Turkey, almonds, and whole grains are foods that can help consumers’ sleep, reports The Times Media Company.

“Complex carbohydrates like brown rice, cereal and grains contain Tryptophan, an amino acid needed to produce serotonin which helps makes melatonin which helps us sleep,” says Chigurupati. “Simple carbohydrates—white bread, sugar—spike your blood sugar—making it difficult to sleep. Lean proteins are also high in Tryptophan while fat proteins take longer to digest and bring the serotonin levels down.”
