Are you having troubles while sleeping and wake up in the middle of the night? It feels awful if it happens regularly and also it is not good for the health
Luckily, there are three ingredients you can use to prepare this “magic mixture” and create your way to a good night’s sleep.
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- ¼ teaspoon of raw honey
- 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
These three ingredients can help your body be sustained throughout the night. The mixture also decreases the impact of spikes in stress hormones or cortisol, which can be the reason why you wake up in the middle of the night.
To prepare this mixture, you need to take the three ingredients before going to bed.
Mix the coconut oil and raw honey in a bowl and add some sea salt in it. Then mix all ingredients. Take the mixture with a spoon and swallow. Then, chase with water.
Take the coconut oil, raw honey separately and chase with water. Afterwards you can add the sea salt in a small cup of water and drink it.
In case you wake up in the middle of the night, drink the mixture again and you will fall back asleep easier, in around half an hour or less.
Why this mixture helps?
Coconut’s fat provides energy to your body throughout the night. Consuming it before going to bed prevents waking up hungry. Also, it prevents increasing the blood sugar, which often leads to sleeping problems.
Honey will not increase your blood sugar, but helps you have a better sleeps. It provides the sufficient amount of storage of liver glycogen for the brain. When there isn’t enough liver glycogen to boost the brain with energy, the adrenal glands drain more stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol. High amounts of these stress hormones can lead to problematic sleeping.
Salt is one of the most helpful ingredient before going to bed because it aids in lowering the stress hormones as well. This ingredient aids the production of energy, so your body’s energy will be sustained during the night. Enough sodium in the blood can reduce the drain of adrenaline or cortisol.
