The common belief that drinking coffee at night disrupts sleep might actually be the opposite for older women, according to a study. Older women who regularly drink coffee are less likely to experience sleep disorders and sleep deprivation.A research team led by Margreet Olthof of the health siences department at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam analyzed the correlation between coffee consumption and sleep among 1,256 people aged 61 to 101 (587 men and 669 women).

The team found that the proportion of sleep-deprived older men (less than 7 hours of sleep per day) was 17 percent, compared to 26.3 percent for women.Women also reported higher rates of sleep disorders, such as difficulty falling asleep, maintaining sleep, or waking up too early, at 43.4 percent, compared to 25.7 percent for men.On average, men consumed more caffeine (286 milligrams per day) than women (244 milligrams per day).The research, titled “Association of Coffee and Tea Caffeine Consumption with Sleep Health in Older Adults: A Cross-Sectional Study,” was published in the recent issue of the international journal 카지노사이트킹 Nutrients.
