While the mental fatigue that comes with a sleep disorder is difficult to deal with, the lack of sleep can also have an impact on your physical health. You need to sleep to rest your brain and for your body to rejuvenate.

There are many different issues that can lead to difficulty sleeping, including a number of sleep disorders. Here are four of the most common sleep disorders, along with juice recipes that could help you overcome your sleep dysfunction. Drink daily till sleep comes and you’ll start feeling rested.

 

4 Juice Recipes To Remedy Sleep Disorders

1. Insomnia

Insomnia is perhaps the most common sleep disorder. It is estimated that about 30% of Americans claim to suffer from this condition. Insomnia results in poor sleep due to difficulty falling and staying asleep. People with insomnia may also wake up early have trouble getting back to sleep. This causes difficulty concentrating and general fatigue.

Leafy vegetables, such as spinach or cabbage, contain high content of magnesium. Magnesium is known to help relax muscles and calm nerves, which may help you get to sleep. Try this juice recipe containing both spinach and cabbage:

  • ¼ head of Savoy cabbage
  • A handful of spinach
  • 3 heads of Romaine lettuce
  • 2 green apples
  • 1-inch of ginger root
  • 1 lemon

For this juice recipe, and the other three below, wash all of the ingredients and cut them to sizes that fit the chute of your juicer. Put them through your juicer, starting with the smaller pieces.

 

2. Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is another fairly common sleep disorder. Sleep apnea causes you to stop breathing for several seconds, as the result of blockage from the relaxing of the soft tissues in the back of your throat. This disruption in breathing can cause you to wake up.

Eating more food containing fiber could help reduce an overproduction of mucus. Increasing mucus production may increase the severity of your sleep apnea symptoms.

Try to eat more broccoli, apples, pears, artichokes, and this juice recipe that help reduce catarrh:

  • 4 ribs of celery
  • 2 Asian pears
  • 4 carrots
  • 1-inch of ginger root
  • 1 lemon

 

3. Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless leg syndrome is basically a neurological disorder that manifests itself as the need to move your legs while resting.

You may experience an itching, aching, pulling, or throbbing sensation along your legs that increases with intensity until you move your legs. This can make it difficult to fall asleep, leading to a bad night.

Consuming more iron and magnesium may help reduce the occurrence of symptoms related to restless leg syndrome, allowing to get a better night’s rest. Try the following recipe, containing iron and magnesium-rich fruit and vegetables:

  • 10-12 spears of asparagus
  • 2 cups of broccoli florets
  • 4 ribs of celery
  • 1 bulb of fennel
  • A handful of parsley
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 lemon

Here’s another juice recipe and more information about Restless Leg Syndrome.

 

4. Bruxism

 

Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, is commonly believed to be the result of stress or anxiety. When you constantly grind your teeth during the night, you may end up waking to a headache or a sore jaw. This pain can make it hard to fall asleep again.

A lack of vitamin B5, magnesium, or calcium could be partially responsible for your teeth grinding. Studies have found that drinking green juices is a good remedy for many individuals suffering from bruxism. Here is a simple green drink that you can make at home:

  • 4 carrots
  • 6 ribs of celery
  • A handful of spinach
  • A handful of parsley
  • ¼ of a pineapple
  • 1 lemon

If you are having trouble sleeping, you should try to determine if one of these sleep disorders could be responsible for your problems. Get to the root of the cause and then try the corresponding juice recipe.

Eliminate from your diet:  Processed foods, dairy products, flour and sugar foods that are high in fats and low in fiber. Then, drink your juice on a daily basis and you will likely see some improvement.

  1. I have trouble sleeping, and after trying your Insomnia recipe, my this problem has been solved. Thank you.

  2. There are times when I’m having difficulty sleeping. I’ll keep tab of your insomnia recipe and give it a try 🙂

    1. Thank you for asking. For these juices that help you sleep, it is best to drink them in the early evening. If you don’t fall asleep easily the first time you drink them, persist and drink daily at the same time. Eventually sleep will come easy. Happy juicing!

    I am just starting the juicing and have much to learn. I am old and on a fixed income so when I am looking at this I am focused on certain issues and using juice to help in those areas. My wife and I are both diabetic so I spend much time searching through recipes because so many of them have so much fruit in them.
    My wife also was born with Cardiomyopathy – The worst kind. She was a tester for implants and that has extended her life beyond what was common at the time of 40 year old. She is on the trans[plant list now and does have the doctors blessing on juicing as long as they can see the recipe first. The one for insomnia they are ok with but my question is ( and this is my lack of experience I am sure ) – That seemed to be a lot of juice. How much juice should it make ? Perhaps my romaine was larger than what you meant. Anyway we are enjoying this site and are planning to look at the diabetic recipes as soon as we get her sleeping
    Thank you
