to treat insomnia. One is banana. Insomnia usually affects adults and the elderly. Because it is 44% of older adults experience sleep problems. Sleep less than 6-7 hours per day had a bad habit of many people.
If you are one of those people who have trouble sleeping, try to eat bananas at night to help you sleep more soundly. Research from the University of Wisconsin who has been published in the Journal of Neuroscience in 2007 showed that the genes that control the flow of potassium (potassium) into the cell is required to maintain normal sleep.
Banana is one of the examples of fruits that contain lots of potassium or potassium. The potassium found in bananas to a high of 400 mg is equivalent to a glass of orange juice or steamed potatoes. Although the research was conducted on fruit flies, but researchers say that there is a strong implication between humans and fruit flies, as it has the same genes controlling potassium.
Not only makes you sleep better, other studies have shown that eating a banana at night can help treat the disorder sleep apnea (difficulty breathing disorders during sleep). People who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may experience repeated choking when the throat suddenly closed while sleeping. This sleep disorder can also be life threatening.
Researchers from the University of New England in New South Wales says a banana can help overcome the disorder. Initial studies showed that the phospholipids (fatty acids in bananas) can remain active in the mouth for six hours, which is tantamount to a satisfactory sleep period). Phospholipids are known to keep the throat open so as to avoid choking during sleep and help OSA patients get quality sleep. "Our initial findings suggest that bananas may offer a relatively inexpensive alternative and delicious as part of the treatment for patients with obstructive sleep apnea," said Dr. Tom Van der Touw, one peneliti.just by applying a banana peels, Because it will react with the enzymes contained therein
