Sleep Aids in the Form of Food

Sleep AidsWe all hear a lot about foods to avoid if we want to sleep well throughout the night, but seldom hear about foods that can be used as sleep aids. Most of us know to avoid caffeinated drinks, chocolate, and other stimulants when bedtime is approaching.

Spicy foods are also off limits for those in need of sleep aids. Some foods actually contain chemicals that promote sleep and can actually help you fall asleep! Next time you’re looking for a midnight snack try munching on some turkey, wash it down with a glass of warm milk, and see what happens.
