Scientists may have identified the perfect bedtime to protect your heart — 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Per NBC News, scientists recently reviewed data from 88,000 adults who tracked their sleep patterns for six years.

They found that there was a 12% greater risk for heart disease in those who went to sleep from 11 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. There was a 25% higher risk of developing the cardiovascular disease for those who fell asleep past midnight. There was a 24% decreased risk in those who fell asleep before 10 p.m.
