This is the most effective ancient sleep remedy. All you have to do is drink just one cup of this remedy before you go to sleep and you will fall asleep in less than 10 minutes.
People used honey and milk for centuries, to make remedies for insomnia. 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.

Pour the milk in a small saucepan and put it on heat. Wait until it’s warm, but not boiling. Then, remove it from heat and pour it into glass. Then, you need to add the vanilla and the honey. Stir well and drink it slowly before you got o sleep.
