Hi everyone. As we all know, sleeping is difficult while recuperating from a total knee replacement (aka tkr). Did you know that there are some edible sleep aides that can naturally help you drift off into a more peaceful slumber.

Once the extreme pain lessens, foods can actually be used as natural edible sleep aides to help with your tkr recuperation. They can make a difference. They did – and still do – for me, anyways. I share my firsthand experiences to help others going through the same thing.

We all experiment with different things to make sleep come easier. This is how I found out about the foods mentioned below. This combined with some research – both online and offline – set the foundation for sweet dreams.

Be aware, though, natural foods are not miracle cures. Your body has to digest the foods before you receive any benefits. (I know that’s common sense, but I had to say it.) Not all foods work for all people. We are unique individuals with unique physiologies.

Whether it is tryptophan, magnesium, protein, calcium, carbohydrates, potassium, or vitamin B6 – there is something for everyone here. So…here goes:

BANANAS
These are my favorite. A perfectly ripe banana does the trick every time. The potassium eases any pain involved, making it a surefire hit on the list of natural sleep aides. For an extra kick, mix one into some yogurt and enjoy.

YOGURT and DAIRY
Warm milk has been a natural sleep remedy since great grandmother’s youth. Any dairy product works well, though. My favorite is plain yogurt.

Plain yogurt not only settles the digestive system, the calcium helps release tryptophan into the body. According to researchers, the brain uses tryptophan to manufacture melatonin.

LEAFY GREENS
Try eating a handful of leafy greens before going to bed. I like munching on them by themselves. You may be different, though.

Leafy greens include red, butter, iceberg, romaine, kale, spinach, Or, make a simple tea by steeping some greens in hot water for two minutes. Let cool for a bit and drink.

NUTS
Enjoy a serving of walnuts, which contain noticable amounts of tryptophan. Put some on a green salad for an extra taste treat before hitting the hay.

Almonds are known for being magnesium sources. Magnesium has a reputation for being increasing sleep quality. I like eating about five whenever needed.

That’s all I can think of for now for foods that can be used as natural sleep aides. Do you have any food suggestions to share?

Find interesting? Kindly share…
