Kiwi - Researchers in Taiwan found that people who ate two kiwifruit one hour before bedtime fell asleep faster and stayed asleep longer. (sleep enhancers: antioxidants, serotonin.)
Fish - Tuna, salmon and halibut have high doses of omega-3 fatty acids and B-complex vitamins which help produce tryptophan and melatonin in the brain. Try to have at least two 4-ounce servings per week. (sleep enhancers: omega-3s, B vitamins.)
