Chronobiology is the study of the body’s internal clock mechanisms. Research on this topic has become more popular in recent years due to the fact that some times in the day have been proven to be better than others for taking medicine; the way that it is absorbed into the body, the way that the body recognizes it, and how it affects its internal processes. Circadian rhythm, the 24-hour clock that your body is used to for day-night activities, helps regulate and dictate these factors.

Of course, if your genes are more prone to having these symptoms, you’re more likely to have one of these episodes.
