Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Impaired Attention Dietary Supplement: Placebo Dietary Supplement: Banana peel extract Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Insomnia is one of the most frequently complained sleep problems in sleep disorders, and in recent years has been regarded by the medical community as a disease that seriously affects people's lives and quality of life. The problem of perishable and perishable causes a great burden on the environment. However, banana peels actually contain many functional ingredients, such as dietary fiber, minerals, alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, saponins, tannins and dopamine, etc. Banana peel contains more total phenols and total flavonoids than banana pulp. Studies have pointed out that banana peel extraction can inhibit the growth of fungi and bacteria. In addition, it also has antioxidant, anti-depressant, and diuretic functions. Banana peel can also improve the performance of tryptophan metabolism-related genes
