5 Best Foods that will help you sleep Better


5 Awsum Chocolate

We told you not to eat sugar, but try this new “functional chocolate.” Awsum’s chocolates employ Ayurvedic herbs to put you to bed, as its Delhi-based creators intended to tackle lifestyle concerns they were encountering and that were exacerbated by the lockdown – anxiety, daytime tiredness, and disturbed sleep cycles. Chamomile, ashwagandha, valerian root, and passion flower are among the components in this melatonin-infused tea.

4 Chamomile Tea

Because of a flavonoid called apigenin, which activates GABA A receptors that induce sleep, Kapadia advises chamomile tea for its nerve soothing and sleep inducing qualities.

3 Bananas

Bananas are a hero meal at any time of the day or night. They’re packed with important minerals like iodine, as well as magnesium, potassium, tryptophan, vitamin B6, and fibre, all of which help you relax, stay full, and sleep better. Tart cherries and kiwis also have high melatonin levels, making them effective sleep aides.

2 Almonds

Because almonds or handmade almond milk contain high quantities of melatonin, which regulates your sleep cycle, Kapadia’s favourite sleep-inducing meal is “almonds or homemade almond milk.” They’re also repair nutrients, and because so much of the body’s repair activity occurs at night, they’re doubly beneficial. Walnuts, which contain melatonin, serotonin, and magnesium, are another alternative.

1 Milk

Milk is high in tryptophan, calcium, vitamin D, and melatonin, which all help you sleep. Make sure you’re using an unadulterated, hormone- and preservative-free brand like Sarda or Pride of Cows. When a pinch of turmeric is added to warm milk, it becomes an elixir, since haldi helps digestion and has anti-inflammatory and soothing qualities.
