Bananas are a great pre-bedtime snack or smoothie ingredient. With their natural levels of melatonin and serotonin, they will help calm your nervous system.

Along with magnesium content from the bananas, almond milk and oats can help relax your muscles and prevent restlessness in order to fall into a deep sleep.

Raw honey has long been used for years as a natural sleep aid as it is said to assist in the release of melatonin.

Enjoy this 1-2 hours before bed to feel the benefits.
