 5 Foods That Help your Sleep   |   PakistanTribe.comOh so you belong to the folks who have troubles in sleeping at night?. You wonder you are not frustrated, you are happy still why you go through this insomnia every night.  It is known fact that many foods contain such ingredients that make your sleep cycle better and sound.

According to Dr. Wendy Bazilian the following foods can do wonders to improve sleep problems.

Herbal tea: The calming effects of chamomile or peppermint tea can help you fall asleep faster and deeper. Preparing a cup of tea before bed can also be a soothing part of an effective pre-bedtime ritual.

Legumes: Good news for those on a Paleo kick—certain legumes, such as beans, peas, and peanuts, contain a healthy dose of magnesium, a powerful relaxation mineral that can improve your sleep.

Walnuts: Walnuts are another snack for better sleep. Walnuts’ melatonin content can help you achieve a better night’s sleep, plus they’re great for cognitive and heart health. Add walnuts to your trail mix and snack on them throughout the day.

Cherries: Cherries are a great source of naturally occurring melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle. In fact, one study showed that adults who drank two daily glasses of tart cherry juice slept on average 40 minutes longer with greater sleep efficiency. The juice has also been shown to help reduce the severity of insomnia in some sufferers. Add some dry tart cherries to a trail mix to snack on during the day, or drink up to two glasses of tart cherry juice to see the benefits for you.

Bananas: Bananas offer a double-whammy when it comes to good sleep-inducing benefits. The snack-size fruit can help promote sleep due to its magnesium and potassium content: Both minerals are natural muscle relaxants. Have a banana with breakfast for a health boost during the day and better sleep at night.
