Sleep plays a major role in boosting the reproduction of cells that are involved in brain repair. It helps our body in flushing the toxic metabolites and also repairs our DNA. When we are asleep, our body conserves energy and uses it for the repairing process. Plus, it also helps to sharpen memories and improves problem-solving and decision-making skills. To allow all these functions, taking 7-8 hours of daily sleep is recommended. The sleep cycle can be severely disrupted by the issue of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. This can prevent your body from getting enough oxygen. If you snore loudly and feel exhausted after a full night’s sleep, you may have this condition.
