These sleep-inducing foods will help you get a better night’s sleep, which has been proven to have slimming, youth-boosting benefits. 

Salmon

Contains fatty acid, DHA, to help boost melatonin production and support your sleep cycle. Aim to eat two portions of salmon a week.

Beans

Packed with vitamin B, beans and other vegetables produce serotonin, a brain chemical that helps you sleep.

Milk

Ever wondered why a glass of milk before bed helps you to nod off? It’s loaded with sleep-regulating melatonin to give you a better night. Drink up to half a pint of low-fat milk per day.

Nuts

Research has shown that those suffering from sleep disorders should eat walnuts before bed, as they help to boost melatonin levels in the blood significantly. Snack on a handful of nuts (and no more than) a day.
