by | February 10th, 2011

In a recent study in the February issue of Menopause, Isoflavones, a group of compounds found in plants, has been shown to reduce insomnia in postmenopausal women. The study also noted a decrease in hot flashes as well.

Foods high in Isoflavones include soy, peanuts, chickpeas, alfalfa, and fava beans. “In postmenopausal women with insomnia, isoflavone treatment was effective in reducing insomnia symptoms, which was confirmed by increased sleep efficiency as observed by polysomnographic analysis,” the study authors write.
