When you combine milk and honey, you will get a powerful remedy for insomnia. This remedy has been known for centuries already.
Even if you consume them separately, they are both extremely effective ingredients. But their effects are multiplied by couple of times if they are combined and consumed together. We can also mention that honey is one of the sugary ingredients that cause a controlled increase in the amount of insulin being secreted, which also promotes tryptophan to be released into the brain.
So, this compound – tryptophan is being converted into serotonin, which promotes a feeling of relaxation. And the serotonins is usually converted to melatonin – a well know sleep aid. So, if you understand this chemical pathway – then you can see why honey and milk are used to improve your sleep and to reduce insomnia.
