The Connection Between Diet & Sleep

The Connection Between Diet & Sleep

Health and nutrition are becoming more prevalent than ever. We see gluten-free, vegan, and other options at almost every restaurant and all of these qualities being proudly advertised on food labels. Many of us are implementing and following these suggestions, but how do we know if our bodies are healthy?

There's many things sleep can tell us about our health. Specific foods may offer benefits to our body and improve our sleep. For example, avocados contain significant amounts of magnesium which may assist in a better night's rest. Also, foods such as salmon and eggs offer high amounts of vitamin B6 which is beneficial for nervous system health and may result in improved sleep quality, especially if your body is deficient in this important nutrient. Dreams are most memorable when we have optimal levels of vitamins and nutrients in our systems? If we are not dreaming, our bodies may be deficient in a nutrient not adequately obtained through the diet.

Sleeping better and keeping your body nourished go hand-in-hand. What tweak can you make to improve your sleep and be a healthier you?
