Editor’s Note: Information from Intermountain Healthcare.
If you don’t sleep as well as you used to, join the crowd.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than a third of adults in the U.S. sleep for less than six hours a night.
Intermountain Healthcare says this is bad news because the benefits of good sleep patterns include improved memory, better heart health, reduced stress and faster weight loss.
Intermountain says what you drink before bedtime could help you enjoy a more restful night.
Here are just 10 of the drinks you can make at home to help improve your sleep.
- Warm milk
- Almond milk
- Malted milk
- Valerian tea
- Decaffeinated green tea
- Chamomile tea
- Herbal tea with lemon balm
- Pure coconut water
- Banana smoothies
- Tart cherry juice
