According to a study led by Melbourne-based Monash University, women can live long lives despite poor sleep habits as long as they eat a diverse diet that includes vitamin B6 and plenty of vegetables. Vitamin B6 can be found in food such as meat, bananas, nuts, garlic and pistachios.

Elderly participants in the study who did not sleep well were also less able to chew, had poor appetites, and did less physical activity.
