You are also an insomniac? Or have been living in denial. Either way, if in the normal sleep hours of the night, you feel the need to read or play a game on the computer or simply fiddle with your phone while pretending to watch television, you are surely having trouble nodding off once you hit the sack. It can be quite a nagging problem leading to serious health problems later, particularly after having worked the whole day without sleeping a wink. Your body and mind feels knackered, but sleep eludes you. Nothing more frustrating than not being able to sleep at night, while the rest of the world is.
Did you know that millions of people suffer from insomnia across the world, and they really struggle to get a goodnight’s sleep. But a lot of us opt to beat this sleeplessness with prescription medication, which can be potentially addictive, and cause lasting health issues that include constipation, heartburn, dizziness, and nausea among others. How about using some very common kitchen ingredients instead to whip up a drink that promises sound sleep in a second?
Bid goodbye to pharmaceuticals, embrace this natural, healthy way of falling into deep slumber at night, like the rest of the world, with these three incredibly common ingredients.
1 glass milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp honey
Method of Preparation:
First heat the milk in a saucepan. Take it off heat before it starts boiling. Now pour it into a glass and add the vanilla essence and honey. Stir the mix well. Drink it slowly just before going to bed. And you will be surprised how sound you are going to sleep.
What these ingredients do to your body
Let’s see how each of these ingredients work their magical sleep-inducing property on you
The amino acid in milk, among other protein-rich food, known as tryptophan induces sleep by producing serotonin and melatonin.
Various studies in the past have concluded that the perfume of vanilla is a great means to calm the mind. In a test involving 85 participants on whom MRI scans were performed, a substantial amount of cacophony in the brain associated with relaxation and lowered stress was noted. Even if your insomnia is borne out by some respiratory disorder such as sleep apnea, vanilla can still come to your rescue.
Honey brings about a sedative-like effect by triggering a chemical reaction that leads to the production of sleep-inducing melatonin being released into the brain.
