The Secret To Falling Asleep Is… A Banana?

A woman's TikTok video claiming bananas are the secret to falling asleep has gone viral for all those people desperately searching for some ZZZZs.

In the video, Allison claims eating a banana before bed can help send you off to the land of Nod.

"This trick was life-changing," she said in the video.

Bananas are packed full of magnesium and potassium, which help your muscles and mind relax.

Allison has been feeding a banana to her toddler daughter to help her sleep through the night.

"I have had the absolute worst sleeper since the day she was born. We started the banana trick, we're about eight months in, and she sleeps through the night," she said in the video.

Make sure to check with your doctor if this is safe for your child before trying!
