Five Foods That Can Help With Your Insomnia

Insomnia can be an incredibly frustrating experience. There's perhaps nothing more disheartening than laying in bed for hours without any hope of sleep in sight. We all know that foods high in caffeine like soda and coffee can make insomnia worse, but your overall diet also affects the quality of your sleep. Moreover, some foods can actually help prevent insomnia and ease you to sleep. Here are the five best foods to help with your insomnia:

Turkey There's a reason you find yourself falling asleep at Thanksgiving dinner, and it may just be the turkey you ate. Turkey is high in tryptophan, an amino acid that can help ease you to sleep. Other foods that are high in tryptophan and that can help you sleep include eggs, cheese, and milk. Eating a diet rich in calcium also helps to boost your body's production of tryptophan.

Caffeine-Free Tea The caffeine in sweet tea and some hot teas can leave you awake, jittery, and suffering from insomnia at night. But chamomile tea is something of a wonder drink. It can help with anxiety and has also been used for thousands of years as an insomnia home remedy.

Chlorophyll Cholorophyll-rich food items are believed by some to help with insomnia. These foods are not likely to put you to sleep immediately, but a diet rich in these foods will make insomnia less likely. Eat dark leafy greens and raw vegetables daily to improve insomnia. Some holistic practitioners note that radicchio and dandelion greens are especially effective at curing insomnia.

Herbs Some herbs are well-known for their effect on insomnia. These include dill and basil, which you can get at most grocery stores and even grow in your own garden.

Fruit The sugars in some fruits can actually interfere with sleep, but mulberries and lemons are reputed to have a calming effect on anxiety, which can help eliminate insomnia.

Foods to Avoid Spicy foods and caffeine are some of the worst culprits in insomnia, especially if eaten right before bed. Foods high in processed sugars are also particularly bad, as well as white bread. Limit these items in your diet, and never eat them right before bed.
