What foods can help relieve my insomnia?

Besides sleeping aids, natural remedies can also help relieve your insomnia. Certain foods can make you have a better sleep. For example, warm milk is good for you. Before you go to bed, you can have some warm milk. Milk, especially almond milk is a great source of calcium, and calcium can help your body make melatonin. As a type of hormone, melatonin can help regulate your sleep cycle. Foods rich in magnesium are also beneficial. If your body lacks magnesium, it will be harder for you to feel sleepy at night.
