What Is Insomnia?

This is not a term that is unfamiliar to us. Most of us these days are haunted by the curse that is sleeplessness. There are a myriad of things that can cause sleeplessness or insomnia. It is advised to get yourself properly checked as this may be a symptom of something bigger like a mental health disease or even heart problems. But in most cases, it is caused by high levels of stress and anxiety, poor sleeping conditions like an uncomfortable bed, exposure to loud noises, lifestyle factors such as intake of high amounts of caffeine. In short, insomnia is when you lack enough sleep hormones such as serotonin and melatonin. This can affect not only your sleep, but also the proper functioning of your mind and body.

All this being said, moderation is the key. Ingesting more coconut oil does not, in any way, get you more sleep.
