Nutrients That Calm Down The Nervous System
Sleeping pills are not always the answer for sleeping problems. Instead relying on pills or taking unnecessary night caps, try some supplements or herbs that have a calming effect half an hour to an hour before bedtime. Supplements for sleep and stress help relax the mind and body whilst replenishing the nervous system to help improve sleep quality.
There are several popular nutrients including vitamins that can be helpful, these include:- Magnesium, magnesium deficiency is responsible for nervousness that prevents sleep.
|ÿ||Magnesium-rich foods include kelp, wheat bran, almonds, cashews, blackstrap molasses, and brewer’s yeast. The lack of calcium and magnesium can cause leg cramps during the night. Calcium and magnesium produce calming effects on the brain. They are essential for normal sleep. Calcium and magnesium taken 45 minutes before bedtime have a tranquilizing effect. |
Tryptophan is an amino acid required to make serotonin which is essential for maintaining and stabilising mood. In the brain, tryptophan is converted into serotonin, a natural sleep-inducing chemical. It also enhances the brain’s ability to produce melatonin, the hormone that regulates your body’s natural inner clock.
L-Taurine is an amino acid found within the body that is manufactured by other amino acids. L-Taurine supplement functions as a neuro-inhibitory transmitter, has a calming effect on the brain. It is also a potent antioxidant protecting the brain from free radicals.
Choline is another essential ingredient needed for the efficient transmission of nerve impulses from the nerve endings to the target organ. Choline may be helpful in reducing sleep problems. The stimulation barrier of the brain is increased. It helps the brain to filter out minor noises. Choline is usually grouped with the B complex vitamins. Inositol is found in Vitamin B complex and is used in the body’s cell membranes.
Inositol is said to have a calming effect on the nervous system and is therefore being studied for a possible treatment for nerve related illnesses. It is also thought to be useful as a sleep aid.
The B vitamins are known to have a sedative effect on the nerves. Vitamin B6 can help to prevent insomnia. Vitamin B12 is another important supplement for treating insomnia. Vitamin B5 is good for relieving stress. The best food sources of the B vitamins are liver, whole grains, wheat germ, tuna, walnuts, peanuts, bananas, sunflower seeds, and blackstrap molasses.

- Carrot Oil for Face Which essential oil is best mix with carrot oil for face and body
- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.
