Going to bed turns out not only to be good for your mood. Research shows that it is also good to prevent your cold. We explain why you should go to bed more often to prevent your cold.
catch a cold
Yup, it’s that time of year again when everyone has a cold. We are all sneezing, snotty noses and coughing en masse, but how do you get rid of that annoying cold? At some point we are done with those throat sweets, nasal spray and tea.
Did you know that a hot session in bed can give your immune system a big boost? This has everything to do with unfamiliar cells your body responds to – which should be welcomed and which should be opposed? With the production of antibodies as a result. Women who regularly go to bed generally have more of those defensive antibodies in their bodies. And it is precisely those antibodies that ensure that you can prevent a cold or make it pass faster.
This way you can get rid of that annoying tickly cough in no time
More rolling balls, less snot noses; conclude researchers at Wilkes University. For the study, they took a saliva sample from no less than 115 students and checked it for immunoglobulin A. They also asked the students questions about their sexual activity and it turned out that those who dive between the sheets twice a week have about thirty percent more of those antibodies and thus a smaller chance of catching a cold. If this isn’t reason enough to go to bed tonight, we don’t know what is.
