An adequate night’s sleep is uber important to your health. While you sleep, your body performs all types of maintenance duties. Lack of sleep is linked to being overweight and is one of the biggest risks for obesity. There are many reasons for this, one of which is you eat more when you’re tired and the second most significant reason is the lack of energy to exercise.
A good night’s sleep improves concentration and productivity, while it also lowers your risk of heart disease and stroke. One study showed that continual lack of sleep could significantly improve the risk for diabetes. Lack of sleep impairs immune response, causes depression and increases inflammation.
Having these two ingredients, it is possible to achieve a better night’s sleep naturally.
- Mix 5 teaspoons of organic raw honey and 1 or 2 tablespoon of Himalayan pink sea salt (I like stronger taste, so you can adjust the amount of salt). Store in a jar.
① When you’re ready to hit the sack, scoop 1/2 tsp of this mixture, put under your tongue and allow it to dissolve naturally.
② I drink some water to wash off the sweetness of honey in my mouth, OR you may brush your teeth again before going to bed.
③ This natural remedy for sleep should help induce sleep and significantly reduce grogginess when waking up.
Why these Ingredients work:
Himalayan sea salt
Himalayan sea salt works because it includes more than 80 different elements that the body needs for various processes, including helping the body in recovering from the day before.
Honey, the other ingredient for a better night’s sleep, contains glucose that effectively supplies our cells with necessary energy, which also aids recovery.
When combined, the Himalayan sea salt and raw honey work by increasing serotonin – an important neurotransmitter in the brain – that is necessary for inducing feelings of relaxation and well-being.
The combination of these ingredients allows us to transition to a relaxed, drifting state of mind and ensures that we get a better night’s sleep.
