Sleep is an essential part of life.

Stress, medical condition, too much caffeine and etc...

It is painful when you can't sleep at night. 

Next morning, You might get headache, you feel exhausted and can't focus on your 

study or work. 

I am going to list some food that will help you sleep better.

1. Banana

Bananas contain tryptophan, an amino acid that's valuable in your effort to get to 

sleep. Tryptophan converts to serotonin, a sleep promoting neurotransmitter, and is 

the cause of the post thanksgiving "turkey fog" you might experience. The fruit is also 

a source of melatonin, which is often known as the "sleep hormone." The dose of 

melatonin causes you to feel drowsy, and as a result, help you fall asleep.

Some scientists say to avoid garlic because garlic contains compounds that causes 

heart burn and acid reflux. but some people say garlic actually helps to induce sleep.

This has relaxing and sleep inducing properties similar to opium but without the 

strong side effects. Simply eat a few leaves or drink some lettuce juice.

who consumed two kiwi fruit one hour before bedtime fell asleep 45 minutes faster, 

and had better sleep duration and quality than those who went without the fruit.

5. Milk

A cup of warm milk or a milk based drink is traditionally used for sleep induction.

which helps in the production of the sleep inducing brain chemicals, serotonin and 


6. Lotus root

Lotus root is considered to have many curative powers. According to modern day 

science, the plant is rich in iron that fortifies the blood and has plenty of vitamin C, 

anti oxidants, polysaccharides, and polyphenois that are believed to be effective 

fighting cancer.

lotus root juice has been known to help, because it eases the nerves. 

7. Walnut

Walnuts are a good source of tryptophan, a sleep enhancing amino acid that helps 

make serotonin and melatonin, the body clock hormone that sets your sleep wake 

cycles. Additionally, University of Texas researchers found that walnuts contain their 

own source of melatonin, which may help you fall asleep faster. 

8. Onion
