Bananas: Another Sleep Fruit?

Some time back we told you about researchers touting cherry juice as an insomnia cure.  Another fruit is now getting attention as a cure for sleepless nights.  A new study from the Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota indicates that magnesium, which is plentiful in bananas, could be a natural supplement to boost sleep patterns and ensure you stay in your state of slumber through the whole night.

Bananas also contain tryptophan.  We hear about tryptophan every Thanksgiving because it’s also found in turkey.  Researchers say the combination of magnesium and tryptophan make bananas a very good insomnia-fighting food.
