Rarely do adults who have slept soundly. Because it is up to 44 percent of older adults have trouble sleeping. Sleeping less than 6-7 hours per day has become a bad habit of many people.
If you’re one of people who experience difficulty sleeping, try to eat bananas at night to help you sleep more soundly.
Research from the University of Wisconsin that have been published in the Journal of Neuroscience in 2007 showed that the genes that control the flow of potassium (potassium) into the cells needed to maintain normal sleep.
Bananas are one example of fruits that contain lots of potassium or potassium. In the banana found that high potassium content of 400 mg which is equivalent to a glass of orange juice or steamed potatoes.
Although the study was conducted on fruit flies, but researchers say that there is a strong implication between humans and fruit flies, because it has the same genes controlling potassium.
Not only makes sleep more soundly, other studies show that eating a banana at night can help treat the disorder sleep apnea (trouble breathing disorders during sleep).
People who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may have choked many times when my throat closed suddenly in his sleep. Sleep disorders can also be life threatening.
Researchers from the University of New England in New South Wales says the banana can help overcome these disorders. The result of preliminary studies show that the phospholipids (fatty acids in bananas) can remain active in the mouth for six hours, which was tantamount to a satisfactory period of sleep.)
Phospholipids are known to keep the throat open so as to avoid choking during sleep and help patients with OSA get quality sleep.
“Our initial findings indicate that the banana can offer alternatives that are relatively inexpensive and delicious as part of treatment for patients with obstructive sleep apnea,” said Dr. Tom van der Touw, one of the researchers.
