Bedtime Teas for Better Sleep Part 1

While there is some evidence that the body is better able to absorb nutrients during sleep, the difference is likely negligible. If you choose to drink tea, you can enjoy the potential benefits at any time of the day or night. Some people experience a calming effect after drinking a warm, cup of tea before bedtime.

Here are a few bedtime teas for better sleep :

  • Chamomile – Chamomile is one of the most popular bedtime tea drank by people struggling with sleep. Distinguished by its tiny daisy like flowers, chamomile has been used by civilisations for over two thousand years to treat stress, anxiety and insomnia.
  • Lavender – Lavender is widely identified with aromatherapy, where its sweet floral fragrance promotes calmness and eases stress. It is equally effective when taken as herbal tea, especially in promoting sleep.
  • Passion flower – Visually striking flowers that bloom on a climbing plant, passion flowers have been used by the native Americans for hundreds of years. Of more than 500 species available, passiflora incarnate is used to treat mental related disorders like anxiety and depression.
  • Decaf Green Tea – Green tea is not only taken as a beverage but also treasured for its medicinal properties in China. Once removed of caffeine, green tea has been proven to promote sleep.

      For years, chamomile tea has been used as a natural remedy to reduce inflammation and anxiety and treat insomnia. In fact, chamomile is commonly regarded as a mild tranquilizer or sleep inducer. Its calming effects may be attributed to an antioxidant called apigenin, which is found in abundance in chamomile tea.
