Body Clock (Body Clock) is the cycle of the working system in the human body. That is responsible for regulating the functions of various systems in the body such as waking, sleep, secretion of hormones, metabolism, behavior, immune system.

At present, many professions can affect the life behavior of each person. Traced to slotxo the clock of life, especially awakening Sleeping, resting, and eating Resulting in various health problems

Sleep adjustment is one way to adjust the clock in life. By going to bed and waking up at the time (sleep before 10 PM) and getting enough sleep 7-8 hours.

In 2017, three scientists, Jeffery Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery. Molecular mechanisms in organisms that control and drive the Circadian Rhythm (internal biological clock) system, with research found that nearly 80% of the genes in the body work according to the biological clock system on a daily basis. Change the behavior that affects the biological clock system Will result in various diseases

 

The world today is growing continuously. As a result, many businesses and professions may have a very little impact on people's living habits. Traced to the clock of life, especially awakening Sleeping, resting, and eating Resulting in various health problems Expressed more easily than a person with a normal life watch.

 

Did you know that there is a hidden biological clock in our body?

Dr. Phaisit Trakulkongsamut, MD. Physician specializing in anti-aging and rehabilitation, Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital stated that the biological clock is the cycle of the human body system. That is responsible for regulating the functions of various systems in the body such as waking, sleep, secretion of hormones, metabolism, behavior, immune system. If we live in opposition to the biological clock, the different systems in the body will fluctuate. Until bringing about abnormal symptoms and various diseases, especially obesity And diabetes

 

Biological clock position in the body

There are mainly 2 positions:

 

1st position: Central Brain clock, located on the brain Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN) of the brain called the Hypothalamus.

 

Position 2: Peripheral Clocks, which are distributed in organs including muscle, fat cells, liver, pancreas and digestive tract, receiving signals from the Central Brain Clock through the nervous system and hormones.

The most important factor in regulating the biological clock is light, because light in relation to time of day It is passed through the retina (Retina) into the brain in the Central Brain Clock (SCN), after which it is distributed to Peripheral Clocks such as muscle, fat cells, liver, pancreas and the digestive tract.

 

What auses the biological clock to fluctuate?

Older age As people get older, there are a number of factors that cause biological clocks to begin to “distort”. Degeneration of the brain hypothalamus A decrease in the hormone melatonin in the bloodstream And the response to light decreases If the elderly begin to have dementia symptoms or need to go to a nursing home, they will also reduce the perception and response to the life clock. So we often see The elderly at home Often a condition called "Sleeping at the wrong time" often

 

Occupations that do not correspond to normal sleep hours

New Normal that cannot manage work time and sleep. Due to work from home (work from home), the use of electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablet computers or iPads that give the blue glow is too stimulating. Often eat late meals Addicted to dramas or series until sleep deprivation

Not enough sleep, the biological clock is awkward Telomere risk short

Telomere is the tip of the DNA strand. Where dna is Human genetic code Telomere protects the DNA from being damaged prematurely. Or simply explained, telomere is like The plastic sheath covers the tip of the shoelace to prevent the shoelaces from loosening and breaking prematurely.

Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, Nobel Prize winner The authors of the importance of telomere say that telomere shrinks normally with increasing age, stress and risky behaviors such as staying up late or lacking sleep, which can affect both children and adults.

If our telomere is shorter than normal people Will allow us to enter a state of illness more easily and faster It has also been linked to degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular, Alzheimer's, diabetes and others.

Adjust the life clock For good health

Adjust your sleep by going to bed and waking up at the time (bed before 10pm) and getting enough sleep 7-8 hours for people who work at night. If unable to modify There should be at least 3 days a week to sleep normally. As for people who have problems with snoring Or have sleep apnea Will affect the quality of sleep a lot Should consult a specialist doctor

 

Adjust eating habits By eating as usual Not eating too much late meals (Should not eat after 2 pm) because of the risk of obesity in the future.

Exercise during the day Instead of exercising late at night This is because some people may experience insomnia after exercise. The appropriate time of exercise. Should be at least an hour away from meals if it is a heavy meal. Should be spaced 2-3 hours to wait for the body and enzymes. Adjust to normal first And for good health, exercise 15-30 minutes per day or 150 minutes.
