5 Foods To Help You Sleep Better

(Huffington Post) Restful shuteye at night can sometimes become elusive as we get older. Not only does it become more challenging to fall asleep, it’s also harder to stay asleep like we were able to in our younger years. Your sleep rhythms can change ― perhaps that’s why you’ve noticed you’re adhering to the “early to bed, early to rise” adage. Other sleep and health conditions, including insomnia, also make it difficult to get well-rested and get enough deep sleep. It’s commonly thought that older folks don’t need much sleep, but according to the National Sleep Foundation, your sleep needs don’t change drastically as you go from adult to older adult. 
Here are a few things you can add to your diet that might help you sleep a little better.
1. Tart cherry juice…
2. Protein-rich foods…
3. Nuts…
4. Fatty fish…
5. Passionflower tea.
Community: It may come as a surprise, but the least expensive tart cherry juice that I’ve found is Whole Foods store brand juice. Also, Whole Foods is the most consistent source I’ve found of high quality nuts at a reasonable price.
