Are there any supplements/herbs you’d recommend for staying asleep? I have my pre-bed routine down pat, so I rarely struggle to fall asleep. However, I tend to wake up at night with a pronounced difficulty for falling back asleep as I tend to feel wired and amped. I presume that this is a consequence of me working out in the morning before work and that my body starts preparing for that activity. The issue is less pronounced when life affords me to work out at other hours but I still tend to be wide awake for at least a solid hour in the middle of the night (usually more) whatever the season.
For falling asleep, if I feel the need, I’ll have some herbal tea (chamomile, passionflower or a blend with valerian root, lavender, chamomile and licorice root). I routinely have magnesium or ZMA before bed. I have plenty of carbs at dinner. My caffeine intake is concentrated to the early AM and I’ll occasionally have some green tea before mid-afternoon. In extreme cases I’ll have melatonin. I take my vitamin D supplement at lunch to not affect my circadian rhythm negatively.
