According to the CDC, 35.2% of all adults in the world sleep less than seven hours per night. These short sleepers are more susceptible to adverse health risk factors, such as obesity, physical inactivity, smoking, and excessive alcohol use, the CDC reported in the clinical survey.
Sleep-related problems, often associated with one of the ten major sleep disorder categories, afflict about 50-70% of population in the world, according to the American Sleep Apnea Association. The latest development in a line of much-needed research suggests that changes to the gut might have some viability to help certain sleep-deprived individuals.
According to a study conducted by the University of Colorado Boulder, evidence suggests that prebiotic fibers can improve sleep and boost stress resilience by influencing the bioactive molecules produced by gut bacteria. Researchers found that Prebiotic fibers has benefits that are understood to stretch well beyond digestive health.
Researchers found that prebiotic fibers not just bulk up the stool and pass through the digestive system but also feeding the bugs that live in our gut and creating a symbiotic relationship with us that has powerful effects on our brain and behavior.
Researchers saw improved sleep before and after stress being fed a prebiotic-rich diet.
