5. Cherries

Cherries are not only one of the most

delicious fruits for snacking on (or

drinking, cherry juice is delish), but

are also known to improve sleep as

they naturally contain melatonin,

which helps to promote a longer and

deeper sleep.

6. Turkey

Turkey is a good source of protein

and is also great at encouraging

sleepiness. This is because turkey

is high in tryptophan, an essential

amino acid acting as a natural mood

regulator. Tryptophan is excellent

at calming the body, balancing

hormones and fighting anxiety, all of

which induce sleep.

7. Yeast extract

Yeast extract can be found in foods

like Marmite and Vegemite or from

leftover brewer's yeast and is one

of the world's richest sources of B

vitamins. A study has shown that

yeast extract has the potential

to boost brain function as it can

increase levels of a neurotransmitter

associated with healthy brain

function. The University of York also

found that adults who ate a teaspoon

of Marmite every day had an

increased production of a chemical

messenger associated with healthy

brain function.

8. Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits and drinks have

significant benefits, with one study

finding that a higher intake of citrus

juice was linked to improvements

in cognitive functions in older

adults. Another study found that

the flavanone-rich citrus juice in

quantities commonly consumed can

enhance blood flow to the brain in

healthy young adults. However, fruit

juices can raise blood glucose, so

maybe in small portions or stick to

eating the fruit, which will have a less

spikey impact on your glucose levels.

10. Porridge

The oats that make porridge contain

a unique type of fibre that nourishes

and restores healthy gut bacteria as

well as reducing your low-density

lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the

'bad' cholesterol. Oats are a super

easy food to add to your morning

routine by having a bowl of porridge,

which is excellent for your health and

keeps you feeling fuller for longer!

9. Oily Fish

Oily fish is full of Omega-3 fatty

acids, which show that they may

reduce depression. This is down to

two such acids, eicosapentaenoic

acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid

(DHA), which are thought to have the

biggest potential benefit for people

with mood disorders. Oily fish is

also fabulous for our cardiovascular

system so we get two benefits for the

price of one!
