Sleep Facts
  • Two female reproductive hormones (follicle stimulating and luteinizing) are released during sleep.

  • The extra-hour of sleep received when clocks are put back at the start of daylight in Canada has been found to coincide with a fall in the number of road accidents.

  • The rate at which our kidneys filter waste slows down while we’re sleeping. This reduction in renal production is why that first morning urine is so concentrated.

  • Find yourself waking up just before your alarm goes off – this could be due to Adrenocorticotropin – a stress hormone responsible for waking some people up just before their alarms go off
