HVN backs kiwifruit sleep link study

1st July 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

A study examining the effects of green kiwifruit on sleep quality and the sleep-wake cycle in healthy males has been awarded funding of $31,800 over 12 months by the High-Value Nutrition Ko Ngā Kai Whai Painga National Science Challenge.

This study builds on previous research, which showed that sleep quality is improved with the daily consumption of two green kiwifruit for four weeks.

It is being conducted by PhD candidate Alex Kanon, under supervision of Dr Sharon Henare at Massey University in collaboration with Zespri International, who are providing contributions of fresh green kiwifruit.
