Subject: Dietary prebiotics improve sleep, buffer impacts of stress, says study
a couple of researches experimented with rats in order to see if probiotics helped as a sleeping aid, they tested this experiment with rats and found that the rats while being on the probiotics spent more time in non rapid movement which is restful. According to the researches these isn't enough evidence to state that probiotics improve sleep.
- We found that dietary prebiotics can improve non-REM sleep, as well as REM sleep after a stressful event
- lesser-known gut-health promoters called prebiotics -- which serve as food for good bacteria inside the gut -- can also have an impact, improving sleep and buffering the physiological impacts of stress.
- it is possible that a diet rich in prebiotics started in early life could help improve sleep, support the gut microbiota and promote optimal brain/psychological health," the authors wrote.
"Prebiotics are dietary fibers found naturally in foods like chicory, artichokes, raw garlic, leeks and onions."
