Healthy Diet May Improve Sleep Quality

A diet low in fiber and high in saturated fat and sugar is associated with lighter, less restorative sleep with more arousals, a new study has found.

The researchers suggest that adjusting diet to include more fiber and less saturated fat and sugar may be useful in the management of sleep disorders.

The study, published in the January issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, was led by Marie-Pierre St-Onge, PhD, Institute of Human Nutrition at Columbia University Medical Center, New York.

"We found that sleep quality appears to be affected by what we eat, with fiber and saturated fat particularly important factors," she told Medscape Medical News.
