Late Night Snacks for Better Sleep

Getting good sleep is incredibly important for our overall health. It can reduce the risk of developing certain chronic illnesses, keeps our brain healthy, and boosts our immune system.


Slice of kiwi fruit

Here are 6 of the best foods and drinks you can enjoy before bed to enhance your quality of sleep, according to HealthLine.


Kiwi: This fruit is high in antioxidants and serotonin. It also has digestive benefits for a calmer stomach throughout the night.


Almonds: These nuts are not only high in riboflavin, phosphorus, and reduce the risks of chronic disease, they also are high in magnesium which promotes good sleep. Magnesium reduces inflammation and the stress hormone cortisol for better rest.


Walnuts: These nuts provide 19 vitamins and minerals, boost heart health, and their high melatonin levels will help you doze off more quickly.


Turkey: It contains the amino acid tryptophan, which increases the production of melatonin and is high in protein which has been linked to deeper sleep.


Tart cherry juice: This juice is rich in potassium and antioxidants as well as high levels of melatonin to combat insomnia.


Chamomile tea: This health-boosting beverage has antioxidants that reduce inflammation. It is widely used for overall health benefits, but for sleep specifically, it contains apigenin which binds to certain receptors in your brain that may promote sleepiness and reduce insomnia.
