3. Sleep better. Now, this is easy to suggest, but nearly impossible to achieve when your overactive brain won't cooperate late at night. If this is the case with you, then you very likely suffer from an overactive Default Mode Network (DMN).

The DMN is the brain's mental autopilot. When overactive, it churns out spinning or obsessive thoughts that cause stress, body tension and restlessness.

Under these circumstances, sleep is impossible. Learn to turn OFF your DMN through simple awareness exercises proven via fMRI scans to turn off the DMN, calming your mind and body. Check out the iNLP Center's Sleep Switch Program here.

Here's to your restful sleep and freedom from toxins...
