  • Sweat Late, Sleep Well

    With the increased awareness of the importance of sleep quantity and sleep quality there’s been a rise in interest in natural methods of improving both.

    The ‘munchies’ describes a sudden strong desire for food. The phrase, and the phenomenon, has long been associated with the use of marijuana, as after smoking pot people have a tendency to want to eat a lot, particularly junk food and sweets. But a new report has revealed that the munchies also appear after insufficient sleep, and researchers believe that they now know why.

    The study was conducted as a collaboration between the University of Chicago’s Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, the University of Chicago Medicine and the Medical College of Wisconsin, and was led by Erin Hanlon, PhD, research associate and assistant professor. They found that insufficient sleep raises the level of a specific substance that is a natural appetite stimulant.
