Did you know that there are natural foods that you may already have in your kitchen that can help you fall asleep quickly? If you don’t already have them in your kitchen, you can easily pick them up in your local grocery store.
Why rely on sleeping pills from the medical industry? They may put you to sleep tonight but will bring you serious long time side effects. In fact, a recent study found that people who took drug-based sleeping pills such as Ambien and Lunesta had a higher risk of dying sooner or developing cancer. In other words, those drug-based sleeping pills can literally put you to sleep ….. for good. YIKES!
Here are some of the foods that have been proven to help you fall asleep quickly and naturally. (1) Raw and unfiltered Honey eaten just before bed can help you get a good night’s sleep. Honey provides easy-to-access fuel for your brain throughout the night. Specifically, it restocks your liver’s glycogen. Low levels of glycogen tell your brain that it’s time to eat. If you haven’t eaten in several hours when you go to sleep, this hunger can cause you to wake up in the middle of the night and sleep less soundly. Raw Honey also helps your brain release melatonin, the hormone that your body uses to restore itself during sleep. No wonder Rasullullah (saw) has mentioned honey as shifa. Make sure the honey you use is raw and unfiltered. Most honey sold in supermarkets are laced with sugar so that’s not good for you. (2) Bananas are an excellent source of magnesium and potassium which help relax overstressed muscles and make them an ideal go-to snack before bed. They also contain all-important tryptophan to stimulate production of those key brain calming hormones. Eat whole or make a smoothie. (3) Cherry juice is high in melatonin, and a recent study found that regularly drinking cherry juice or eating cherries may help people with insomnia regulate their sleep cycles for better sleep. (4) Whole Grains are filling and sleep-enhancing. Eating a couple of whole-grain or toast before bed can help you fall asleep. Brown rice contains GABA, calming the nervous system. Protein-rich quinoa is high in sleep-supporting magnesium and tryptophan. Rice, barley, and oats are all natural sources of melatonin. (5) Yogurt contains tryptophan, an amino acid the body uses to produce melatonin and serotonin. Both of these are brain chemicals that induce relaxation and sleepiness. Get plain yogurt or Greek yogurt, and avoid yogurts that are high in sugar. (6) Oats are a natural source of melatonin which is a hormone that helps to control the body’s sleep/wake cycle. Have a bowl of oatmeal before bedtime. If you are still having problems sleeping after trying these natural foods, contact HijamaEnergetics as you may have deeper issues that needs to be looked into.
