Drinks That May Help You To Sleep Better

Updated on March 20, 2015

Are you having trouble sleeping? While these drinks may help with sleep issues for some people, it does not mean that they will work for everyone. Experimenting with these beverages will prove which ones help you to sleep and which ones do not. Here are some beverages that may help you to relax and get a more restful sleep.


Yogi Bedtime Tea

Yogi Bedtime tea is a caffeine free tea that may help to promote a more restful sleep for some people. Some of the ingredients in the tea are Valerian Root, Chamomile, Skullcap, Spearmint Leaf, Licorice Root and St. John's Wort Leaf. I think this tea tastes delicious. It is a sweet herbal tea and I only added just a small touch of honey to it.

One of the ingredients in the tea, Valerian Root, may help a person to feel relaxed. However, in some people, it may have an opposite effect and may make them feel more awake. You may want to experiment with this tea to see if it helps you fall asleep. It did not help me, but I know of others who have had good results using this tea for sleep issues.


Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea has a calming effect and it may help you to relax and fall asleep if you drink it before bedtime. The tea works as a mild sedative and might be beneficial for those who have trouble sleeping. It may also help to calm your nerves and any anxiety that you may be experiencing. If you find that chamomile tea does not help you with sleep, try using two teabags instead of one to see if has a better effect.


Neuro Sleep Nutritional Supplement Drink

Neuro Sleep is a nutritional supplement drink that contains five dietary ingredients to help with sleep. These five ingredients are melatonin, L-theanine, magnesium, 5-HTP and taurine. The drink comes in a 14.5 oz fancy orange bottle and it tastes like a mixture of orange and tangerine. The drink also claims to promote feelings of well being and to support healthy mental function. Neuro Sleep has helped me to fall asleep within a half hour of drinking it and I was able to sleep longer than usual. The only downside is that the drink is pretty expensive compared to other sleep aids.


Tart Cherry Juice

Cherry juice naturally contains melatonin and tryptophan, which both help to promote sleep. Studies have shown that drinking tart cherry juice may help with the quality of sleep. If you would like to try this, drink a glass or two of this juice before bedtime to see if it helps improve the quality and duration of your sleep.


DRINKS TO AVOID

As you may already know, caffeine is a stimulant and may interfere with your sleep. If you drink caffeinated beverages, such as coffee, soda or regular tea, then it may be causing some of your sleep issues. Try to limit the amount of caffeine you drink before bedtime. Switch to decaf coffee, herbal teas and caffeine free soda and see if it helps to improve your sleep.
