Five food stuff that helps you to sleep better

A good night’s sleep is all that you need to feel fresh and energetic for the next day. But, its significance goes way beyond improving productivity and boosting your mood. Having sufficient amount of sleep is a necessity; it has a surprisingly positive impact on mind, heart, weight and more.

While most of us doze off as soon as we lay our heads on the pillow. Some might find it difficult to get off to sleep. Not getting enough sleep can weaken your immune system thereby leading to a number of health disorders (1). It may even cause severe illnesses requiring hospitalization, and leaving you with worries for filing health insurance claims. Studies have found the direct link between the food we eat and our sleeping patterns. Including certain foods in your diet will help you sleep better.

Here is the list of superfoods to include in your diet for a good night sleep:

Tart cherries:

Melatonin is a chemical that helps in regulating body’s internal clock. It is found in cherries especially tart cherries. Eat handful of cherries a few hours before going to sleep. Drink a small cup of cherry juice daily to improve conditions like insomnia.
