Study links people who don’t get enough sleep to poor nutrition

Poor sleep has been connected to poor nutrition. However, it is unclear why the two may appear together. The association between the issues was revealed in a study that looked at National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data, based on the American Society for Nutrition, which unearthed that individuals who sleep lower than seven hours per night might also lack adequate levels of vital nutrients.

Following the CDC, adults should get more than seven hours of sleep per night to maintain their health. The brand new study unearthed that US adults who got not as much as that number also, an average of, consumed fewer nutrients like vitamins D and A, zinc, niacin, and more.

Some vitamins and minerals are vital for health but are not created by the body. Someone with a poor diet could be with a lack of at least one of these micronutrients, eventually leading to disruption in normal bodily functions, or perhaps the introduction of diseases or any other problems.

As well as a connection between poor sleep and poor nutrition, the study found that more nutrients were connected to poor sleep in females; taking vitamin supplements reduced the amount, based on the study, hinting at a potential benefit from supplementing to fill the nutritional gaps in one’s diet.

The findings may be revealed because of the study’s lead author Chioma Ikonte in the annual American Society for Nutrition meeting. The type for the study means the researchers were not able to find out whether someone suffers poor sleep quality because of poor nutrition, or if perhaps poor sleep quality eventually results in nutritional deficits.
