Certain beverages have been suggested to aid in promoting sleep. These sleep-inducing drinks include cherry juice, chamomile tea, and various types of milk. Based on an article from Healthline, I will provide you with information about some drinks that can help improve your sleep quality.
1. Milk: Milk contains the amino acid tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin and melatonin, hormones that help induce sleep. While limited research is available on the direct effects of drinking milk before bed, studies suggest that a glass of warm milk may assist individuals who are not lactose intolerant or allergic in promoting better sleep.
2. Chamomile tea: According to healthline Chamomile tea is known for its potential benefits in reducing inflammation and enhancing skin health. Many people also credit it with aiding in achieving a more restful night's sleep. Research indicates that regular consumption of chamomile tea can significantly reduce the physiological effects of sleep deprivation. Opting for caffeine-free chamomile tea can provide a soothing beverage choice.
3. Cherry juice: Cherries, a type of stone fruit, possess various flavors ranging from sweet to tart or sour, and they come in different colors. Apart from being a delicious pie filling, cherries offer health benefits, including sleep improvement. The presence of tryptophan in cherries is believed to contribute to its sleep-promoting effects, according to studies.
4. Almond milk: Almonds are highly nutritious tree nuts, rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Almond milk, a satisfying milk alternative, is derived from almonds. Whole almonds have been shown to enhance sleep quality. Violet oil, derived from almonds or sesame seeds, has been utilized in Iranian traditional medicine for years to address sleeplessness.
5. Banana smoothie: Smoothies made with bananas are not only a tasty treat but also a great way to unwind before bed. Bananas contain muscle relaxants like magnesium and potassium, which can aid in sleep. Additionally, bananas are a source of sleep-inducing amino acids, tryptophan, and melatonin.
6. Milk and turmeric: Turmeric, containing curcumin, can help relax individuals and facilitate falling asleep by reducing mood and anxiety levels. When combined with milk, which contains tryptophan regulating the sleep-wake cycle, this beverage can be a beneficial approach to ensure a restful night's sleep, as suggested by studies.
7. Peppermint tea: Peppermint, a member of the Lamiaceae family of plants, has been widely used for culinary purposes and in traditional medicine. Peppermint tea is believed to possess potential antiviral, antimicrobial, and possibly anti-allergenic properties, offering a refreshing beverage option.
It's important to note that while these beverages may have sleep-enhancing properties, individual experiences may vary. It is recommended to try different options and observe how your body responds to determine the most suitable sleep-inducing drink for you.
