Diet and Sleep

There are many aspects in our lives that can affect our sleep but one of the most important and overlooked ones is diet! In this article, we’ll go over how some parts of diet and nutrition impacts your sleep, and what you can do to maximize both.

Carbohydrates- carbs are an essential part of any diet, providing immediate and lasting energy to support your day, but too much, especially sugar, can hurt your sleep. It’s common to feel drowsy after consuming a vast amount of carbs, but studies have shown that the sleep following has reduced amounts of REM sleep, the phase where most of your recovery happens.

Vitamins- having proper intake of vitamins is important to have your body running smoothly. Recent studies have shown a lack of vitamin A, C, D, E, and K to be associated with sleep issues. If you feel that you are lacking in vitamins, one option to consider is taking a daily multivitamin that can provide you with these if you can’t fit them all into your diet.
