CORAL SPRINGS, FL, June 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Health Briefs has reported that Americans are not getting the sleep they need, according to the CDC. Often a big part of the problem is getting to sleep to begin with. There are some common examples of food that can help induce sleep. The potassium in bananas helps to promote melatonin, a key sleep-regulating hormone. Tart cherries actually contain melatonin, and even drinking their juice will help. Hummus contains tryptophan, the ingredient in turkey dinners that has revelers dozing off during the holidays. Lettuce contains a natural sedative that can help get the sleep cycle started. Bread products like pretzels contain carbs and magnesium that can result in a drowsy sensation. Fish such as tuna, salmon and halibut offer both melatonin-promoting vitamin B6 and tryptophan. So it is possible for one to eat one's way to sleep.
