  • Quote from ChristinAitchison on
  • “Tryptophan, which is an amino acid component found in many plant and animal products, is one of the ingredients necessary for the body to make serotonin, which naturally creates feelings of calm and sleepiness. Tryptophan is transported to the brain by carbohydrates. The amino acid is then converted to serotonin by vitamin B6. Sodium rich foods like chicken and fish help to maintain the activity of serotonin in the body. Therefore, the combination of these food groups and nutrients at dinner can induce a better, deeper sleep.”
  • Eating helps sleep?
  • Conversely, going to sleep on an empty stomach can cause blood glucose levels to fall, which triggers the pancreas to secrete the hormone glucagon. According to Peel’s article, this can stimulate the appetite center of the brain and can cause a person to awaken.
