In brief: Sleep immune power

One night awake till 3am can reduce immune power by 50% the day after. If body is weak, immune is weakened.
Sleep is for all body systems rest and recuperation. Immune is part of whole body harmony. All body functions are in an absolute inter-dependency. Eat well balanced meals, exercise regularly, sleep 7-8h/d, good social life insure minimal health problem when older.
