Whether you want to doze your way slim, or you just want to wake up feeling more refreshed in the morning, check out these foods that help you sleep better:
Eating more fiber could be key for better sleep. Eating fiber is associated with more restorative slow-wave sleep—the more you eat, the better you sleep. Fiber prevents blood sugar surges that may lower melatonin. Get a fiber boost from beans and cereal.
Most fish and especially salmon and tuna—boast vitamin B6, which is needed to make melatonin.
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.
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 sleep-inducing hormone triggered by darkness.
A bowl of your favorite flakes before bed could help you get better sleep. The snack combines two components for getting some sleep carbohydrates (from the cereal) and calcium (from the milk).
