Certain fruits that contain melatonin may also help you fall asleep faster and wake up less often during the night.
“For instance, tart cherry juice and whole tart cherries contain a lot of melatonin, and bananas, pineapple, and oranges are also sources,” according to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF).
If you have insomnia, eating two kiwis before bed has also been shown to increase your sleep duration by an hour over the course of a month.
“Other fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants (like berries, prunes, raisins, and plums) may have a similar effect by helping to counteract the oxidative stress caused by a sleep disorder,” notes the NSF.
