Pearls of Health

Science has once again verified the importance of the Eight Laws of Health in life expectancy. The Journal of the American College of Nutrition reports in the February 4, 2014 issue that good sleep patterns and a diverse diet are key in living longer. "Poor sleep has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease," said Professor Walhqvist of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

"We found that for both genders, poor sleep was strongly correlated with poor appetite and poor perceived health. Women who were poor sleepers had a lower intake of vitamin B-6 from food than those whose sleep was rated fair or good. Fair sleepers had lower iron intakes than good sleepers.” Eating a well-rounded diet improves longevity in both men and women the study reported. So for better health eat and sleep well and make sure you get your vitamin B-6 rich foods. Good sources of vitamin-B6 include: seeds, nut, dried fruit, banana, spinach and avocados.
