Boost Your 6th Chakra With Delicious Eggplant Dip

This means that foods with the natural, sleep-inducing agent, melatonin are good for the 6th chakra. There are three key melatonin-producing foods that we recommend: Oats, sweet corn and rice. Each one contains between 1,000 and 1,800 picograms (1,000,000 picograms = 1 milligram) of melatonin per gram.
