Nature has many ways of contributing to our good health. Here are a few foods to eat to help you sleep better:
Most fish—and especially salmon, halibut and tuna—boast vitamin B6, which is needed to make melatonin (a sleep-inducing hormone triggered by darkness).
Dairy products like yogurt and milk boast healthy doses of calcium—and there’s research that suggests being calcium-deficient may make it difficult to fall asleep.
3. Whole Grains
Whole grains are rich in magnesium and it is necessary to consume adequate magnesium to aid sleep.
Bananas, well-known for being rich in potassium, are also a good source of Vitamin B6, which is needed to make melatonin which is a hormone necessary for sound sleep.
Eating peanuts helps your body produce tryptophan, which is necessary for the proper function of your bodily sleep mechanism. So stock up on peanuts and peanut butter today!
Now there’s no need for you to reach for sleeping pills when you can’t fall asleep. Eat and sleep! Doesn’t get any better than that!
