how Eating well can help you sleep?
Eating right doesn’t just improve your physical health, it also leads to healthy sleeping. The best foods for your total health are also good for restful sleep. Indeed, what you eat has a dramatic effect on how you sleep. Eating foods rich in fiber and low in saturated fats can help you fall asleep faster and increase the amount of deep sleep you get during the night. Too much sugar during the day may increase your middle of the night wakeups. Foods that contain high levels of B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, and polyunsaturated fatty acids can help regulate melatonin—a hormone made by the pineal gland that plays a role in sleep—production. You can even boost your melatonin levels by eating foods that naturally contain melatonin, like barley, rice, olive oil, walnuts, and tomatoes.
Foods with good levels of B vitamins: leafy greens, salmon, eggs, legumes, and sunflower seeds.
Foods with good levels of magnesium: dark chocolate, avocados, seeds, nuts, whole grains, and legumes.
Foods with good levels of zinc: Legumes, seeds, nuts, whole grains, sweet potatoes, kale, green beans, dark chocolate.
Foods with good levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids: walnuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, fish.
