5 Clean Foods You Have to Try to Get More Sleep

August 20, 2015 2 min read

Lack of sleep does a number on our mental and physical state. And the more frequently it happens, the more likely we are to develop a paranoia that we'll never achieve the sleep we need or desire. And though the thought of swallowing a pill to put the pain of sleepless nights to rest sounds like a quick fix, there are a plethora of holistic remedies people ought to try first. And then there's food! We already make eating a large part of our daily lives, so why not incorporate foods that can aid in giving us the beauty sleep we so wish for! And no, not the "food coma" sorts, packed with empty calories that will just sit in our stomachs all night long, but the clean, good for you and your waistline kind. Here are five to try. 1. Mozzarella Cheese fresh mozarella This cheese packs twice as much tryptophan — an amino acid that gives your body the go ahead to produce more serotonin — as turkey does. 2. Salmon salmon The fish packs incredible health benefits, making it a much-loved superfood to try. A recent study concluded that getting 600 mg of omega-3 fatty acids a day resulted in people sleeping almost a whole hour longer! It also found that people were 7 times less likely to wake up throughout the night. 3. Almonds almonds Along with being a good source of tryptophan, a handful of these nuts gives your body 20 percent of your daily recommended magnesium intake, which can help to relax muscles and promote the feeling of calmness in your body. 4. Oatmeal oatmeal Filled with carbs, oatmeal can help to fill you up and provide your body with a healthy feeling of fullness. It is also a good source of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, so eat up! 5. Bananas bananas Offering up another great source of tryptophan, bananas are also rich in magnesium as well as potassium, which is another muscle relaxer. Have you tried any of these foods to help you catch your Z's? Source: Prevention   Do you follow us on Instagram?

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.
