In a recent study conducted at the University of Rochester Medical Center, researchers discovered that during the sleep starts a process of cleaning the brain from harmful debris that accumulated during the day.
So, while we sleep our brain pumps spinal fluid with which it washes the waste in the circulatory system that is removed through the liver from the body.
Because this process requires a lot of energy, the brain has difficulties to perform this process during the day when it is active and overloaded with daily tasks. Therefore, harmful protein amyloid-beta (main culprit for Alzheimer’s) cleans the brain at night while we are sleeping.
