Almonds are beloved by both children and adults as a healthy way to add some crunch to your diet. They are packed filled with fiber and healthy fats and have long been touted as being a “weight loss friendly food.” However, what isn’t widely reported is that these delicious seeds (yep, they are seeds, not nuts) can also have a positive effect on helping you get some sleep.
Almonds are a good source of vitamin B2, vitamin D, protein and magnesium, which numerous studies have shown can improve not only quality of sleep, but also duration. So if you have been having some troubles when the time comes for lights out, try some almonds to get your crunch instead of potato chips. Not only will you fall asleep easier, but we are also willing to bet that you will wake up feeling even better.
