We all love and need great sleep.
The kind of sleep that helps keep you feeling fresh throughout the day.
Even though avoiding technology and drinking liquids before bed is now a given, eating the right food is just as important.
Nutritionist, Stephanie Middleberg has advised to add the below foods into your diet.
Rich in vitamin B, whole grains turn amino acid, tryptophan into serotonin and melatonin. All in turn aid in helping get a good night sleep.
A cup of soothing chamomile tea can work wonders when it comes to sleep. Although, be sure to avoid teas that contain caffeine!
Protein heavy foods
Consuming turkey, cottage cheese, eggs and milk during the day can actually benefit you when hitting the hay.
Tryptophan can be found in these foods, and like whole grains release both serotonin and melatonin.
A spoonful before bed or mixed with chamomile tea can aid in a more enjoyable sleep.
The natural sugars found in honey heighten insulin levels and help tryptophan enter the brain.
High in magnesium, almonds improve brainpower and in turn help put it to bed.
Magnesium plays a vital role in sleep as the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine found that it is harder to fall asleep when magnesium levels are low.
In fact most nuts are great for sleep, incorporating them into your diet can work wonders.
