Foods That Promote Better Sleep

While you can get better sleep by avoiding certain foods before bed, there are also some foods that promote better sleep.

Foods high in tryptophan help produce the sleep hormone, melatonin.  Good food sources of tryptophan are turkey and chicken.  Also try, lentils, tuna, whole grains, and nuts.

Tart cherries, cherry juice, and oats are high in melatonin.

Bananas, potatoes, apricots, and milk are high in magnesium and potassium.  These help to relax muscles.

Smaller, regular meals through the day also help promote better sleep.
