3 foods that can help you sleep

Do you find it hard to get to sleep at night? Eating foods that contain Tryptophan may help.

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid (meaning the body can't produce it so must be obtained in the diet), and is a precursor to serotonin which is thought to have a good influence on sleep, as well as your mood.


Some examples of foods that are high in tryptophan include pistachios, turkey and eggs. Combine these with sources of carbohydrate at your evening meal and you could have the recipe for a better night's sleep.


A good night's sleep is also helped by a regular routine, so try to limit screen time before you go to bed, switching off laptops and mobile phones at least an hour before bed and aim to go to bed at the same time each night, including the weekend.
