If you are stressed and struggling to get a good night’s sleep, onions can be your friend and help you with this. Studies have shown that vegetables like garlic, leeks and onions are high in prebiotics, which serve as food for good stomach bacteria. These prebiotics also help these bacteria multiply, which improves overall gut health.
Onions are also rich in L-tryptophan, which is an amino acid that acts as a natural sedative. Onions can not only help you fall asleep but can also help to keep you asleep throughout the night. Other vegetables and fruits are also rich in L-tryptophan and bananas, for example, have both magnesium and potassium which can help relax your muscles.
Onions can, allegedly, help you with sleep in different ways as well. Onions are one of the most consumed vegetables in the world, but someone who doesn’t necessarily enjoy the taste of onion in their food can still benefit from it. There are a lot of different home remedies for insomnia out there and one of the most peculiar ones is known as the ‘onion jar cure’, which seems to be very effective for a lot of people. There are several different versions of this remedy, but the simpler and easier one seems to be the most popular. All you need to do is to simply slice your onion (any kind of onion will do) and store it in a jar. Before going to bed, open this jar and inhale the onion vapours for as long as you can, not overdoing it as to not cause discomfort.
If inhaling the vapours doesn’t really sound like your kind of thing, there are ways around this. If you don’t mind the taste of onions, onion tea might work wonders for helping you sleep. You can use onion slices for this, or even the onion skins. You can mix some honey in there too, to make it less bitter.
There are other teas out there that can also help you with your insomnia problems. The most popular one being chamomile tea, for its calming and relaxing properties.
