Some lucky people go to sleepas soon as they lay on bed. But most of the other people suffer from sleeplessness (insomnia) because of tensions, stress and psychological problems. The sleeplessness makes us dull and inactive. Many people use sleeping pills for sleep which cause many health problems and side effects. Here are some natural foods that act as alternative to sleeping pills.

  1. Milk:

    Milk has an essential amino acid called Tryptophan which relaxes our brain and helps alleviate insomnia by inducing normal sleep; reduces anxiety and depression, and welcomes sleep. The calcium in milk relaxes our muscles. So it is better to drink a cup of lukewarm milk before sleeping.

  2. Honey:

    The glucose in honey switches off the neurotransmitter Arexin (Arexin induces insomnia by keeping the brain active) of our brain. Take a teaspoon of honey in a cup of lukewarm milk or herbal tea before sleeping.

  3. Potato:

    Potato prevents the action of acids in our stomach that disturb our sleep. Take a boiled and mashed potato with milk before sleeping to have a peaceful sleep.

  4. Banana:

    Banana is rich in hormones like Serotonin and Melatonin which induce sleep. The Magnesium in banana relaxes muscles and enhances sleep.

  5. Almond:

    The natural relaxant Tryptophan and the muscle relaxant Magnesium in almond enhance sleep. So take almond for undisturbed sleep.

  6. Oatmeal:

    Oat meal is rich in Melatonin which helps us fight insomnia. Take a cup of oatmeal before sleeping for a happy sleep.

  7. Wheat bread:

    The wheat bran bread helps in releasing sufficient insulin to supply Tryptophan to brain. Consequently brain releases signals for sleeping. Take wheat bran bread with tea or honey before sleeping for relaxed sleep.

So use the above foods before sleeping and relax. If you find these are not promoting sleep then find out the reasons which disturb your sleep. If necessary consult a physician.
