Are you struggling to find the best way to get to sleep? Are you tired of coming up with new ways to finally get to sleep? Do you lie there, hoping that you will eventually fall asleep? Have you tried to count sheep? Too scared to take melatonin? At this point, you are probably fed up. Thankfully, there are passed down recipes for drinks that can help with sleep.
Chamomile tea is well known in many traditional remedies to help with a range of health issues. Chamomile doesn’t stem from a tea plant; this tea doesn’t have caffeine. Chamomile tea has several healing properties but well known for its sleep aid. The tea has a sedative effect from a flavonoid, apigenin, which creates a calming response in the brain where you begin to feel sleepy.
Warm milk goes back to when we were all babies; it’s most people’s first sleep remedies. This method works with non-dairy milk as well! The protein from nut-based milk reacts the same as dairy milk. After the milk has been warmed, it raises your body temperature, which can calm and relax you, making it easier to fall asleep. The calcium in milk has a soothing effect on the nervous system. Warm milk might comfort your inner child.
Additives To Add Into Your Tea
You probably already have tea in your pantry, find your favorite tea that you already have, and add some of our suggestions. If you are using ready-made tea bags, mix up a few different flavors. If you’re using loose tea, mix the flavors dry and put them in a blender.
Lavender– induces drowsiness and goes best with chamomile.
Turmeric– gives you natural sleep benefits.
Lemon balm– reduces stress and helps to relieve both indigestion and anxiety.
Ginger root –is excellent for digestion, so if your stomach is upset before bed or if you have a cold and adding ginger to your tea can soothe your stomach and you.
Cinnamon – is high in cinnamaldehyde, which is responsible for many of the spice’s health benefits. Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar levels and fight infections. Stir your tea with a cinnamon stick to get the small amount you need, while not overpowering the other flavors.
