Have you ever thought about ways that you can get better sleep without having to take sleeping pills? Well there are alternatives and one of those is the addition of healthier foods to your diet. Here are some great sleep boosting foods.
I’m a huge fan of cherries but I didn’t know that they help people fall asleep faster. This is because cherries are a good source of melatonin, which is a chemical that’s responsible for inducing sleep in a person’s body. A bowl of cherries with yogurt is a nice dessert to help you sleep.
Bananas are high in potassium and magnesium, and these are minerals that get the muscles in a calm state so you can sleep well. Since warm milk also assists with sleep, you can have warm milk with sliced bananas for a late night snack.
Folic acid is important in getting in a good night’s sleep and leafy greens are excellent to eat for this purpose. Eat a spinach and kale salad before bedtime or you can make a spinach smoothie with a little tomato juice.
Those who are deficient in vitamin A tend to suffer from sleep deficiency and since eggs are high in vitamin A, eggs should be consumed on a regular basis. If you’re on a diet, avoid fried eggs and eat poached or boiled eggs instead.
These are just a few of several delicious foods that can get you to sleep in a healthy way.
