Tuesday's Tip Jar - Essential Sleep Nutrients

Last week I've discussed here some tips on fighting insomnia and one of the best way is to use the breathing method. Breathing method is just like the old way of counting sheep but this time it's the breath that you have to count and not the sheep lol!

Well not all insomnia can be treated with the breathing method as some people lack the necessary vitamins and minerals in our diet. Actually all you need is a multi-vitamin to be sure you're getting the nutritional elements needed for a good proper sleep. Little did we know that lack of iron and copper can disrupt your rest and sleep.

So now we should list here the sources of the two mineral supplements so we can start supplying our body. For iron you can munch on almonds or raisins and drink a glass of warm milk before hitting the bed. For copper we have many sources of this mineral and one of the best is clams; other sources are apricots, grape nuts cereal and whole wheat pasta. So you can mix in milk, grape nuts cereal and a few raisins in your bowl and you're sure to hit the sack! Happy sleep then!
