It is well established that people who get less sleep (or reduced sleep quality) are more likely to overeat. They are also more likely to favor energy-rich foods, high in fat or refined carbs.

However, there is considerably less research out there that investigates the other side of the equation: how the food choices that we make today affect the sleep we get tonight.

This article looks into the scientific literature to determine whether there are specific foods that can affect how you sleep. Should you eat two kiwifruits before going to bed? Does tryptophan in protein make you sleepy? Are cherries a natural hypnotic? To find out what the research says, check out the blog below!

Is food really medicine? A recent clinical trial found that drinking just two ounces of tart cherry juice reduced blood pressure by around around 7 mmHg.

That may not sound like a whole lot, but small changes like this can make a surprisingly big difference. Data from pharmaceutical trials has suggested that a reduction of just 5-6 mmHG over a period of five years may be enough to reduce risk of stroke by 38% and risk of coronary artery disease by 23%.

This level of reduction, in fact, is comparable to the blood-pressure lowering effect of an antihypertensive drug.
