Do you hate the early morning stiffness in your body? Can you not get up quickly even if though you’re awake? Is it one of the reasons you’re not a morning person? Apparently, you are not to be blamed and this is not something rare. Science now has the answer to this common phenomenon. According to a research, the body has a protein that is responsible for the annealed pain in your back. Researchers believe it’s the protein called ‘Cryptochrome’ that affects your limbs resulting in that stiff as board behaviour and ultimately, to your inactive mode.
Cryptochrome represses inflammatory pathways leading to inflammatory arthritis and disrupting your biological clock.
Disruption of the circadian clock has been an aggravating factor associated with a range of human inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, said the paper. This arthritis is the primary reason for the twinge in your body.
These inflammatory pathways make symptoms like back pain, stiffness common when you wake up. The researchers have hopes of finding anti-inflammatory drugs soon so that this behvaior can be monitored and regulated. Moreover, the scientists are also trying to figure out the time of the day during which secretion of these proteins are at peak.
The study that appeared in the FASEB Journal pins on finding significant developments in the coming time.
