Do you find it difficult to catch some good night’s sleep? Well, you’re not alone!
As we age, getting a good night’s sleep can feel like an impossible dream. But before you reach for sleeping pills, why not try changing your diet? Believe it or not, the foods you eat have a significant impact on your ability to get restful sleep. In fact, some foods can promote relaxation and even aid in the production of sleep hormones like melatonin. So, today let’s learn about some tasty treats that will have you sleeping like a baby in no time.
10. Warm milk
Warm milk has been a go-to sleep aid for generations, and there’s actually some science to back it up. According to a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, warm milk contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your brain produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood and helps you relax. And when your brain produces serotonin, it also produces melatonin, the hormone that regulates your sleep cycle.
So, drinking warm milk before bed could help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. Also, there’s something comforting about sipping on a warm glass of milk before bed. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of being tucked in by your mom when you were a kid, or maybe, it’s just the feeling of warmth spreading through your body that makes you feel cozy and relaxed.
