This article is about 6 more bedtime snacks that can make falling asleep easier. These following foods have several different natural chemicals that can help your fall asleep.

Bedtime Snacks and Their Benefits 

Lettuce- Having a light salad before bed can benefit you. Lettuce contains lactucarium which has similar affects as opium which both have sedative properties.  

Pretzels- This salty little snack can give you a short spike of blood sugar and then slowly decrease which can help you fall asleep. Normally you want to keep a steady blood sugar though a small spike before bedtime helps tryptophan enter the brain to cause sleep. 

Crackers with seeds- These crunchy squares provides protein and healthy fats which help provide a good nights sleep. 

Jasmine Rice- This soft white rice is better at helping you fall asleep than other rice according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The high glycemic level of this beautiful grain helps bring on sleep faster.

Dairy Products- Many have heard the mommy advice that warm milk can help a child sleep. There is truth to this, though any dairy product can help. Calcium helps the mind use tryptophan to activate melatonin which is a strong sleep hormone. Calcium also aids and regulates muscle movements. Relaxed muscles can create a better night. If you are lactose intolerant you can try the products with the added enzyme to digest lactose. These lactose free products may help you get the bedtime benefits of calcium.

Bowl of Cereal- Having a small bowl of your favorite (non-sugary) cereal provides a good source of calcium and  carbohydrates. These nutrients can aid you in getting the sleep you need. 

Try these tasty bedtime snacks and see if you drift off to dreamland faster. If you do try one of these snacks and it helps you, please share your experience in the comments.
