Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs Used For Insomnia

Insomnia and the inability to sleep may be caused by low blood sugar, anxiety, depression, heat or cold, or caffiene.

There are so many people that suffer from lack of sleep. I once had this problem. Once I cleaned up my diet and got rid of the caffiene for good (except for my ocassional morning green tea) it changed my life. It was one of the hardest things I ever did...I loved my starbucks! But now, I find that I don't even need it anymore.

Studies show that caffiene can linger in your system for up to 8 hours. So many people think that it doesn't affect your sleep, but it does. If you drink more then one cup a day or have a sensitive system, consider ditching the habit.

Try juicing green juice for breakfast instead

Foods high in calcium, magnesium and B vitamins supply nutrients to the nerves, allowing for restful sleep. Most people who have sleep problems often seem to be deficient in these nutrients.

Fruits and vegetables to juice for insomnia:

Apples, Bananas, Lettuce, Leafy Greens

Herbs to juice or add to juice:

Chamomile, Lavender, Lemon Balm, Passionflower, Skullcap, St. John's Wart, Valerian, Wild Lettuce

I personally love the powdered supplement packets by Peter Gilliam called "Natural Calm." They balance calcium intake and restores magnesium in your body. It can be added to water or juice.

They not only calm you during the day, but help prepare you for a restful sleep at night!

Some good recipes to try..

  • 4 spinach leaves
  • 2 kale leaves
  • 1 beet
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1 apple


3 apples + 3 stalks of celery

Apples and celery make a great calming nightcap drink.

I personally have found that lavender, chamomile or valerian herbal tinctures work well.
