Dinner for a good night's sleep

You should eat it no later than three hours before bedtime. Take care also to make it easy to digest. Eat, eg. some vegetables.

Warning! Stimulating work hot spices. For dinner, so avoid spicy dishes.

Choose products that affect the increase in the production of melatonin and serotonin. Their level increases tryptophan, an amino acid that we must deliver with the diet.

Its products are a rich source of protein, eg. poultry (without skin), lean fish, skim milk or cheese. A rich source of tryptophan are bananas.

Warning! It is worth to dinner to eat turkey because it is a rich source of vitamin B12, which has a calming effect on the nervous system. 

Watch out for the blue light

An increasingly common cause of problems with sleep is blue light emitted from computer monitors and television screens, tablets and cells.

Blue light due to the frequency of the wave stimulates the brain to work and inhibits the secretion of melatonin - the hormone of sleep. Through it harder to fall asleep.

Warning! Can help the special glasses that absorb blue light. But the best use of these devices for at least two hours before bedtime.
