  • Foods to Naturally Improve Your Sleep


    Sleep does the body good. It really does. If you’ve ever gone through a period where you weren’t sleeping well or didn’t have time to sleep, you will be well aware of just how hard it can be on your body. Not only can a lack of asleep affect things like concentration, stress, weight, but it can also affect your body’s ability to recover from workouts. The more sleep you get the better your body can recover. There are all sorts of medications on the market to help you sleep better, but what kinds of FOODS can we be eating to help? Here are a few to try adding to your diet to help improve your sleep.

    Fish

    Not only is fish great for its Omega-3 properties for recovery, but fish is also rich in tryptophan which is a natural sedative. Some of the best fish for tryptophan are: shrimp, cod, tuna, and halibut which all contain more than turkey which is normally the first food discussed that contain tryptophan.

    Nuts

    Walnuts and Almonds are both great examples of nuts to include in your diet to help improve sleep. Walnuts, much like fish, contain tryptophan which helps to produce serotonin and melatonin in the body. This can help to regulate your sleep cycles. Almonds are rich in magnesium, which has been shown to increase the overall quality of sleep. If your magnesium levels get too low, it makes it hard for your body to stay asleep leaving you with a less than restful night’s sleep.

    Cherries

    Cherries or cherry juice is an excellent pre-bed snack. Tart cherries in particular naturally boost the levels of melatonin in your body. This can help not only to help you fall asleep but also keep you asleep for a more satisfying night of sleep. Tart cherries have also been shown to help aid in recovery so it’s a winner all around!

    Chamomile

    Are you a big fan of tea at night? We have good news for you then! Chamomile Tea has been shown to help you sleep even better. This helps to increase glycine in the body, which is a chemical that relaxes nerves and muscles in the body. It acts as a very mild sedative and can help calm your mind and body before going to sleep.
