Sleep is an important part to being healthy. In a study from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, they examines the correlation between how much a person sleeps and how diet changes can help improve the amount of sleep a person gets. For example, if you
- SLEEP up to 4 hrs/night, you can try infusing your diet with high antioxident foods along with eating red peppers or pink grapefruit to see if this will help you increase the number of hours you sleep.
- SLEEP 5-6 hours a night, you can try taking vitamin C and selenium and see if this will help you increase the number of hours you sleep.
- SLEEP over 9 hrs/day, you probably are not getting enough of the stimulant theobromine or the compound choline, so the suggestion is to try eating 1 ounce of dark chocolate per day or eat more eggs, turkey, or scallops to help you reduce the number of hours you are sleeping a day.
