Food you should eat to get better sleep


Getting a good night’s sleep isn’t always a guarantee. When counting sheep just doesn’t cut it, here are some foods you can try to catch some more z’s.

Cottage cheese is a healthy option for bedtime snack. It contains an amino acid that may increase serotonin levels to fight insomnia.

Almonds are also known to indue drowsiness. The nutrient-rich nut contains high doses of melatonin to help regulate your rest.

Research also shows there may be a psychological link between a glass of milk and bedtime. A comforting cup of calcium can be a relaxing ritual to add to your nightly routine.

Eating kiwi is also a great way to get some shut-eye. The fruit is full of antioxidants that have been proven to promote sleep.
