If you suffer from insomnia, we have a good news for you. In this article we will present you the best ancient remedy for sleep which is made of milk and honey.
The effect of honey and milk is strengthened when they are combined. Honey causes a controlled increase in the amount of insulin and also promotes tryptophan to be released into the brain. The induction for feeling of relaxation is caused when tryptophan is converted into serotonin. Then, serotonin is being converted to melatonin which aids sleep.
Here is how to prepare the recipe:
- 1 tsp of honey.
- 6 oz. of milk;
- 1 drop of vanilla extract;
- Heat the milk in a small sauce pan until it warms up a bit, but not boil.
- Remove it from the heat and pour it into a glass.
- Add vanilla and honey.
- Stir well and sip slowly before going to bed.
Caution: If you are lactose intolerant, you should replace the milk with lactose free substitute such as soy, rice, or almond milk.
