WHAT CAN YOU EAT TO SLEEP BETTER?

WHAT CAN YOU EAT TO SLEEP BETTER?

Insomnia, it's no fun. Did you know that there are foods that help you sleep, though? Of course, heavy, fatty meals or caffeine are not a good idea in any case. But we'll give you an overview of what you can eat before you slip under your down blanket. 

CHERRIES

These fruits naturally contain melatonin, a so-called sleep hormone that is normally (if you don't have insomnia) produced by your brain in the evening and at night. This substance puts your body in 'sleep mode': your body temperature drops and you become sleepy.

The older you get, the less melatonin your brain produces itself. That is why a lot of people over the age of 50 get sleeping problems. So it's certainly a good idea to eat a handful of cherries before going to sleep!

NUTS

Eating nuts half an hour before bedtime helps you fall asleep. Nuts contain tryptophan, a substance that not only gives you a better mood but also regulates your sleep rhythm. Other foods that contain tryptophan are bananas, soy beans, tuna and milk. So grandmother's sleeping remedy, warm milk with honey, might work!

WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

If you want to sleep well, you can try whole grains in the form of bread, rice or pasta. The best effect is obtained if you combine this in a meal with proteins (egg, chicken, turkey, ...).

KIWI

This fruit is full of antioxidants, good for cell renewal and better sleep quality. Antioxidants actually have an anti-inflammatory effect. Eating one or two kiwis a day will undoubtedly do your body good.

AVOCADO

Magnesium is found in avocado, as in many leafy vegetables. Magnesium influences sleep quality in a positive way. You sleep more soundly and wake up refreshed. A soothing bite before you crawl into bed? Replace the chips in front of the TV with wholemeal crackers with guacamole!

Enjoy and good night!
