Salt is very useful in small quantities since it reduces headache, boosts immunity, raises energy and balances the level of serotonin and electrolytes in the body and it maintains homeostatic conditions which stabilizes the adrenaline. While sugar shuts down the production of stress hormones which harms the metabolism and makes you awake at night. Salt, especially mixed with sugar has a special role in human health. They help with insomnia acting like a battery for the cells since the glucose provides fuel supply to the mitochondria as well as proper cell respiration and energy production with the balance of sodium in the interstitial liquid. This super combination will help you balance the functioning of the stress hormone.
Preparation: The ratio of salt and sugar should be 1:5. It would be better to use unrefined sea or Himalayan salt and high-quality raw brown sugar or muscovado type rapadura. Ordinary salt and sugar will serve as well. Mix 5 tbs of sugar and 1 tbs of salt in a glass jar. Before you go to sleep, or if you wake up in the middle of the night shake the bottle and take 1 spoon in small amount, putting it under your tongue and wait for it to be dissolved. Say goodbye to insomnia!
