A recent study out of the University of Athens found that adhering to the Mediterranean Diet can indeed improve the quality of your sleep, especially in older adults.
Sleep is very important to promoting good health. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, an arm of the U.S. government, states that sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Which is why ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of several vascular diseases such as heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.
The Mediterranean Diet can help you get your zzz’s! You may wonder why eating a Mediterranean Diet would be one strategy for improving the quality of your sleep. The Greek study authors surmise that the connection could have to do with the presence of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, found in large quantity in foods eaten on the Mediterranean Diet like olive oil, fish and fruit.
