( — August 9, 2022) Orlando, FL — Over the years, researchers have been carrying out studies to look into the various effects of sleep. It has long been established that adequate sleep leads to a myriad of positive health outcomes.

A recently carried-out study has shown that good sleep-time recovery is linked with a health-promoting diet and health-promoting eating habits. It has further been found to be associated with lower consumption of alcohol.

The researchers of this study looked into the psychological and physiological well-being among working-age Finnish adults. They aimed at determining whether physiological recovery during sleep relates to eating behavior and diet quality.

Its findings were published in the Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology.  

It involved 252 psychologically distressed overweight adults who participated in a lifestyle intervention study in three Finnish cities. Researchers looked into their heart rate variability recorded on three consecutive nights as a basis for recovery.

Further, heart rate variability was also used in measuring both parasympathetic and sympathetic activation of the autonomic nervous system, and their relation, such as the balance between stress and recovery. 

The parasympathetic nervous system plays a key role in recovery, during which heart rate is decreased and heart rate variability is high.

It’s been found that higher sleep-time parasympathetic activity, which is indicative of better physiological recovery, correlates with more health-promoting diet quality. It is also associated with reduced alcohol intake, and possibly also with eating habits, especially factors impacting one’s decision to eat. 

It is particularly true for subjects with a good stress balance as they reported better overall diet quality, stronger dietary self-control, increased fiber intake, and lessened alcohol consumption compared to those with a poorer stress balance. 

Today, more and more researchers are investigating on the techniques potentially helpful in enhancing sleep. It is important to note that there are remedies like the medicinal mushroom called lion’s mane potentially helpful.

This amazing remedy has neuroprotective, cardiovascular-health enhancing, anti-inflammatory, cognitive-decline-fighting, nerve repairing, blood-pressure-lowering, immunity-boosting, cholesterol-regulating, and weight management properties. 

Researchers found that lion’s mane has sleep health benefits, in addition to the myriad of disease-fighting impacts its intake is linked with.  

Today, it is obtained widely through the use of formulas like Divine Bounty Lion’s Mane. Some studies have shown intake of lion’s mane may help enhance sleep quality and quantity. 

This formula is made carefully in an FDA-inspected facility in the U.S. It continues to be a popular choice among health-conscious and budget-wise consumers. (
