Food to Eat Before Bed

1. Bananas

Bananas are a great bedtime snack because they contain high levels of magnesium and potassium, which work well together to relax muscles. They also contain a lot of vitamin B6, which helps in the production of serotonin, the peaceful-feeling hormone, and melatonin, the hormone that induces sleep.

Bananas also have a healthy dose of the amino acid tryptophan to further support the production of serotonin and melatonin. All that and just the right amount of sweetness to soothe a sugar craving make bananas an excellent bedtime choice.
