Top 3: Foods before bedtime

When our weary heads hit the pillow late at night, sometimes no matter how tired we think we are, we occasionally struggle to fall asleep. As we all know, sleep is vitally important for a healthy lifestyle and so below are a quick list of the good guys when it comes to helping you nod off.

  • Cherries

Cherries are one of the few natural foods to contain melatonin, the chemical that helps control our body’s internal clock. Previous studies have also revealed that cheery juice can also be effective in improving sleep duration.

  • Jasmine Rice

This type of rice is digested slowly by the body releasing glucose gradually into the bloodstream. Studies suggest this helps promote better sleep, potentially halving the amount of time it took for people to fall asleep when they eat this 4 hours before going to bed.

  • Bananas

Bananas help promote sleep because they contain the natural muscle-relaxants magnesium and potassium. They’re also carbs which will help make you sleepy as well.

Is there anything else which you’ve found helps you fall asleep? Let us know below in the comments section.
