Foods to Reduce Sleep Apnea

Magnesium-rich foods

Unlike the other foodstuffs mentioned so far, magnesium doesn’t work its magic in relation to melatonin. In stark contrast with calcium, tryptophan, and melatonin supplements, magnesium can help sleep apnea sufferers to sleep better at nights by counteracting adrenaline’s effect in our body. In this manner, those that regularly consume magnesium-rich foods have an easier time relaxing and getting a good night’s rest. Furthermore, regular consumption of these foodstuffs can also indirectly help in stress management, as well as producing well-adjusted reactions to daily adversities. 

Magnesium can be easily found in some leafy greens such as kale and spinach, as well as in dry fruits and legumes, including soybeans and nuts. Furthermore, they can also be found in other products such as fish, bananas, avocados, and yogurts, among others.
