Here’s a new nighttime snack for you: Jell-O. It’s one of the best sources of glycine – an amino acid that helps our body naturally reduce our core temperature. And as you know, cooling off the body triggers our sleep hormones. Glycine also relaxes nerves and muscles and acts as a mild sedative. So have a serving of Jell-O about 2 hours before bed and you’ll sleep more deeply.
