What to do for A Healthy Heart? Going To Bed Between This Golden Hour Might Cut Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases

New Delhi, November 10th: A good and healthy sleep is the prerequisite for a healthy life. But I’ve always wondered what the best time to go to bed. British researchers have deciphered the correct bedtime to protect you from cardiovascular disease. According to a Recent study Going to bed at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. has been shown to be helpful in protecting people from heart disease. The study suggests that there is a possible link between SOT (Sleep Onset Timing) and the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, especially in women.

The investigation was carried out on over 88,000 people. The participants were between 43 and 79 years old. During the study, data on participants’ bedtime and wake-up time were collected over a period of seven days. An accelerometer was used to collect these. The report states, “The group with SOTs between 10:00 PM and 10:59 PM had the lowest incidence rate of CVD and was chosen as the reference group.” How do you naturally sleep better at night?

The report added that most cases of cardiovascular disease were found in people who started sleeping after midnight. It states, “Our results are in line with an earlier study that found late bedtime (> 23:00) on weekdays associated with an increased risk of congestive heart failure.” The study also suggested that the possible link between sleep time and heart disease is stronger in women than in men. “In men, only SOTs <10 p.m. remained significant, but with little associated risk," it said.
