Sleep is one of the most important pillars to health, alongside nutrition, exercise and stress management. We tend to think that it doesn’t play such an important role, however, sleep can be even more important than any of the mentioned above. Sleep is a healing, restoring and detoxing mechanism that helps your brain function properly, regulates hormones that control hunger (if you’re not sleeping enough, you’ll produce more ghrelin, the hormone that makes you hungry) as well as balances mood, energy and productivity.

So, if you’re not prioritising sleep, start making it a part of your healthy lifestyle routine. You’ll increase your mental capacity, productivity levels, and energy, boost your mood and maintain a healthy weight.

Want to know what foods are going to guarantee a restful and good nights sleep?

Food has the power of improving sleep, especially those that contain tryptophan, a necessary amino acid that produces serotonin and melatonin, the sleep regulating hormones.
