5 best foods to help you sleep and 2 you should avoid
If you're tossing and turning most nights instead of sleeping soundly, there are some foods that can help you snooze better. We asked Sue Love and Sapna Patel Flower, naturopathic doctors at Restore Integrative Health in Toronto, for their suggestions of foods that help you fall asleep quickly and for longer periods of time.
If you're having trouble falling asleep, eat a handful of walnuts. They contain melatonin, a hormone produced by the brain and gastrointestinal tract that "is involved in regulating sleep-wake cycles," says Love.
