When talking about the dangers of staying up late, the “biological rhythm that destroys the body and the rest of the day and night” resonates with many people. But do you really understand the biological rhythm? Does the biological rhythm only exist in our law of work and rest? Let’s take a look at the magical rhythm of biological rhythms.
What is a biological rhythm?
Biological rhythm means that all life activities have periodic life activities that follow certain rules. So how are these rhythms formed? Simply put, the biological rhythm is controlled by rhythm genes in the body. Rhythm genes, through their fluctuations in expression levels, cause organisms to exhibit different states at different times. Researchers generally believe that the main influencing factors of biological rhythm are time and light.
Classification and specific performance of biological rhythms
There are two common classification methods for the biological rhythm of the human body. In terms of effect, biological rhythm can be divided into physical, emotional and intellectual rhythm; from the action cycle, biological rhythm can be divided into high frequency, intermediate frequency and low frequency rhythm. The period of the high frequency rhythm is shorter than one day, such as the cardiac cycle, the respiratory cycle, etc., in minutes; the period of the intermediate frequency rhythm is one day, such as body temperature change, blood pressure fluctuation, hormone secretion cycle, and blood cell number; The month is a cycle, such as a woman’s menstrual cycle.
Among them, the IF rhythm with a one-day cycle is also the biological clock we are familiar with, which is closely related to human health. And “the biological rhythm that will destroy the human body and work at night and night” also means that the day and night will destroy the human body clock.
The biological rhythm is in our bodies all the time, and never stops.
Application of biological rhythm in health care
The biological rhythm determines whether the biological function of the body is normal and has a wide range of effects on the body, including pulse, blood pressure, respiration, hormones, and enzymes. Therefore, biorhythm can be applied to the health care field, not only to make health care resources more utilized, but also to allow people to accept higher levels of medical services. For example, due to the existence of biological rhythms, the body’s sensitivity and responsiveness to physical and chemical factors are different, which also provides a basis for more accurate targeted medical services, which is reflected in judging the trend of the disease and judging the time of medication, recuperation and health care. Time and so on.
Biological Rhythm and Nobel Prize
The contribution of biological rhythms to the cause of human science cannot be underestimated. In 2017, Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young discovered the molecular control mechanism of the circadian rhythm and were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. They used Drosophila as a biological model to isolate a gene that controls the rhythm of the protein, which is expressed at night and decreases during the day.
