One Cup of This Magic Sleep Remedy and You’ll be Asleep in Less Than a Minute
This is the ultimate ancient remedy for sleeping better at night and is ideal for people suffering from insomnia. Give this mixture of milk and honey a try; it takes just one cup to fall asleep in no time at all.
Honey and milk alike have been used as traditional remedies for sleeplessness and insomnia for centuries.
They can be effective by themselves, but they have a better effect when they are combined.
The power behind honey is that it is one of those rare sugary foods that cause a controlled increase in insulin secretion, which also triggers the release of tryptophan in the brain.
Tryptophan will generally be converted into serotonin, which creates a relaxed feeling. Serotonin is also converted into melatonin, which is widely-regarded as a sleep aid. As confusing as all this sounds, it basically means that combining milk and honey reduces sleeplessness.
This is the recipe for this great sleeping potion:
• 6oz milk
• 1 teaspoon of honey
• 1 drop of vanilla extract
1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan. It should be warm but not boiling.
2. Remove the milk from the heat and pour it into a glass
3. Add the honey and vanilla
4. Stir well and sip before bed
If you have a lactose intolerance then follow the recipe how it is written, but replace the milk with a lactose-free substitute such as rice, soy, or almond milk. It will still have the same effect.
