4 Juice Recipes To Naturally Remedy Sleep Disorders

If you struggle going to sleep at night, know that you are not alone. According to the American Sleep Association, there are roughly 50-70 million American adults who have sleep disorders. Without a good night’s rest, it is common to experience drowsiness, nodding off, trouble focusing, or feelings of irritability during the day.

 

Mental fatigue is commonly associated with sleep disorders, but not everyone accounts for the toll that sleep disorders take on the body. Getting a healthy amount of sleep every night helps the body and the brain rejuvenate. When the body is deprived of sleep, it can lead to increased stress and adrenaline levels, which can induce anxiety and unhealthy cravings that contribute to malnutrition.

 

You don’t have to suffer and you don’t have to stay up every night. You also don’t have to take medication to fall asleep now that you have the following recipes. For all of these recipes, place the ingredients in the juicer and drink the juice daily until you start experiencing better sleep.

 

Restless Leg Syndrome:

This is a neurological disorder that makes you feel the need to constantly move your legs while being still. This may cause additional itching, aching, or throbbing in your legs that causes you to move your legs even more, making a peaceful night’s sleep difficult. Try drinking this recipe to boost iron and magnesium levels.

Ingredients:

  • 10 spears of asparagus
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 lemon (peeled)
  • A handful of parsley

 

Sleep Apnea:

This common sleep disorder typically causes the person to stop breathing for several seconds because the soft tissues in the back of the throat decide to relax. Most of the time, this causes the person to wake up. It may be beneficial to eat more fibrous foods in order to stop the overproduction of mucus. When you eat inflammatory foods, sleep apnea symptoms can worsen. Eat foods like pears, artichokes, apples, or broccoli to help!

Ingredients:

  • 4 celery stalks
  • 2 Asian pears
  • 4 medium carrots
  • 1 lemon (peeled)
  • 1-inch piece of ginger root

 

Bruxism:

Commonly induced by stress or anxiety, bruxism is a condition that makes you grind your teeth throughout the night. This can cause headaches, sore jaw, or the pain can make it difficult to fall asleep if you wake up at night. People with bruxism commonly have a magnesium, calcium, or vitamin B5 deficiency. Drinking homemade green juices can improve the condition and may help to stop teeth grinding.

Ingredients:

  • 6 celery stalks
  • 4 medium carrots
  • 1 cup spinach
  • a handful of parsley
  • 1 lemon, peeled
  • 2 cups pineapple cubes

 

Insomnia:

This is probably the most common sleep disorder, with roughly 30% of American adults affected by the condition. Insomnia makes it difficult for the person to fall asleep, or the person may fall asleep but wake up early and be unable to go back to sleep. It is best to consume leafy greens like kale or spinach because they have a lot of magnesium, which helps to naturally relax muscles and combat stress hormones. Drink this juice throughout the day to help.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup spinach
  • ¼ head of Savoy cabbage
  • 3 heads Romaine lettuce
  • 2 green apples
  • 1-inch piece of ginger
  • 1 lemon, peeled

 

When you have a sleep disorder, it is best to eliminate processed foods, dairy products, flour, refined sugars, fatty foods, and meats from your diet. It is also best to get to the root of your sleep troubles in order to figure out the right natural remedy.
