Hello friends, do you have an idea about eggplant? Is it true that eating eggplant especially at night could minimize insomniac? My friend is constantly complaining for having a very less time of night sleep.

Yes! Eggplants can be a treatment to insomnia. Intakes of Vitamin C can help too. I wonder what caused her to be insomniac? Sometimes it's because the lack of exposure to sunlight. Maybe she has to go out from their house sometimes.

Lack of exposure to sunlight, I guess you hit it right! She goes out from home to office before six in the morning and reach home every eight at night.I could suggest her to plan for a beach recreation any day time during off at work.

My sister is so much like her. She looks like a zombie. I mean, with no sun at all for years, and no sleep. Lol. That's a very good idea! You're a good friend. Stay that way!

I could imagine her as a good "zombie" friend. Usually we call her lady dracula because of her long time stay alive at night.

I have never known that the eggplant will have such a usage. But it is no harm to have a try. After all, the eggplant is a kind of vegetable and it is supposed to be good for the health.

I have not heard about it. It is really interesting to know that eating eggplant can help insomnia patient. No harm to give a try for those who have problem to sleep. Sleepless night can be very bad for health. If they can find natural remedy by eating eggplant it would be better than taking medicines.

I didn't know about that! That's great, I have little insomnia from time to time so I'll eat more eggplants for sure, I even think the best eggplants recipes are vegan anyways so it's going to be a lot of fun. Just recently I find out how baking the eggplant can give this taste for the food so I'm really looking foward to it then, thanks!

Does your friend really has a short night rest or is your friend thinking this is the fact? Also.. the more you complain and are busy with the fact you are NOT able to sleep the less you will sleep. Your friend should better focus more on the own life style. Plenty of relaxing time the whole day on, on doing active or brain stimulating activities 1-2 hours before bedtime (like watching tv, computer, etc), sitting in the dark will help too. No heavy meals (the digestion of them about 7-8 hours later will give you a bad night rest as well). About the plant I don't know.. but even if it doesn't help, the believe in might work as well also. Which counts or?

Well, due to busy schedule at day time for office work hence she loves to do household chores at night but always with a bunch of foods beside her.Even at midnight she always does a snack.

Hi zearah, Eggplant is one of the most harmless vegetables in the Solanaceae family. They can be eaten by babies at 4 or 5 months, so I don't think it can be very efficient against insomnia. But you can prepare an eggplant dish to your friend, tell him that it is good for insomnia... and see if the placebo effect works on him. Anyways an eggplant caviar is delicious.

Well, yes I would rather prepare her a grilled eggplants with soysauce mixed with fresh tomato and a drop of lemon juice plus the red chili minced. And a fried fish or grilled one will do.

I don't know about eggplants and their relationship to sleep but your friend can minimize insomnia by avoiding drinks with caffeine like coffee or sodas. Exercising regularly would also be of big help and drinking a glass of milk before bedtime is another sleep inducer.
