Juicy Power:How to fight sleeping disorder

Getting a good night sleep is crucial for the way you feel during the day. As a consequence to lack of sleep your professional and personal life and general health may suffer greatly, this makes sleeping disorder one of the most dangerous conditions. Different factors affect your sleep: stress, illness, noises, wrong bedtime habits like eating high energy food right before going to bed, etc. But whatever the factors are one thing is certain- this is a problem that needs to be solved. And the best solution in my opinion is always found in mother nature. And mother nature has 3 juice recipes waiting to give you your good night sleep back:

Recipe number one is carrot and spinach juice
  • 290 grams carrots (10.2 oz)
  • 210 grams spinach (7.4 oz)


celery

The second recipe is carrot and celery juice

  • 260 grams carrots (9.2 oz)
  • 200 grams celery (7 oz)
  • Note: If you use the celery leafs make it 290 grams (10.2 oz) carrots and 170 grams (6 oz) celery.


beetroot


The last one is Carrots, Beetroot and Cucumber

  • 290 grams carrot (10.2 oz)
  • 90 grams beetroot (3.2 oz)
  • 90 grams cucumber (3.2 oz)



These are the 3 vegetable juice recipes I know of, try them out and choose the one that has the best effect on you. I'm sure that mother nature will once again make your life better!


Just in case these recipes don't work for you, or you simply don't believe in the power of vegetable juices I will suggest Alteril.

Unlike sleeping pills, which are habit-forming, Alteril is a natural sleep aid, consisting of some of the best-known herbal sleep aids out there, including melatonin, valerian root, chamomile and lemon balm. And, notably, tryptophan and theanine.

Alteril induces deep, long-lasting, refreshing sleep. On those nights when the Sandman seems occupied, it's an insurance policy, to put your mind at ease just knowing it's there. And that's the kind of reassurance that can hasten your date with dreamland.

I am surprised that beet juice is helpful for sleeping. I use it before running, it increases my energy levels.

Will try the juices, thank you for suggesting them. Also, Alteril is great. Glad I found it about 2 years ago.

Angela, yes beet root helps sleeping because it has a positive effect on blood flow, digestion and blood pressure, all of which are essential for a good night sleep.

Maybe I shoud have mentioned that these juices should be consumed during the day, instead of right before going to sleep. If you do the letter, than you are right- your energy levels will get a boost and you will have an even harder time falling a sleep.

And to Anonymous, I am happy that you found your solution and it is working well up to this day :)

~I'd love to try this for my ex-hubby ~However, it would be nice to see the number of Carrots / Beets / Cucumbers etc. instead of the # of grams. About how many carrots = 290 grams?

SSotirov said...

Hello Corina :) Here is a very helpful list for you

http://www.drgourmet.com/recipes/equivalents.shtml

So 290 grams = 10.2 Oz = 3 medium
carrots and a very small one

1 Medium Beet is 8 Oz. You only need 90 grams which is 3.2 Oz so a little less than half a beet

And for the cucumber it is also half a medium one.

I hope the juices help your ex-hubby :) And I would also love if you drop by and let us know how they worked :)

So do you think as a late afternoon snack before dinner?

SSotirov said...

Hello MJ

Yes this is a good way to do it. You can also drink one in the morning another one in the afternoon. This way you will feel good throughout the entire day :)
