Plant-Based Diets Improve Sleep Quality

A new study shows that plant-based diets may help optimize sleep quality. Researchers assessed the diets of 2,424 people 45 years or older in China. People whose diets were highest in foods like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes experienced significantly better sleep quality than those with lower consumption of these foods.
