Are you suffering from the menace called insomnia? If that’s the case, here is a milk and honey drink you should try. This is considered as the best ancient remedy for falling asleep that some of you may know it as Granny’s good night drink. All you need is to drink just 1 cup before going to bed and it will make you sleepy similar to a baby.
Both milk and honey have been used traditionally as remedies for insomnia. In fact, they are both great as individual remedies, but their benefits increase when they are used together.
Honey is a very rare sugary food that can help to control the increasing of the levels of insulin secretion, and it also helps in promoting the release of tryptophan into your brain.
Tryptophan will usually convert into serotonin that stimulates the feeling of relaxation. Serotonin usually converts into melatonin, which is a widely known sleeping aid. It is because of this perplexing chemical pathway that milk and honey are helpful in minimizing insomnia.
