Drink Bone Broth To Help You Sleep!
There are so many benefits of bone broth but maybe one you didn’t know about was that you can drink bone broth to help you sleep!
A good night’s sleep is crucial for good health. Sleep is the time when many of our biological processes take place – the body repairs cells, restores energy and releases hormones. It’s a natural reboot for our bodies.
Lack of sleep is associated with a wide range of health problems including lowered immunity, heart disease, strokes, obesity and dementia. Getting enough sleep is really is one of the most basic but best things you can do for your health!
However many of us find sleep elusive. Our life these days is fast-paced and we are exposed to much more blue light than our ancestors, which messes with our natural circadian rhythms. We can find it hard to wind down and get that restorative sleep.
The amount of sleep you need varies between individuals but experts recommend at least 7 hours and if you can get two of those hours before midnight, even better.
So, how does bone broth play a part in helping us sleep?
Bone broth contains the amino acid, glycine which can promote healthy sleep patterns. Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter which helps you relax and unwind after a long day (and it’s way better for you than alcohol!)
This interesting study found that glycine before bed improved sleep quality and length as well as improving daytime sleepiness and cognitive function.
Drinking bone broth one hour before bed could be the solution to your insomnia and sleep issues.
This is great news for people who want a natural solution to insomnia instead of sleeping pills that leave you feeling groggy. Plus you get all the other amazing benefits of bone broth as well!
Unwind with a cup of comforting bone broth before bed for a couple of weeks and see how your sleep goes.
Using bone broth powders, it’s really easy and convenient to get your daily cup of broth. Just a teaspoon or two to a mug, add boiling water, stir well and sip. You might like to add extra seasonings, lemon juice or herbs to taste.
