Are you suffering from insomnia? Then you must try this amazing mixture of milk and honey. It is considered to be the best ancient remedy for sleep. You only need to drink one cup before going to bed and you will fall asleep immediately.
Honey and milk have both been traditionally used as remedies for insomnia and sleeplessness. Individually, they are both effective, but the effects are strengthened when taken together. They are also really good for your immune system and your health.
Honey is one of the rare sugary foods that causes a controlled increase in the amount of insulin being secreted, which also promotes tryptophan to be released into the brain.
Tryptophan is normally converted into serotonin, which induces a feeling of relaxation. Furthermore, serotonin is commonly converted to melatonin, a well-researched sleep aid. Through that rather confusing chemical pathway, honey and milk can be used to reduce sleeplessness!
How to make this magic drink:
- 1 drop vanilla extract
- 1 tsp honey
- 6 oz milk
How to prepare it:
- In a small saucepan heat the milk to warm, but not boiling.
- Remove from heat and pour into glass. Add vanilla and honey.
- Stir well and sip slowly before bed.
For those who are lactose intolerant, follow the recipe exactly as above, simply replace the milk with a lactose free substitute like soy, rice or almond milk.
