Spinach might not be a natural pairing with berries, but the dark, leafy veg is rich in magnesium (a component of chlorophyll). This promotes muscle relaxation and can calm the adrenal gland action, increasing the chances of an uninterrupted night's shut-eye.
Bananas are key in this recipe too. They are a good source of tryptophan, which converts to the calming hormones serotonin and melatonin in the body.
