Are you struggling with the menace called insomnia? If the answer is yes, then this milk and honey remedy is the perfect solution. This is believed to be the best ancient remedy for falling asleep. All you have to do is drink just 1 cup before going to bed and it will make you sleep like a baby.
Both milk and honey have been utilized traditionally as remedies for sleeplessness and insomnia. Actually, they are both great as individual remedies, but their benefits multiply when used together.
Honey is a very rare sugary food that can aid in controlled increase in the levels of insulin secretion, and it also promotes the release of tryptophan into your brain.
Tryptophan will generally convert into serotonin that enhances the feeling of relaxation. Serotonin usually converts into melatonin, which is a widely researched sleeping aid. It is due to this perplexing chemical pathway that milk and honey are able to help minimize sleeplessness.
