Not sleeping well? Your immune system could be to blame.

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you find yourself frequently falling ill or feeling under the weather? Well, those two things could actually be related! Your immune system is more active at night, which is why melatonin, your sleep hormone, is associated with protecting you from viruses, cancer and more. Good sleep is empowering to your immune system.
