Sleep tip: Eat more walnuts
The walnut oil is traditionally used for diarrhea, to treat hemorrhoids and to calm the intestines. Walnuts are also a natural source of melatonin, a substance in the body that helps regulate your internal clock.
1 g of walnuts contains between 2.5 and 4.5 ng melatonin. The average adult dose of melatonin to help with insomnia is between 1 and 5 g per day. In addition, walnuts contain omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are needed for the proper functioning of the nervous system and the brain.
