The Supplements Night Owls Need

The Supplements Night Owls Need

There are nights where one has to stay up late for that very-important business proposals; or bar hopping on a Friday night.

It is commonly known that lack of sleep increases the chances of getting sick. Staying up late creates a direct impact to the liver. Detoxification occurs from 11pm to 1am and the body has to be in deep sleep to take place. Facing the computer for long hours causes eye fatigue, blurred vision and sometimes migraine.

Improving your nutrition

Vitamin B: As lack of sleep has always been linked with poor immune system, a diet focusing on foods rich in vitamin Bs is good because vitamin Bs are good for immune function, iron absorption and energy production. The B-complex vitamins are also essential for mental and emotional well-being. You may include food rich in vitamin Bs into your daily diet such as meat, poultry, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, dairy and nuts.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D is related to melatonin, one of the most important nutrients to help you optimise your sleep. This helps improve the performance of pineal gland, where melatonin comes from.
