Foods that help you sleep!

We all agree that there is nothing better than a good nights sleep! But how many of us are getting the quality sleep that makes us feel refreshed and alert ? There are many foods that contain naturally occurring substances that bring on sleep. Adjusting our diet to include sleep boosting ingredients could help us fall asleep quicker and for longer.

There are two main biochemicals that are involved in helping you sleep. There is the neurotransmitter Serotonin and the hormone Melatonin and both of these are made naturally from the amino acid Tryptophan. There are a number of natural ingredients that contain Tryptophan which can easily be added to your diet.  Vitamin B6 is found in most of the foods that contain Tryptophan and this helps convert the amino acid Tryptophan to melatonin and serotonin.

Magnesium is well known for its ability to relieve insomnia and is essential for cellular health and hundreds of Biochemical processes in the body.  Magnesium reduces the amount of cortisol, the stress hormone, relaxes muscles and gives you that sleepy feeling that you need at the end of a day. A study published by BMC  Bioinformatics said that 80% of Americans may suffer from a magnesium deficiency . Green leafy vegetables are not the only foods that contain magnesium but  yoghurt, figs, banana and black chocolate which might spark your appetite.

If we neglect our sleep we neglect a third of our life.  It is important to get enough sleep and be aware of the reasons why we might be suffering from interrupted sleep.

Silent night! I have bought a number of snore devices over the years and this is one I will stick with. I love that they have a woman’s size, I don’t feel like I have a mouth full of plastic. It’s very easy to fit and doesn’t require any screws to adjust. I got the double pack and glad I did now that I know I’ll keep using them. And for the price you can’t beat it.
