Comments: The Vata and Pitta dosha are responsible for problems like insomnia. Root vegetables like beetroot and carrot help increase Kapha which helps one fall asleep. However, people who have a high blood sugar should take it in small quantities. Carrots and beetroot may also fight the oxidative damage that VP dosha dominant people are prone to.
