Health Tips for March 24

Five Foods to Help You Snooze

Warm Milk
A glass of milk can help you sleep better because it contains tryptophan, a sleep-inducing substance. Almost all dairy products are rich in tryptophan.

Whole Wheat Products
Whole wheat products contain magnesium, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12. All these nutrients are sleep-friendly.

A German study shows that vegetables like lettuce, spinach, broccoli and kale contain vitamins that fight stress and induce peaceful sleep.

Carbohydrates can make you fall asleep sooner by speeding up the release of tryptophan.

Bananas are rich in potassium and magnesium which help to relax muscles and give a peaceful night's sleep.
