Foods that can help you sleep
Towards the end of January, I posted about how sleep can help with bone health, in fact here is the link to my blog just in case you missed it, https://bit.ly/2GzEnnN, and my clients and I have also been talking about tart cherry juice as an aid for sleeping. So, of course, it only made sense that I should mention foods that could help.
I mean who doesn’t like to eat, I know I do especially when I know that the nutrients from those foods will help repair my body from all that I put it through, help it function properly and assist in sleeping too. I am not a big tea drinker and many of you already know about warm milk, there is plenty of information out there on those that I am going to skip that one.
Check out this list of fruit that contains melatonin to help you fall asleep faster.
Tart Cherry Juice or Whole Tart Cherries
Other foods that can help are:
Complex Carbs - Can help with your serotonin levels.
A Handful of Nuts - Can help to regulate your sleep and wake cycle.
Cottage Cheese - Contain the amino acid tryptophan that can help increase your serotonin levels.
If you are having problems sleeping and would like to go the more natural route, which I always suggest, give some of these a try. You may have to play around with a combination of things or you may find that just one certain one helps. Also, consider adding fruit and vegetables that are high in antioxidants since they can help counteract the stress from a sleep disorder. If you would like some more information, here is the link I used for my post.
