We’re kicking things off with one you may not have heard of. Melatonin is a supplement that can help you sleep. But what you may not know is that it’s also found in various foods. Ideally, this nutrient is supposed to be created by the pineal gland in your brain. But when things are off, you have to get it elsewhere.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Various studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids can improve the quality of your sleep. Unlike melatonin, however, your body cannot produce omega-3 fatty acids naturally. You will need to get it from your diet.
One of the vitamins that helps your circadian (sir-kade-ee-uhn) rhythm is vitamin D. This particular vitamin keeps the sleep-wake cycle in perfect rhythm. However, it turns out at least 40% of Americans aren’t getting the proper Vitamin D.
Here’s a scary discovery. According to experts, nearly half of the American population isn’t getting enough magnesium. I know many of us don’t think much about magnesium. I mean, it’s not something that I’m constantly stressing over. Well, if you’re not getting good sleep, you’re going to want to take it seriously. Magnesium is important if you want a good night’s rest.
This one is really important. Iron is another mineral the general population tends to lack. This is especially true for women. When you have iron-deficiency anemia, your body is unable to make the proper amount of hemoglobin.
Have you ever heard of this hormone? If you’ve ever suffered from depression, you likely have. Serotonin is famously linked to regulating your mood and anxiety levels. If you have a low amount of serotonin in your body, your mood will decline, resulting in depression.
Potassium is linked to sodium. Both work to keep your blood pressure levels in check. Even though potassium deficiency is not quite as common as the others on the list, it can still affect the quality of your sleep.
B Vitamins keep your brain functioning properly.
