5 Nutritious Foods To Help You Sleep

It’s generally recommended to get between 7 and 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. There are many strategies you can use to promote good sleep, including making changes to your diet, as some foods have sleep-promoting properties. Jumia Food, Nigeria’s no 1 food ordering platform discusses, the best foods you can eat before bed to boost your sleep quality.
Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are great sources of potassium, magnesium, and calcium to help you relax. You can eat a baked sweet potato for whatever you eat right before going to bed.
Fibre-rich foods

Eating more fibre can also help you sleep better. Fibre prevents blood sugar surges that may lower melatonin (a hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness). Some rich fibre foods include beans, nuts and vegetables.

Bananas

Bananas are rich in potassium and are also a good source of Vitamin B6, which is needed to make melatonin. This can help your muscles relax and help you catch some sleep, especially at night.
Nuts

If you do not really like bananas at night, then eating nuts is a perfect alternative for you. For example, almonds, cashews and peanuts are a good before-bed snack, thanks to their magnesium content. This said, ensure that you don’t eat too much.
Dairy

If you’re an insomniac, you’re also probably familiar with the idea that drinking a warm glass of milk will solve the problem. Turns out, any milk product will do the trick.
