I have a secret here.
If you are struggling to get quality sleep, this could help you…
Eat 2 kiwis 90-120 minutes before bed.
Kiwifruit is rich in antioxidants, vitamins C and E, flavonoids, anthocyanins, and carotenoids.
It contains approximately twice the concentration of SEROTONIN as tomatoes (Feldman, 1985).
Serotonin is an end product of L-tryptophan metabolism, which is related to rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and its low levels may cause insomnia.
To see how kiwifruit can improve sleep, there was a study done in 2011.
Twenty-nine subjects, 5 males and 24 females, 20 to 55 years of age, participated in this study.
After 4 weeks of kiwifruit consumption, total sleep time and sleep efficiency were significantly increased (13.4% and 5.41%, respectively).
Waking time after sleep onset, and sleep onset latency were significantly decreased (42.4%, 28.9%, and 35.4%, respectively).
Kiwifruit consumption may improve sleep onset, duration, and efficiency in adults with self-reported sleep disturbances (Lin, Tsai, Fang & Liu, 2011).
Eat 2 kiwis 90-120 minutes before bed every day.
It takes just 5 minutes to do.
Do that every day and you’ll be on your way to improve the quality of your sleep.
