Kiwi for Insomnia??

Eating kiwifruit an hour before bed has been shown to improve both sleep quality and quantity, according to researchers at Taiwan’s Taipei Medical University:
After 4 weeks of kiwi consumption (2 kiwi fruit eaten 1 hour before bed), researchers found significant improvements to several measures of sleep:

People fell asleep more quickly. Sleep onset latency—the amount of time it takes to fall asleep after going to bed—decreased by 35.4%.

People slept more soundly. Waking time after sleep onset—the amount of time spent in periods of wakefulness after initially falling asleep—fell 28.9%.

Sleep quality improved. Scores on a standardized sleep quality questionnaire—where lower scores mean better sleep—decreased by 42.4%.

Sleep efficiency—a measurement of the amount of time spent actually sleeping compared to the total amount of time spent in bed—increased by 5.41%.

People slept more overall. Total sleep time among the volunteers increased by 13.4%.

What’s behind the possible benefits of kiwi to sleep? There are a couple of characteristics of the fruit that may make it a strong sleep-promoting food: its high antioxidant levels and its high serotonin levels.

Proper sleep also helps with weight loss!!

Thank you for all for allowing my things to be passed to so many!
