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 Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
