Whole Grains Linked with Lower Risk of Insomnia in Post-Menopausal Women
Don’t let a poor diet keep you up at night. In this study, researchers analyzed the diets and insomnia rates of more than 50,000 post-menopausal women. Eating more whole grains, ﬁber, fruit, and vegetables was linked with lower odds of insomnia. On the other hand, eating more added sugar, starch, reﬁned grains, and a high glycemic index diet (diet of foods that raise your blood sugar quickly) was linked with higher odds of insomnia.
