The key principles of this article are :
- Sleep boosts the production of your white blood cells
- White blood cells recognise and neutralise foreign and dangerous elements entering your body
- Completing at least 4 sleep cycles enhances the production and release of a protein which faciliates cell to cell communication and direct cells towards the infection
