Sleep is very important, and for optimal function of the body, you need good sleep.

Stress and other 21st century problems make it hard for people to find sleep these days.

These foods would help you sleep better

1. Oatmeal

Oatmeal isn’t only one of the most nutritious foods there is, it’s also good for sleep. Oatmeal contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium, which is known for its sleep qualities. However, it’s best to avoid sugar at night, as it could have an anti-calming effect.

2. Milk

Research has found that calcium deficiency is linked with poor sleep quality, and milk is rich in melatonin-boosting calcium. Milk also has these soothing effects that could make you have a good night sleep.

3. Banana

Bananas are packed with potassium and magnesium — two well-known minerals that boost muscle relaxation. They could help you have a better sleep at night.

4. Fish

Fish is rich in tryptophan, a natural sedative that helps you sleep better. Fish also contains vitamin B6 which boosts melatonin production, a sleep inducing hormone.

5. Also, foods rich in protein such as chicken and turkey contain tryptophan, an amino acid that boosts melatonin, a sleep inducing hormone.

6. Also, to have a better night sleep, avoid caffeinated drinks
