High-GI Carbohydrate Help You Fall In Sleep

High-glycemic-index carbohydrate meals shorten sleep onset:

"Conclusions: We showed that a carbohydrate-based high-GI meal resulted in a significant shortening of SOL in healthy sleepers compared with a low-GI meal and was most effective when consumed 4 h before bedtime. The relevance of these findings to persons with sleep disturbance should be determined in future trials."
