Falling asleep can be difficult sometimes, especially when we are stressed or overwhelmed. Most times this issue can disappear by exercising for at least 10 minutes every day, avoiding caffeine or passing on heavy foods before bedtime. But if your sleep problems persist you should try natural remedies such as teas.
Unfortunately, about 30% of people suffer from insomnia, or the chronic inability to fall asleep, stay asleep or achieve restorative, high-quality sleep. Herbal teas are popular beverage choices when it comes time to relax and unwind. For centuries, they have been used around the world as natural sleep remedies. Modern research also backs the use of herbal teas and their effectiveness as a sleep aid.
Unlike prescription medications, herbal teas don’t lead to dependence and they have a low risk of side effects or complications when they are used for a short time. However, consult your doctor about any potential interactions between an herb you’d like to use and any medical conditions you have or medications you’re taking.
