It's 1 am on a Tuesday, and you're wide awake. Tossing and turning in bed all night made your morning even worse.
You’ve tried meditation, and you turned off your phone an hour earlier, but it still isn’t helping. What you need is a nighttime routine that helps release neurotransmitters to make you sleepy.
Enter herbal tea. Drinking tea before bed can be a great way to soothe your soul, relax your mind, and help you drift off to sleep – it’s just a matter of drinking the right kind. Packed with caffeine-free, herbal and healthy ingredients, Lei Cha’s Dreamy Date is not only delicious, it can also effectively prepare you for a restorative night’s sleep.
Let’s have a look at Dreamy Date’s recipe for sweet dreams:
Red dates – otherwise known as Jujube fruits
Jujube’s high saponin content means it acts as a natural sedative and has a soothing effect on rattled nerves. Packed with flavonoids, phenols and antioxidants, the fresh jujube fruit has 20 times more vitamin C than citrus fruits. It is also dense in manganese and iron and boasts 18 out of the 24 essential amino acids.
Studies conducted at Tohaku University in Japan show that isoflavones found in soybeans have the potential to alleviate the effects of insomnia. There’s also evidence that the estrogen-like compounds found in soy can help postmenopausal women get a better night’s sleep.
Black Sesame Seeds
Sesame contains stress-relieving minerals such as magnesium and calcium. It also contains amino acid tryptophan that helps produce serotonin, which improves your mood and helps you sleep better by restoring more regular sleeping patterns.
Apart from these key ingredients, Dreamy Date includes black turtle beans, adzuki beans, barley, kidney beans, millet green peas, oats and other natural ingredients. It’s packed full of all-natural goodness to keep you happy, healthy and well-rested at night.
It’s really not surprising that sleep doesn’t come easily to everyone. Luckily, there are plenty of natural remedies like Lei Cha’s Dreamy Date that are designed to help improve sleep patterns so you can have the best start to your morning!
