Generally I go to bed and go to sleep quickly. However after a few hours I wake and then can't get back to sleep. I've read that bananas are good for aiding sleep - is this the case and if so how far before going to sleep should you eat one?
Thank you, Hayley

Bananas are an excellent source of magnesium and potassium which help relax overstressed muscles and can be ideal go-to snack before bed. They also contain all-important tryptophan to stimulate production of those key brain calming hormones.
While bananas are a good sleepy food - there are also many others - they may not solve your problem! You might want to look at completing a sleep diary and trying to identify what is happening through the day and in the evening.
