Lots of us swear by our bedtime tea—and many companies make teas specifically geared to helping you get a better night's sleep. But do these concoctions actually work, or are they mostly placebo? We had a couple of nutritionists peek at the most common ingredients to weigh in on their actual effects on tiredness and sleep.
