It’s no secret that what, how much and when you eat your dinner has an effect on how well you sleep. But did you know that there is one simple food that can help you in your quest for eight hours unrivaled shut-eye? Something as simple as eating eggs at dinnertime can be a natural sedative as egg whites help the body prepare for bedtime by producing melatonin – which brings on that sleepy feeling. They are also a rich source of the amino acid typtophan, which means that they help you to sleep better for longer by telling your brain to shut down for the night. Not only will eggs help to boost the quality and quantity of your slumber, but they will also help to prevent weight gain, ageing and even reduce your stress levels. So from now on eat an egg with dinner each night!
