TOP SLEEP-INDUCING FOODS


It is not always necessary to depend upon the Sleeping Pills to have a Good night's Sleep when you got nature's best Sleep inducers in your kitchen. Here is the list of top sleep-inducing Foods that will help you to sleep soundly every night:

BANANA
Banana is practically the best sleep-inducing food. Banana helps to release melatonin and serotonin in our body. These two are hormones, which relax our body. In addition, they contain magnesium, which helps in relaxing the body muscles.

WARM MILK
Studies show that milk has tryptophan, a kind of amino acid that has sedative properties. Milk is also a rich source of calcium. Calcium helps the brain to utilize tryptophan, which results in deep sleep.

HONEY
Honey works like magic when you are wide-awake on your bed, waiting to fall asleep. It has been proved that a little honey in your herbal tea and warm milk signals your brain to turn off orexin. Orexin is recently discovered neurotransmitter that helps us to stay awake and alert. A slight word of caution here, too much sweet can stimulate your brain instead.

POTATOES
Carbohydrates like potatoes help to clean all the acids in the gastrointestinal tract. This leads to washing out all those components that block the effects of tryptophan. A small bowl of mashed potatoes will not hurt your body and your diet regime at all. Mix one or two boiled potatoes with small amount of warm milk and mash it. Your sleep food is ready to eat!

WHOLE-WHEAT BREAD
Whole-wheat bread with honey is helpful to release insulin in the body. Insulin helps tryptophan reach the brain, where it is converted to serotonin. Serotonin in turn induces sleep.
