Ice cream is one of the most loved desserts in existence. Ice cream comes in dozens and dozens of flavors, some with bits of other food inside like cookie dough, or sometimes flavors are mixed together like vanilla and chocolate swirl and it tastes like heaven in a bowl. Some ice creams are made with dairy and some are vegan. Some ice creams are lower in calories and some aren’t.
Some people dig into a pint of ice cream after a long day at work or a bad breakup. For others, it’s a fun treat to have on dessert night. Now, one company is saying that eating their ice cream will actually help you fall asleep and get a good night’s rest. Nightfood, a low-calorie ice cream and sleep aid, is actually designed to help you get some sleep.
The brand bills itself on being a “better nighttime snack for late night cravings,” and has eight nighttime inspired flavors of ice cream including full moon vanilla, midnight chocolate, after dinner mint chip, cold brew decaf, milk & cookie dough, bed and breakfast, cookies n’ cream, and cherry eclipse.
The key to being a sleep aid ice cream is all in the ingredients. Studies have shown that ingredients in ice cream typically aid in keeping people awake, like sugar, caffeine and sucralose. Now, Nightfood has created an ice cream to change all that. This ice cream contains that amino acid glycine, magnesium, digestive enzymes, protein, fiber, and lower sugar levels that reportedly work to better your sleep.
According to nutritionist Dr. Eddie Fatakhov, “There are several studies showing how glycine helps improve sleep and insomnia, including one that showed it helps with sleep onset.” Right now, this game changing ice cream is only available to buy online through Nigthfood’s website, but the ice cream is expected to expanding into local grocery store chains in the upcoming months.
