FOODS TO HELP YOU SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT



Getting enough sleep can benefit everything from your mood to your immune system, but many of us struggle to get the recommended seven (or more!) hours per night.

For help with your sleep cycle try tweaking your diet. Getting more minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron on your plate can help kickstart the production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for sleep regulation. Specific foods — like cherries and nuts — specifically contain sleep-promoting properties.


When it's getting close to bedtime, make sure you're steering clear of heavy fried foods, alcohol, caffeine (like coffee, tea, and energy drinks), and heartburn-inducers such as tomato sauce or orange juice. These can have the exact opposite effect and keep you awake for longer.
