Abstract :

Sleep deprivation, stress, poor quality sleep etc., are the rising problems of today???s generation. Most of the time, these problems are treated with the help of anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medicines like alprazolam, etc. Instead of going for drug related therapies, we here by focus on hormones by means of food nutrition science and increase levels of hormones such as tryptophan that can help for good sleep and boost the quality of sleep. For the above, we made a case study and tracked sleep cycles supplementing it with cashewnut food to see the improvement of sleep quality. We used carbohydrate with tryptophan to greater uptake of tryptophan across the blood-brain barrier into the cerebrospinal fluid. We found good improvements.
