Although we are used to eating bananas in the morning, for a snack or in situations where we notice that we need sugar, it is useful to eat them in the evening as well

Bananas can help with insomnia, according to alternative health practitioner Alan Mandell.

He advises that in case of insomnia, eat a banana half an hour before going to sleep, so that you wake up refreshed.

This fruit is full of vitamin B6, which works by converting the amino acid tryptophan, important for good sleep and mood, with serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls the secretion of melatonin in the pineal gland in the brain.

Melatonin, known as the sleep hormone, controls our internal clock and due to its increased secretion, we feel sleepy in the evening.
