Authen-tip: Nutrition for Restless Legs Syndrome and Iron Deficiency

There is nothing worse that trying to fall asleep at night when you can’t stop moving your legs! Did you know that RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome) may be the result of not having enough iron in your diet? Try eating lentils, spinach, pumpkin seeds, and white beans. You can also eat shiitake mushrooms, kale, green beans, and broccoli. There are also some great supplements on the market that are rich in good-quality iron. Some studies have shown that cutting out caffeine can help with RLS. Switch to a white tea with lemon instead of a big mug of coffee! Green tea is also a good alertnative because it has a small amount of caffeine but it won’t give you the jitters.
