Your favorite fuzzy fruit is not only nutritious and delicious, but it will also help you get a better night sleep. Studies have shown that eating two kiwis one hour before you head to bed will help you fall asleep faster and sleep longer.
Those who conducted the study believe it has something to do with the serotonin kiwis help release. Extra serotonin will help you relax more and even curb you unhealthy bedtime cravings.
