People with sleep disorders usually have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep throughout the night and they sometimes wake up too early in the morning. Fortunately, there are ways to help. First, if you’re dreaming of a good night’s sleep, you should take a look at your nutrient intake…
The secret to a good night’s sleep could also lie in kiwi fruits… Researchers at Taiwan’ Tapei Medical University* studied the effects of kiwi consumption on sleep. The study included 24 persons who all experienced some form of disrupted sleep. For 4 weeks, the volunteers ate 2 kiwi fruits 1 hour before bed. The results of the studies have shown significant improvements: people fell asleep more quickly, they also slept more soundly and their sleep quality also improved.
So why eating kiwi fruits on a daily basis is linked to substantial improvements to both sleep quality and sleep quantity? According to researchers, kiwi fruit high antioxidants and serotonin levels are involved. Serotonin actually plays an important role in sleep because the body uses it to synthesize melatonin that helps regulating the body’s biological clock.
