Scientists may have found a natural alternative for the improvement of sleep quality with no side effects, according to studies.

Sleep disorders are conditions can be acute or chronic. Most of us experience sleep disturbance sometimes due to some specific and unspecific events. However, chronic sleep disorders are the changes in the way that you sleep.


Most people with chronic sleep disorder experience symptoms of excessive daytime sleepiness, irregular breathing or increased movement during sleep, and difficulty falling asleep.


Sleep quality can be measured by examing the.way that you sleep, including the time period that you need to fall to sleep and how many times you have awakened and drifted back to sleep during night sleep.


According to the statistic provided by the National Sleep Foundation’s inaugural Sleep Health Index, 45 % of Americans have poor or insufficient sleep. that affects their daily activities at least once in the past seven days.


The National Sleep Foundation continued, “…despite sleeping within the recommended number of hours a night, 35 percent of Americans report their sleep quality as “poor” or “only fair.” Twenty percent of Americans reported that they did not wake up feeling refreshed on any of the past seven days”.


What causes poor quality of sleep in American? Some researchers suggested these may be results from occupation and occupation stress.  


Dr, Eui-Joong Kim, the lead scientists, in examing the stressors’ effect on sleep quality said, “It is possible that different types of stressors may bring with them different impacts on sleep” and “ (a) some aspect of daily stress (such as job stress) and life events (such as divorce, bereavement), (b) experimentally imposed stressors (laboratory-based studies), and (c) traumatic stressors (such as disasters or PTSD)”.


Additionally, “ The first and last categories typically involve a longer duration of the stress exposure with varying levels of intensity; the experimental stressors, on the other hand, typically involve a short-term exposure to mild stress”.


These results partly explained why over 20% of American suffer from poor quality of sleep.


Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The rich golden liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

With an aim to find a natural compound for the improvement of sleep quality, researchers compared the effects of a single nocturnal dose of 3 honey products (eucalyptus honey, citrus honey, or Labiatae honey) to placebo (silan date extract) in children with upper respiratory tract infections (URIs).


The study included 300 children aged 1 to 5 years with URIs, nocturnal cough, and illness duration of ≤ 7 days from 6 general pediatric community clinics.

Eligible children received a single dose of 10 g of eucalyptus honey, citrus honey, Labiatae honey, or placebo administered 30 minutes before bedtime. There was a significant improvement in sleep quality from the night before treatment to the night of treatment in all 3 honey products and the placebo group.

However, the improvement was greater in the honey groups.

Honey products were rated higher than the silan date extract for symptomatic relief of their children’s nocturnal cough and sleep difficulty due to URI, According to the survey returned from parents.


Dr. Cohen HA the lead scientist after taking into account co and confounders, said, “Honey may be a preferable treatment for a cough and sleep difficulty associated with childhood URI”.


Furthermore, in order to reveal more information of honey effects in cough and sleep difficulty, researchers compared the effects of a single nocturnal dose of buckwheat honey or honey-flavored dextromethorphan (DM) with no treatment on nocturnal cough and sleep difficulty associated with childhood upper respiratory tract infections.


The study included 105 children aged 2 to 18 years with upper respiratory tract infections, nocturnal symptoms, and illness duration of 7 days or less were given a single dose of buckwheat honey, honey-flavored DM, or no treatment administered 30 minutes prior to bedtime.


Honey treatment group demonstrated significant differences in symptom improvement between treatment groups.


In paired comparisons, honey was significantly superior to no treatment for cough frequency and the combined score. 


And, according to the survey returned by the parents, honey is most favorable for symptomatic relief of their child’s nocturnal cough and sleep difficulty in children with upper respiratory tract infection.


Taken altogether, honey may be considered a functional remedy for the improvement of sleep quality, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.
