Top 5 Drinks to Help You Fall Asleep Faster
We've all been there... restlessly counting down the hours until your alarm clock goes off, and no amount of counting sheep can help us fall asleep faster. In order to feel refreshed and maximise our brain function, specialists recommend no less than 5-6 hours of sleep per night. We've compiled a list of the 5 best drinks to help you drift off into a sweet slumber:
1. Camomile tea
Probably not much of a surprise, camomile tea has long been hailed the number 1 night-time beverage. Considered a mild tranquilizer, try a cup of camomile tea 30 minutes before you go to bed for a dreamy night’s sleep.
2. Lemon balm tea
A cure-all type of tea, lemon balm helps to reduce stress and anxiety, improve digestion, and enhance sleep. For best results, try combing with some camomile tea for extra sleepiness.
3. Warm milk and honey
There’s really no better combination than warmed milk and a spoonful of sweet honey. Containing melatonin and tryptophan, these sleep inducing properties will have you snoring in no time.
4. Cherry juice
If tea is, quite literally, 'not your cup of tea' then cherry juice might just be the answer. Cherries contain melatonin which is known as the sleep hormone. Perfect for a warm summer night, try having a glass of tart cherry juice before bedtime to cool down and drift off. (link to other blog post)
5. Lavender infused teas
Used for a variety of homeopathic medicinal purposes, lavender is believed to promote calming and reduces stress.
