Do you have complaints about sleepless nights? Well, there is a wonderful home remedy that can help you - milk.
Milk contains the amino acid tryptophan that stimulates the brain to produce sleep-inducing chemicals serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is the brain's feel-good chemical that relaxes you along with reducing tension and stress. And at night the brain converts serotonin into melatonin (with the help of calcium present in milk itself) that keeps your internal clock on form and gives you a good night's sleep.
Researchers say that eating some carbohydrate-rich food along with the protein-rich milk increases the production of tryptophan making it easily available to the brain. Also, consuming milk at bedtime helps athletes in muscle recovery and decreases age-related muscle loss in older adults in addition to inducing sleep. If you wish to check whether this remedy works for your sleep trouble, try it out today and feel the magic.
Tip: You can have a fruit like banana or apple along with a glass of warm milk to stimulate sleep-inducing brain chemicals for a better nap at night.
