Tough time falling asleep? According to the Stanford Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine, nearly 1 in 10 adults in the United States suffers from insomnia. Insomnia can cause a lot of health problems. We need to have good quality sleep at night to function fully during the day.
Eating and smelling onions can make a person sleepy. This is because onions are rich in L-tryptophan, which is an amino acid that is a natural sedative.
L-tryptophan is one of the ten essential amino acids the body cannot make on its own, but we can only get it through food. There is a great research on L-Tryptophan to confirm that it improves sleep quality.
L-Tryptophan is necessary in the creation of melatonin and serotonin, two neurotransmitters necessary for good sleep. These two hormones work together: melatonin regulates your body’s circadian rhythm while serotonin informs your brain that it’s time to sleep. The end result – falling back asleep fast!
Trouble falling asleep? Try onions
All you need to do is cut into a raw onion and take 5-10 deep breaths of the aroma. Put it in a glass jar or zip lock bag. Place it by your bedside and smell it right before you lay down
