Below is a collection of 8 foods that can cause drowsiness, especially when eaten together

Oily fish

The acids contained in salmon, tuna and other oily fish increases the production of melatonin. The acids reduce the level of stress hormones in the blood and the only thing you want to do after eating is to curl up and sleep.

White rice

White rice has high glycemic index which can cause drowsiness 3 to 4 hours after you’ve finished your meal. Researchers have found jasmine rice, in particular, brings on sleep faster than other rice types.

Pumpkin seeds

In addition to tryptophan, pumpkin seeds contain hefty amounts of zinc and magnesium. The compounds make you calm and relaxed, and you can hardly resist the temptation to doze off a few minutes.

Chamomile tea

Chamomile is packed with glycine, which is an amino acid that has a mild sedative effect which relaxes muscles and the nervous system. After a cup of chamomile tea you can barely keep your eyes open and focus on important issues.

Almonds

They are rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that produces melatonin which is often known as the “sleep hormone”. To add on that, the nuts are [packed with magnesium which eases muscle tension and makes you feel drowsy.

Bananas

The sugar, potassium and magnesium found in the bananas make tryptophan enter your brain easily and cause sleepiness.

Walnuts

They contain less tryptophan than almonds, yet they have their own source of melatonin. Research claim that walnuts increases the level of this hormone in the blood and makes one quite sleepy.

Cherries

Particularly tart cherries have a relatively high melatonin content, but eating a handful of fresh cherries won’t make a difference. Drinking a glass of cherry juice will out you to sleep in no time.

Dairy products

Hard cheeses is among the dairy products that has the most relaxing effects as they contain large amount of calcium. If you add crackers to the cheese, it will produce a stronger sleep-inducing effect as carbohydrates intensify the function of tryptophan.
