Tea for Your: Insomnia

Spring is in the air, and daylight saving time is around the corner. While we all love our longer days, according to Michael J. Breus, PhD, the setting and resetting of the 24-hour cycle affects our circadian rhythm (our internal clock). By having to go to bed at a new “earlier” time than normal, we find ourselves unable to fall asleep or stay asleep. To help aid in your transition, try a tea that contains valerian root. It has been shown to help those with insomnia but can also ease asthma, headaches, and upset stomachs. Choose to make your own brew or buy one of our tea choices.
