Bananas contain vitamin B6, which helps to regulate mood, calm your mind and relieve stress.

Dates are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your body to produce the soothing hormone serotonin.

Walnuts are a source of calcium, which relaxes your mind and prepares it for sleep.

Almond milk is rich in fatty acids that regulate melatonin, a hormone that improves sleep quality.

Buckwheat groats are packed with vitamin C, which improves your body’s ability to absorb and use B vitamins.

Casein provides a slow-release overnight protein hit that keeps your muscles repairing and growing while you sleep.
