Written by: Liz Brown - Apr. 19, 2018
For centuries, people have used a warm milk and honey recipe as a remedy to achieve better quality sleep. Drinking this magic elixir has been rumored to ease anxiety, tension, and insomnia.
This is how you can sleep better with this ZzzTox milk and honey recipe…
Sleep Benefits of Milk and Honey
Recent studies confirm the rumors surrounding the benefits of a milk and honey recipe and credit a few ingredients in particular.
The mixture contains tryptophan and other essential amino acids that increase your production of melatonin, a hormone that is commonly associated with regulating sleep .
FUN FACT: Tryptophan is an amino acid that is also found in turkey, which is also responsible for why most Americans feel tired after eating Thanksgiving dinner!
In addition, milk contains casein protein. Casein protein is a slow digestive protein that is necessary for cell healing and recovery.
This particular type of protein takes up to seven hours to digest, so while you’re sleeping, your body is working overtime and burning calories in the process, allowing you to sleep like a baby.
Studies found that during sleep, casein protein spikes amino acid levels throughout the night and subsequently increases muscle protein synthesis .
So not only are you getting better quality sleep, but you are building lean muscle in the process.
