Over 30% of the United States population suffers from insomnia and more than 50% of Americans complain about not getting enough sleep.
Insomnia is categorized as the inability to sleep due to various factors. Waking up too early, frequently waking up during the night, or difficulties falling asleep.
These sleeping issues can be a result of biological, social, or psychological factors. It is different than sleep deprivation and is considered to be cause by internal factors only, not things like loud noises for example.
Yet, the outcome is the same as both lead to a lack of sleep, that in turn causes:
- Poor memory
- Lower cognitive function
- Lack of concentration
- Irritability and anger
- Fatigue during the daytime
- Headaches or migraines
- Upset stomach
- Lack of energy
- Lack of coordination
You will be happy to learn the nutmeg is one of the most potent natural treatments for sleep deprivation and insomnia. It is also a strong sedative. Stress is believe to be one of the biggest causes for insomnia. Nutmeg is rich in myristicin, an organic compound that inhibits the release of stress causing enzymes.
According to NDTV Food:
“Said to be a native of Indonesia, found in the Spice Islands, it is the seed of the fruit of an evergreen tree known as Myristica fragrans. It now grows in Malaysia, the Caribbean, and Southern India as well. It is also the only tropical tree in the world which is credited for bearing two distinct spices — nutmeg and mace.
The nutmeg tree is also valued for its medicinal properties. The leaves and other parts of the tree are used in extracting essential oil as well as nutmeg butter, which are used for the purpose of beauty and have other health benefits.
Nutmeg is packed with nutrients: minerals such as magnesium, manganese, and copper; and vitamins such as B1, B6, etc.”
Despite its other beneficial properties:
“Nutmeg has a calming effect when consumed in smaller doses. Various ancient medicinal practices credit it for its sleep-inducing and de-stressing effects.”
All you need to do is add a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg powder to a cup of water and drink it an hour before going to bed. You should never try to exceed much more than this. Women who are pregnant should also avoid using nutmeg.
You will feel the difference within a few days! Do you want to stress less, sleep better, and feel abundantly happier… without drugs or anything crazy?
