In a recent worldwide survey fewer than half of people said they get a good night's sleep. Dr. Tania Edwards, a wellness expert at Cleveland Clinic, says some natural aids may help you get some rest.
"My favorites are pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds for getting a good night's sleep and recent studies have shown that drinking a cup of tart cherry juice about a half hour before bedtime may also be helpful for getting sleep," Dr. Edwards says.
Dr. Edwards recommends a half cup of pumpkin seeds once or twice a day for a better night's sleep. She says foods like this which contain good amounts of magnesium could be especially helpful for sleep issues in women around the age of menopause. She says a drop in magnesium levels that happens as you get older, can affect sleep.
