Performance in elite athletes can be boosted through nutritional interventions that enhance sleep!
Sleep deprivation can alter an athlete's nutrition, metabolism, and endocrine levels. It can even hinder their learning, memory, cognition, pain perception, immunity, and - ultimately - their performance.
Consuming valerian is one way to enhance sleep and, in turn, athletic performance. This herb has compounds that function like the neurotransmitters that induce sleep, thus promoting deep, restful slumber.
