Furthermore, Jaffer lauded Axar Patel’s five-wicket haul in his own unique style on his Koo handle and shared a post saying that ‘eating 2 Kiwis one hour before bedtime on a daily basis is linked to considerable improvements to both sleep quality and quantity. It also helps you fall asleep faster. Because Kiwi fruit is rich in serotonin, the happy hormone.’
