If you feel sleep deprived, you’re not alone.

According to a recent poll from the national sleep foundation, less than half of people surveyed world-wide say they get a good night’s sleep. if you’re having trouble sleeping, there are some natural aids that may help.  For a more restful night’s sleep try a half cup of pumpkin seeds once or twice a day.

Sleep problems are one of the most common issues she hears about, especially from women approaching or starting menopause. One reason for this could be a drop in magnesium levels that occurs with age.  A magnesium supplement may help if foods don’t do the trick.

If your sleep problems continue you should seek the advice of your family doctor or a sleep expert.
