How is your immune system affected by sleep?

Sleep can affect both innate immunity and adaptive immunity. Even when you are not injured or sick, your immune system works to fight off potential infections and restore strength to your body. Sleep also strengthens your immune memory and allows your immune system to remember how to recognize and react to harmful germs.

When you are sleeping, your breathing and muscle activity slow down. This frees up energy for the immune system to perform its duties. When you are deprived of sleep, you may have a less effective, or even a compromised immune system. Indeed, getting sufficient quality sleep can be an immunity booster.

Vaccines and adaptive immunity can be compromised by not having enough sleep

Vaccines introduce deactivated viruses into your body in order to teach your immune system to recognize and deal with it. When you lack sleep, your immune memory is less effective and your immune response is weaker. It may even make your body unprotected despite having been vaccinated. Studies have consistently shown that vaccines are less effective in adults who frequently fail to sleep seven hours per night.

Sleep is important for avoiding allergies

Allergies happen when your immune system reacts strongly against something is not supposed to affect your body. Having not enough sleep can increase the probability and intensity of allergies. For example, a study has shown that a lack of sleep increased the chance of an allergy attack by 45% in people with peanut allergies.
