Good and Bad Foods for Eating Before Bedtime

Did you know that eating before bed can dramatically affect how you sleep? Depending on what you eat before you hit your pillow, you will enjoy your sleep after today's hard work, or you will jump up and down or worse, visit the bathroom regularly throughout the night.

Sleep affects both our mind and our body state. During sleep our body restores the muscles in our body. Try to go without sleep and you will find your mind playing your tricks, having hallucinations, being stressed and in a state of general confusion.

Although different studies have been conducted that do not provide a clear conclusion on what foods help our sleep and what is harmful to our sleep, there is still good guidance on which foods we should eat before bed. Here's a list of what to eat and what to avoid:

Good night

Banana - The high levels of potassium and magnesium found in bananas make them one of the best foods to promote sleep. Potassium is good for cardiovascular health and cognitive function, and magnesium helps to relax muscles.

Cereals - Your favorite bean usually contains high carbohydrates that promote sleep. Adding milk to your grain as we do, also promotes a good night's sleep.

Milk - Remember the days when your mother gave you a glass of warm milk before bed. Well, it's not just to help us grow; it is to make us sleep. Milk contains tryptophan which is an amino acid that gives you a sense of calm, relaxation and drowsiness. Now I know why my mom gave me two glasses of milk instead of one, when my dad came home from work early !!

Sweetpotato - A great mix of sleep promotes complex carbohydrates and potassium muscle relaxers.

Turkey - Eating turkeys is also thought to help with better sleep because, like milk, it contains tryptophan amino acids that have a relaxing effect on the body.

Bad for sleeping

Caffeine - We all know to stay away from coffee at night, but did you know that decaf also contains some caffeine. Some medications such as painkillers and weight loss pills also contain hidden effects of caffeine, such as most tea and soda.

Hot Spices and Fat Foods - Spicy foods usually cause heartburn but can also make you feel uncomfortable during sleep like fats that are hard to digest. Hot meals can also cause dehydration so you don't want to find water during your sleep.

Chicken - High levels of protein are found in chickens that are difficult to digest. From your body to resting and moving into sleep mode, it will focus on digesting all those proteins.

Dark chocolate - Although there are many health benefits of dark chocolate, it still has calories and contains caffeine as well. It also contains a white alkaloid powder called theobromine which has the same effect as caffeine.

Wine - Alcohol in general can make you sleep faster, but it does happen after you sleep. Both white and red wines can be relaxing and relaxing but they can also act as a stimulant so avoid drinking at least 3 hours before bedtime.

Having a good night's sleep is very important for both your body and your mind. Get rid of bad habits from the window and practice habits that will make your life more comfortable and relaxing.
