Prebiotics Could Stop Stress from Harming Sleep Quality


Recommendations state that adults should get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. 33 percent of the adult population does not get the recommended amount of sleep.

Key takeaways:

– 47 percent of adults report a lack of sleep due to stress and a further 21 percent report that poor sleep exacerbates their stress.

– The prebiotic diet was shown to improve the non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep that is the restorative sleep, promote optimal brain health, and support gut microbiota.

– The prebiotic diet helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle before and after stress and helps to protect against stress.
