Insomnia goodbye! The food that helps you sleep.
Sleep problems can be a symptom of many diseases and poor health, but sometimes also caused by improper eating habits especially certain late evening meals. To aid sleep you can take, a whole variety of foods that have a relaxing power.
Toast: a slice of toasted- bread is rich in carbohydrates that stimulates the production of insulin, which increases the levels of serotonin and tryptophan in the brain, which in turn encourages relax and helps you enter the world of dreams.
Cherries: either fresh or dried are rich in melatonin being the chemical that controls body's internal clock that regulates sleep . It’s worthwhile to take a portion an hour before going to bed.
Bananas: rich in potassium and magnesium are natural muscle relaxants, bananas are also a good source to mentally. They also contain the amino acid L-tryptophan, which is converted into 5 -HTP in the brain. The 5 -HTP in turn is converted into serotonin (relaxing neurotransmitter) and melatonin.
Oats: This has an action similar to bread, a bowl of oatmeal generates a rise in blood sugar, which in turn generates the production of insulin, which increases the levels of serotonin and tryptophan in the brain. In addition, oats are also rich in melatonin.
Warm milk: like bananas, milk contains the amino acid L- tryptophan, which turns to 5-HTP and releases relaxing serotonin . It’s also rich in calcium, which encourages sleep. I have personally discovered that milk works. On the other hand, to take a cup of milk with honey, was a tip that my grandmother gave me when I was stressed and a bit stretched before going to bed. Moreover, it also usually given to small children for the same purpose.
