The Science Behind Nightfood
Almost everybody snacks at night. We struggle to make the right choices but most of us don’t reach for the healthiest options. Eating the wrong snacks at night can impair your sleep, and when you don’t sleep well, everything suffers. Your appearance, your relationships, your performance… everything.
At Nightfood, we’ve spent eleven years pioneering and perfecting the first night snack products for consumers. Nightfood isn’t a magic cure for poor sleep. There are many factors that ultimately determine sleep quality on any given night. But Nightfood Ice Cream is a great way to improve sleep hygiene for most night snackers. It’s another good choice, like less screen time before bed, or keeping your bedroom cool and dark. Nightfood Ice Cream was formulated by leading sleep experts and nutritionists to satisfy nighttime biological cravings while protecting sleep quality.
Nightfood contains less of the sleep-disruptive ingredients common in the most popular night snack choices and more of the ingredients and nutrients that research suggests can support nighttime relaxation and better sleep quality.
