Natural Insomnia Remedies for Sleepless Nights…Sleeping CAN be fun!

Yes I have insomnia, or maybe it’s just because I drink too much caffeine, or it’s probably the combination of both.

I will say that I’m no longer drinking energy drinks-aka-Red Bull, Robust, Monster, Rockstar.  It’s a huge help, but I’m still all about my coffee.

So when I cannot doze off, I’ve recently discovered this great solution.

Tryptophan!

Doesn’t it just sound like it should be illegal?  Whenever I ask for it at The Vitamin Shoppe, they look at me as if I’m asking for narcotics, but they have it.  If I ask for it at GNC, they don’t even bother looking and say they don’t carry it and look scared.

Okay.  I’m no expert at this stuff, but it’s the magical natural ingredient that’s found in turkey.  Read more about it here.

Don’t get it confused with 5-HTP.

IMPORTANT.  Capsules, NOT tablets.  Capsules dissolve quicker into the bloodstream, tablets take a little longer.

Other options: Sleepytime tea.

Okay…now I shall try and sleep. More to come soon.
