Foods that can help with insomnia
In this article, I am going to talk about foods that can help with insomnia. I feel that this, insomnia is an important topic to cover as it is a cause of erectile dysfunction and a cause other symptoms such as low testosterone levels, high blood pressure and stress, all of which can lead to erectile dysfunction.
The importance of sleep and our overall health is mentioned in this article insomnia and erectile dysfunction where I talk about the health dangers of poor quality sleep and it relationship to erectile dysfunction as well as our overall health.
I also talk about insomnia in this post, testosterone and sleep relationship about how low quality and low-level sleep can make our testosterone level hit rock bottom and how good solid sleep can switch on the night-time testosterone factory and help our testosterone level get sky high.
So, with no further a due, let’s get on with today’s topic.
Foods that can help with insomnia
In previous articles we mentioned and talked about vitamins and minerals that can help with insomnia, now it is time to talk about food that can help us to get some shut eye.
Walnuts are deliciously healthy and a tryptophan source, which in an amino acid that helps to make serotonin and melatonin.
Researchers at the university of texas discovered that walnuts contain their own source of melatonin, which could help you get some shut-eye quicker.
Almonds are a rich source of magnesium, the miracle mineral we talked about in the article minerals and insomnia. When were are lacking in magnesium we find it difficult to sleep.
Eating cheese at night will give you nightmares is somewhat of an old wives tale. The calcium contained within help our brain to use the tryptophan contained in dairy products and thus will help us to get some shut eye.
Salmon, tuna and halibut
Fresh fish like salmon, especially wild salmon, tuna, in particular, red tuna and halibut are great sources of vitamin B6 which is essential for our body to manufacture serotonin and melatonin which help us to get some sleep.
Raw garlic, pistachio nuts, beef live, chicken breast, chicken wings, and turkey are also great sources of vitamin B6 as is swordfish and herring. In short poultry and fish.
researchers at the university of Rochester and Pennsylvania discovered that cherries naturally boost our levels of melatonin. test subjects were given a glass of 100% natural cherry juice while the other group were given a placebo. The group who were given cherry juice noticed an improved quality of sleep.
The dark leafy green vegetables are great for helping us to get good quality sleep due to being a great source of calcium, as mentioned before calcium helps the brain to utilise tryptophan, which in turn, helps in the production of melatonin, which will help to knock us out!
Sources of Calcium include, milk, eggs, cheese and other dairy products like yoghurt, fish and leafy greens.
Game meat at it’s finest, in my opinion. Elk contains double the amount of tryptophan that of turkey breast. With just enough carbs as a side order will help the tryptophan reach the brain.
Now that explains why I feel tired and a like copping a few Zzzzz after a lovely meal of Elk.
Shrimps and lobster
I am delighted and I bet that you are too, to see delicious food on this list. Shrimps and lobster are high in tryptophan and therefore very good at helping us to get that much needed sleep.
