A lack of sleep is a common complaint; according to a recent study by the BBC only one in 10 of us think we always get a good night’s kip.
Multiple studies have found a clear relationship between the quantity and quality of sleep and health problems, such as the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and depression. A lack of sleep is also believed to suppress the immune system, leaving you vulnerable to infections and increased appetite, contributing to weight gain.
A nice cup of herbal tea (chamomile or green) before bed can minimise congestion and cut down on phlegm – both of which cause snoring.
Cow’s milk can trigger congestion and boosts the chances of snoring in people with lactose intolerance – instead opt for soy to avoid the problem.
Fish is full of good fatty acids that can reduce inflammation in the body and calm you down.
