Nature's sleeping pill

Are good nights of sleep eluding you? Are you a before bed snacker? Well there's good news. Make your snack a handful of walnuts and you may get to dreamland a little easier.

The body's pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin that induces sleep and helps regulate sleep. This hormone is found in walnuts--making walnuts a great evening or bedtime snack for improving your sleep.(

Another great sleep enhancing bedtime snack is a banana. It's a great natural source of melatonin, the sleep hormone, as well as tryptophan.


Yours in health,
Dr. Velonda
