If your having troubles sleeping there's plenty of NATURAL and healthy ways to fix your sleeping issue. Many people go straight to the doctor and get prescribed some bullshit sleeping pill that they don't really need which is way over priced and actually harms your health. Here are a few ways to help your sleep without ruining your health.
1. L-tryptophan is a natural amino acid which may help promote sleep! This amino acid was used and still is used by 3 time Mr. Olympian Frank Zane. L-trypthan promotes mood by increasing serotonin in the brain naturally. L-trypthan allows for your body to get more REM sleep which promotes growth and better sleep.
2. Melatonin is naturally found in plants and is secreted from animals. Melatonin is often used to help promote sleep and also promotes REM sleep which allows the body to get better sleep and promotes dreaming.
3. Stop drinking caffeine after six pm. The reason for this is because caffeine is a stimulant and will keep you awake. It will also disrupt your REM sleep pattern. In America the average person drinks about 200 MG's of caffeine a day. Coffee from Star Bucks and the likes can put a hole in your pocket as well imagine if you took your 3 dollars spent on star bucks everyday that's 21 dollars a week so your spending 84 a month it doesn't seem like a lot but at the end of the year that's a total of 1,0008 a year! Imagine what you could do with that money. Save it and buy something nice.
4. Drink water. Water will help your body remain functional and will make your body not work so hard. Water also promotes proper functions in the brain to promote sleep. If you don't have the water to carry the minerals to the brain then you wont get the nutrients. Remember our bodies are mostly water so when you sweat, after a workout you need to replenish the fluids otherwise you'll get headaches etc. Lack of water may cause stroke, and kidney stones.
