Indian nutritionist Pooja Mahija talked about why people sleep and wake up restlessly at night, and also named a way to cope with this.
Most often, sleep problems are associated with a drop in blood sugar levels, which leads to the release of adrenaline and cortisol. This, in turn, lowers the level of the sleep hormone melatonin, which can lead to premature waking, the nutritionist told Instagram.
According to Mahiji, this can be avoided by eating a handful of nuts an hour before bed. For example, almonds contain the amino acid tryptophan, which promotes the production of melatonin. It is also rich in magnesium, which improves sleep quality.
Earlier, American neurologist Chris Winter said that to solve many sleep problems, in most cases, it is enough to lower the temperature in the bedroom by a few degrees.
According to the expert, the coolness will help get rid of insomnia, and will also contribute to a longer rest.
