Did you know: Eating avocados can help you sleep better at night

This will surprise most Haitians because I just found out myself: Eating avocado, zaboka in Creole, can help you sleep better at night. Your Haitian mother probably told you "li two ta pou w manje zaboka" LOL...

Putting Avocados in a bucket of water will stop the ripening process?

Turns out Avocados are high in B vitamins, a vitamin that helps regulate your sleep.

According to the Alaska Sleep Clinic there are four main vitamins and minerals that can be found in food that aid in promoting sleep: tryptophan, magnesium, calcium, and B6. Three of these four vitamins are found in avocados.

So if you feel like having some "zaboka ak pain" (avocado and a slice of bread) for super, you'll be fine!

Good night!
