📚INCREASES MELATONIN LEVELS:⁣⁣⁣
Exceptionally high melatonin concentrations (227–233 μg/g) have been found in four different varieties of Pistachio nuts (Pistacia vera L.) (Oladi et al., 2014); they are the highest values reported for any plant organ to date.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
✅CONTAINS POTASSIUM:⁣⁣⁣
Potassium plays a key role in regulating REM sleep and pistachios are a rich source of potassium (Dreher et al., 2012).⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
✅CONTAINS B6:⁣⁣⁣
Vitamin B6 is an essential co-factor for the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, and subsequently melatonin. This will also improve sleep. Pistachios are a rich source of B6 (Jones et al., 2011). ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
⚡️EXTRA BONUS:⁣⁣⁣
Pistachio Nut Consumption Increases Heart Rate Variability (higher = better for health), and Reduces Blood Pressure in Well‐Controlled Type 2 Diabetes: a Randomized Trial (Sander et al., 2014). ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
💥TAKEAWAY:⁣⁣⁣
Consuming pistachios after dinner, although at least 2 hours away from sleep, may present as a great ‘late night snack’ to help improve your sleep quality! ⁣⁣⁣
