“Researchers have concluded that vitamin E offers potential as an alternative treatment for chronic insomnia disorder in postmenopausal women, as new data suggests it can improve sleep quality, thereby reducing sedative drug use.”
Research has linked poor sleep to poor nutrition. A study conducted in the United States found that people who get fewer than seven hours of sleep per night on average consume lower amounts of vitamins A, D, B1 and B3, as well as the minerals magnesium, calcium, zinc, and phosphorus.
Omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to be important, with research showing that people with low levels of these nutrients are more likely to have sleep difficulties. Supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids has been found to improve sleep quality in adults aged over 45.
