Looking for an insomnia treatment? Have you tried honey and milk?
A Natural Cure for Insomnia
If you suffer from insomnia, you might want to consider trying a home remedy for insomnia using milk and honey. It’s a natural remedy for sleep insomnia that many have found to be effective.
It’s simple and easy to try. Simply add a teaspoon or two of honey into a warm cup of milk and drink it just before going to bed. If you don’t like milk, the honey may still help you sleep when mixed into a cup of caffeine-free tea, or even just warm water.
How it Works
Consuming honey releases the amino acid tryptophan into the bloodstream. When it reaches the brain, the tryptophan is converted into a hormone called serotonin, which in darkness is finally converted into melatonin.
Melatonin is the hormone that induces sleep.
It’s Worth a Try!
Is using honey as a home remedy for insomnia an absolute, sure-fire cure? No, of course it isn’t. But for many, it has proven to be one of the more effective of natural insomnia cures.
So if you’re having problems with insomnia, and don’t want to rely on sleeping pills, why not give it a try? Let the bees help you get your ZZZ’s!
Even if it doesn’t help you sleep, then at the very worst you’ll have enjoyed a tasty treat before bedtime.
