Woke up feel­ing achy? Here’s why

Healthy Woman - - HEALTHY LIFE -

Morn­ing sore­ness or rigid limbs hap­pen be­cause the body’s nat­u­ral painkillers haven’t kicked in yet. Ac­cord­ing to new re­search, while you’re sleep­ing, the body’s bi­o­log­i­cal clock sub­dues anti-in­flam­ma­tory proteins us­ing a pro­tein called cryp­tochrome. This de­lays symp­toms un­til you wake up, mak­ing you feel worse once you have to get up and move around. Sci­en­tists be­lieve that un­der­stand­ing the find­ings of this re­search could aid in the cre­ation of more ef­fec­tive arthri­tis med­i­ca­tion.
