Can’t sleep? You’re not alone. Hundreds of thousands of people experience sleeplessness on a daily basis and this insomnia problem isn’t getting any better.
Pressures at work, school and at home, medical conditions and psychological problems, as well as other factors like environmental noise and electronic gadgets contribute to this nightly sleeplessness.
Waking up tired and sluggish isn’t an option anymore, however, and one solution is so simple and easy to find, you probably already have it at home in your own pantry.
Its a sleep remedy that has been used for hundreds of years:
Warm milk with a dose of honey
As traditional sleep aid that are centuries old, milk and honey have been used separately to help induce peaceful slumber. Milk contains the enzyme tryptophan, which enhances the first phase of sleep. As soon as it crosses the blood-brain barrier, it encourages the brain to produce serotonin, known as a “calming hormone.”
A warm glass of milk
For a lot of people, drinking a warm glass of milk before bed brings on the psychological association to sleep, harking back to their childhood days when downing a glass of milk was a prelude to being tucked into bed. This association, coupled with tryptophan, makes for an effective sleep-lulling remedy.
Honey, on the other hand, has enough sugar content to cause a gradual rise of insulin that also results in the release of tryptophan in the brain. Apart from being converted into serotonin, tryptophan can also be converted to melatonin, a hormone that prepares the body for the onset of darkness, and therefore, sleep.
When taken together, milk and honey make for a potent combination that has believers raving it puts them to sleep inside of a minute.
Milk + Honey
A recipe composed of 6 ounces of warm milk, a teaspoon of honey, and a drop of vanilla extract to taste, drank slowly, will send you straight into dreamland in no time.
Lactose intolerant individuals can substitute soy milk or almond milk to duplicate the experience.
