Let’s talk a little about a sleep hack I have been experimenting with lately.

🌰PISTACHIOS 2 HOURS BEFORE BED….
⁣⁣
📚INCREASES MELATONIN LEVELS:⁣⁣
Exceptionally high melatonin concentrations (227–233 μg/g) have been found in four different varieties of Pistachio nuts (Pistacia vera L.) (Oladi et al., 2014); they are the highest values reported for any plant organ to date.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
✅CONTAINS POTASSIUM:⁣⁣
Potassium plays a key role in regulating REM sleep and pistachios are a rich source of potassium (Dreher et al., 2012).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
✅CONTAINS B6:⁣⁣
Vitamin B6 is an essential co-factor for the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, and subsequently melatonin. This will also improve sleep. Pistachios are a rich source of B6 (Jones et al., 2011). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⚡️EXTRA BONUS BENEFIT:⁣⁣
Pistachio Nut Consumption Increases Heart Rate Variability (higher = better for health) and Reduces Blood Pressure in Well‐Controlled Type 2 Diabetes: a Randomized Trial (Sander et al., 2014). ⁣⁣

But wait a moment… what’s so important about Heart Rate Variability (HRV)?
Well, if there is a single biomarker you should strive to optimize for ULTIMATE health, it’s your HRV.

Measuring your HRV is one of the best ways to know if your body is stressed. Generally speaking, the higher your HRV, the better, although there are some exceptions to this rule.

On the contrary, if you’re overtrained, not well-rested, or sleep-deprived, the normally healthy beat-to-beat variation in your heart rhythm begins to diminish, thereby indicating a low HRV.

Remember how I spoke about gut health last week?
Well, did you know that ENDOTOXIN, can actually decrease HRV values!?

More on endotoxin in the next few weeks.

But for now, happy pistachioing!
