Some people are lucky and can fall asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow, but some spend hours tossing and turning before actually falling asleep. If you have a hard time getting to sleep, there are plenty of tricks you can try. Did you know that certain foods can help you out?
Bananas are one of them. The nutrients in bananas can help your muscles relax and even lower blood glucose levels, which will help induce sleep within an hour of eating.'
Milk is another, and probably the most classic. You hear about people having a glass of milk to get to sleep, and there's a good reason for it. Drinking milk actually helps produce serotonin which naturally calms the body.
A third food to try is nuts. Eating nuts can actually help the body produce more of the sleep-promoting hormone, melatonin.
