Nearly one-third of all Americans have trouble sleeping from time to time. One out of ten suffers from chronic insomnia, reports the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. The latest data reveals that factors such as poor nutrition and snoring are the chief culprits in keeping people awake at night. The Sleep Judge actively addresses this problem with common sense solutions and natural remedies to help people get a better night’s rest.
A recent study by the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine confirms what mothers and grandmothers have been saying all along: what people eat directly affects how well they sleep. Some foods are more beneficial than others, according to TheSleepJudge.com, an informational website dedicated to helping people get a better night’s slumber.
Specifically, eating foods rich in vitamin B6, including salmon and halibut, make it easier to fall asleep at bedtime. Tart cherry juice, an excellent source for melatonin– a hormone that triggers sleep — is also a smart nutritional choice for insomniacs.
Calcium is another nutrient that promotes a good night’s slumber, and people who have trouble staying asleep should snack on yoghurt or drink a glass of milk before turning in. Calcium is key for the body’s production of tryptophan, an amino acid known for its sleep-inducing properties.
Additionally, whole grains provide magnesium, which helps people relax, and foods high in potassium, such as bananas, are essentials for those who want to improve their sleep habits. Fortunately, all of these foods are nutritious and healthy in general. Data collected annually by the National Sleep Foundation confirm the fact that healthy people experience more restful sleep.
According to Frank Apodoca, owner and author of The Sleep Judge blog, a natural approach can also solve the problem of snoring. Snoring interrupts the sleep not only of the snorer but also those who are within hearing range. Simple tricks like replacing pillows regularly and raising the head of the bed can facilitate a full night of sleep for the entire household.
Dedicated to helping people get the quantity and quality of sleep they need for better health, The Sleep Judge publishes reviews of various sleep-related products as a service to consumers. The website is a valuable source of information for millions of Americans who have trouble sleeping, offering much-needed relief from long, wakeful nights.
