Circadian rhythms mark the natural cycle of change physical, mental and behavioral experienced by the body during a full day (24 hours). In humans already known 150 different circadian rhythms, but the most important for all mammals is the cycle wake-sleep, it refers to the part of the day we spent awake and hours for our sleep.
As we can see, along these 24 hours the body undergoes a series of changes and the main agent of this regulation is cyclical natural light caused by the rotation of the Earth and the Sun..
A clear example of how circadian rhythms affect our body's secretion of melatonin. Melatonin is the hormone responsible for controlling sleep cycles Y It occurs overnight, for the light prevents secretion. Light pollution and artificial lights which we surround ourselves today, not always act allow this hormone, altering our rest.
Circadian rhythms accompanying the human being lead throughout the evolutionary process and despite following common patterns, we can find different groups of people referring to circadian rhythms.
What does this mean?
