There are several causes of obesity. A lot of stress or sitting for a long time can cause obesity.

Another major factor is lack of sleep. Lack of sleep can make weight management difficult.

A body mass index ( BMI ) of 25 or more is considered overweight, and a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more is considered obese. However, a research team found that those with a BMI of 30 or higher tended to sleep 15 minutes less on average than those with a BMI lower than that.

Lack of sleep raises levels of the fasting hormone ghrelin and decreases levels of the satiety hormone leptin, making you hungry. In addition, lack of sleep makes you feel tired or stressed, which also makes it difficult to suppress your appetite.

One of the best ways to get a good night's sleep is to eat foods that help you sleep better. In this regard, let's find out about foods that help you sleep.

#1 Milk

Milk is a good food to get rid of insomnia. Rich in calcium, milk calms the mind. It is also rich in tryptophan, the main component of serotonin, a component that induces sleep.

#2 Cherry

Cherries contain melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle. Studies have shown that people who drink two glasses of cherry juice each day get about 40 minutes longer quality sleep than those who don't.

#3 Jujube

Jujube is helpful for insomnia patients accompanied by anxiety. Jujube is known to promote heart function and smooth blood circulation. Jujube can be eaten as is, but it is good to take in as tea.

#4 Celery and Lettuce

Celery helps sleep by lowering body heat in stressful office workers and students. It also has a headache relief effect. Lettuce is also good for insomnia accompanied by a headache.

#5 Bananas

The magnesium and potassium in bananas relax the muscles, therefore helping you relax and sleep.

#6 Onions

Onions contain a lot of allicin, an organic sulfur component that gives off a spicy flavor. Allicin stimulates the brain, improves blood circulation, and calms the mind.

#7 Almonds and Walnuts

Almonds are rich in protein, which helps you sleep. It also contains magnesium, which helps to properly relax the muscles, so eating a small amount of almonds before bed can help.

Walnuts strengthen kidney function, make the respiratory system and intestines smooth, boosts energy, and provide nutrients to the brain. These pure functions come together to ultimately prevent insomnia and help you get a good night's sleep.

#8 Herbal teas

Herbal teas that have a soothing effect, such as chamomile tea and Red Ginseng Tea Gold, act to shorten the time to fall asleep. It is also effective in reducing fatigue the next day as it helps you get a deeper sleep.
