This refreshing drink has a calming effect and will improve the quality of your sleep.
How these ingredients work?
A study has shown that vanilla scent is one of the best for relaxing before bedtime. The study involved 85 participants and it was concluded that vanilla scent helped relax their mind and brain activity and also reduced anxiety. Researchers in France discovered that vanilla also helps with sleep apnea.
Milk is a very good source of protein and tryptophan which is an amino acid. This amino acid naturally boosts melatonin and serotonin production. Incresed levels of melatonin and serotonin promote calmness and clarity of mind. Therefore, milk acts as a natural sedative.
Honey contains glycogen, which has an important role when it comes to maintaining the liver function. Honey stimulates a chemical reaction that increases the release of melatonin in the brain.
