Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 15, 2013
On March 15, mattress sale company Online Bed Quilt responds to an article published by The Hindu, which describes certain foods and vitamins that promote sleep.
According to The Hindu, sleeping disorders are on the rise, especially in India. It’s almost considered an epidemic. However, the article says diet has a lot to do with how people sleep. Eating healthy could help people remedy their poor sleeping habits. Deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals could contribute to unhealthy sleep disorders.
Justin Maas, a representative from mattress sale company, Online Bed Quilt, says a poor diet could have a negative effect on sleep quality. “It’s true that you are what you eat,” he says. “If you only eat processed foods, which lack necessary vitamins or minerals, you’re not going to sleep very well. Potassium deficiencies have been linked to restless leg syndrome, a common sleep disorder. Just eating a banana a day might even help ease the symptoms because potassium relaxes muscles.”
The Hindu reports that tryptophan, naturally found in turkey, and serotonin, are natural sleep-promoting amino acids. Vitamin D and Vitamin B6 are also essential for a healthy sleep sequence, the article says. Vitamin B6, found abundantly in fish, helps to make melatonin, the natural chemical that helps you fall asleep.
However, Maas says food is not the only way to get a good night’s sleep. “If you’re suffering from a sleep disorder, you should also make changes to your sleep environment,” he says. “Mattress conditions will determine how well you sleep. To maintain a healthy sleep habit, make sure you eat good food and invest in a good mattress.”
