Sleeping problems are on the rise in the United States. I know I for one don’t get enough. But did you know that there are 6 superfoods that can help improve your nights sleep? I’m going to have to try some of these!
This is one of those foods I eat anyway! Awesome. Almonds help relax your muscles and contain magnesium and tryptophan.
Warm milk contains the amino acid tryptophan, which has a calming effect.
Chamomile has a relaxing effect and helps with any kind of digestive cramp too. It helps calm agitated nerves and can get rid of insomnia.
Honey helps with anxiety, which can help you sleep if that’s what’s been keeping you up. Sugar helps keep you awake, but honey glucose has the opposite effect.
Oats are rich in melatonin, so a small serving of oatmeal before bed can be the ideal dinner for sleep.
This one surprised me! A baked potato stimulates the production of insulin and releases tryptophan, which produces seratotin that helps calm your nerves and helps you sleep.
Doing things like getting enough exercise, not looking at a screen within an hour of bed, and reading a good book can also help you sleep. Good luck!
