MY TOP 4 FOODS TO EAT & WHY THEY WILL HELP YOU SLEEP
WALNUTS & ALMONDS
Tryptophan is an amino acid found in walnuts that aids in the production of serotonin & melatonin, the hormones that are huge sleep boosters, whilst almonds are rich in magnesium which has been found by researchers to aid in getting you off to sleep.
Not only is a salad a super healthy food option, but lettuce is also high in lactucarium which is known for its sedative properties & in some cases has even been used as a substitute for opium! These crisp leaves will sedate the nervous system and ensure you get a good night's sleep.
You've probably heard that chamomile tea is a good sleep aid thanks to the calming & soothing effect on the body, however the pretty looking herb valerian, might be a better option as studies have found it to not only reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, but also improves sleep quality too.
Tuna is high in vitamin B6 which is vital in your body's production of melatonin & serotonin. Melotonin is the hormone responsible for the regulation of the body clock & is usually triggered by a change in light, whilst serotonin regulates sleep and calms the body.
