1 Cup Of This Will Put You To Sleep In Under 1 Minute!

There are many people across the globe who suffer from insomnia. Many Americans choose to fight this issue with prescribed meds which can be potentially addictive and come with a long list of side effects like heartburn, constipation, dizziness, and attention issues…

Luckily, there are common household ingredients which will help you sleep well.

Follow this recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp of honey;
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract;
  • 6oz of organic, hormone free milk (if you are a vegan, replace dairy with almond milk).

How to prepare it: heat the milk in a saucepan, but do not allow it boil. Pour the warm milk into a glass and add the vanilla and honey. Mix everything together and drink it slowly before going to bed.

How does it work?

The ingredients allow the body to power down.

  • Vanilla – one study from 1991 discovered that this ingredient relaxes the mind. There were MRI scans conducted during the testing that involved 85 participants and all showed significant amounts of brain activity connected to relaxation and reduced anxiety. This is great if the insomnia is caused by racing thoughts. But, if your insomnia is caused by a respiratory illness like sleep apnea, vanilla will also be here to assist.
  • Milk – the protein-rich milk contains amino acid (tryptophan) which aids sleep and encourages the production of serotonin and melatonin that results in a sedative-like effect.
  • Honey – a double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled study discovered that honey improves the rest quality. It produces the production of the compound glycogen that is needed by the liver in carrying out the functions while we rest. The quantity of the compound in the body decreases throughout the day and it can trigger the brain as you sleep, to wake. Thus, you get out of your bed looking for move glycogen-containing foods in the middle of the night without realizing why. Honey is able to trigger chemical reactions which lead to more sleep-inducing melatonin being released in the brain.
