Sleep Health

Sleep disorders can be one of the biggest health problems because a lack of sleep or poor quality sleep can end up affecting our overall health. There are several different sleep disorders. From those who can't sleep to those who sleep too much, this imbalance in the normal sleep cycle can lead to serious health consequences, both physical and mental.

Can't get to sleep? Complex carbohydrates mixed with a little bit of protein may help you drift into dreamland, according to experts. The perfect combo is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Peanut butter contains tryptophan, a chemical known to cause sleepiness. Use whole wheat bread for your complex carbohydrates and you will have a healthy snack as well as a good night's sleep.
