Sweet dreams

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

Sci­en­tists have found that an ac­tive com­po­nent found in sug­ar­cane may aid sleep. The group, led by re­searchers from the In­ter­na­tional In­sti­tute for In­te­gra­tive Sleep Medicine at the Univer­sity of Tsukuba in Ja­pan, found that oc­ta­cosanol re­duced stress and re­stored stress-af­fected sleep pat­terns back to nor­mal in stressed­out mice. More re­search is be­ing done to see how oc­ta­cosanol can ben­e­fit hu­mans.
