Orlando, FL— August 4, 2015 — Sleep is one of the most important things that people should get on a daily basis. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to get the right amount of sleep due to factors such as the existence of medical conditions or lack of time. The good news is that there is a natural ingredient called fish oil that can potentially offer some advantages to those who want to get a good quality slumber.
Researchers investigate the benefits of fish oil on sleep. Fish oil has been praised for many years now due to its positive effects on a variety of cardiovascular disease components such as lipid lowering and blood pressure. There are other health benefits associated with the use of fish oil such as an improvement in the symptoms of mood disorders. It is also believed to help people achieve quality sleep.
Lawrence Epstein, M.D., from Harvard Medical School and the Divison of Sleep Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, states that out of five people in the United States, one sleeps less than six hours every night. There is a variety of reasons for sleeplessness, such as pain and stress associated with disorders like sleep apnea, insomnia and narcolepsy. Unfortunately, it also has adverse consequences and one is being unable to function well during the day.
“Individuals who are deprived of sleep usually lack the energy and enthusiasm to function and do their daily routines. There are even those who cannot concentrate on working, studying or driving,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.
There are various negative health implications of sleep deprivation, and they include depression, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. These happen over time, mainly because those who usually have insufficient sleep are more prone to unhealthy eating and lack of exercise.
In the studies from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was found that fish oil contributes to the improvement in the secretion of melatonin, which is a hormone that aids in sleep regulation and wake cycles. Melatonin is often used as a remedy for jet lag and insomnia.
The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, namely the EPA and DHA, are also believed to lower norepinephrine levels, which is a stress hormone. This hormone is associated with the fight-or-flight response and one of the major neurotransmitters related to sleep. Norepinephrine imbalance can affect sleep patterns negatively, and even result in daytime drowsiness.
The World Health organization recommends consumption of 0.3 to 0.5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA. Consumers can eat fish or take fish oil supplements (http://www.amazon.com/Omega-Fish-Oil-Supplement-Softgels/dp/B00O8NS20K/).
