I used to have trouble sleeping due to insomnia. My way to get rid of insomnia is to change the pattern of a cleaner sleep, change a healthy lifestyle, and I consume herbal drinks before sleep.
Some natural foods and drinks can help us sleep well through the night? These are the usual herbal drinks I consume to help me sleep well:
Milk contains tryptophan active compounds. The content of tryptophan in milk is able to stimulate the brain to produce serotonin and melatonin hormones. Both of these hormones make us feel more relaxed, calm, and fast sleepy. In addition, milk is also high in calcium, which can both make sleepy.
In order to sleep well, I consume warm milk before bed. Warm temperatures can help us feel more relaxed and relaxed.
Herbal Drinks Tea lavender and chamomile
Tea from dried chamomile flowers contains effects that can help relieve stress and calm the mind. While lavender essential oil can relax the nerves tense after a day of activity.
To make it, you can use 2 chamomile tea bags with warm water for 8 minutes. Then stir while adding 1 or 2 drops of pure lavender oil. Consumption 30-60 minutes before bedtime.
Cherry juice can be a beverage to overcome insomnia. In one study, people with insomnia who consumed two ounces of cherry juice for two weeks could sleep 90 minutes longer than those who did not drink the juice before bed.
Cherries have anti-inflammatory properties that are believed to help the biological clock to better regulate the sleep cycle. Be sure to consume pure cherry juice without added sugar.
Smoothies with almonds
Almonds contain magnesium that works to calm the nervous system. In effect, the brain will trigger the release of serotonin production and melatonin which makes us feel sleepy quickly.
How to make it like this: blender milk almond fresh (plain) with banana slices. Bananas are also a source of foods high in tryptophan and magnesium that help to sleep soundly.
In a study that examined the health benefits of lemon balm fruit, one of them found to overcome the problem of insomnia. The study reported that 81 percent of people who consume herbal tea with lemon balm and valerian combination can sleep more soundly than people who only consume placebo tea. In addition, lemon balm also provides a calming effect and improve the mood to sleep well again.…
