The worst thing you can experience late at night after having a long day is not being able to fall asleep as soon as you can. You have done the right things as well to increase your chances of getting some good sleep. You did not drink your coffee after 12 noon, you did some exercises earlier in the day, and you are keeping the room dark to help your melatonin levels increase. You also put away your screens a few hours before going to bed. The temperature of your room is perfect, and you are dressed comfortably. However, you just cannot go to sleep. You keep tossing and turning.
You decided to go to another room to read a bland book hoping that you would become tired out. And you are starting to feel tired. Then you go back to bed. However, you just cannot get yourself to fall asleep no matter what you try to do. Even after doing the right things by keeping your sleep hygiene clean, you can still struggle with falling asleep every now and then. What can you really do in order to fall asleep quickly? Fortunately, there is one thing you probably have not tried that is going to help you fall asleep quickly. And that is drinking milk 2.0!
What Is Milk 2.0?
If you are thinking about the warm milk that your mother used to make you as a kid when you could not sleep, that is not what milk 2.0 is. And you can be relieved to learn that if warm milk did not help you fall asleep at all. This drink is a mixture of milk and other herbs, and it is absolutely delicious. And if you are lactose intolerant or have a dairy allergy, then no problem. You don’t need to use cow’s milk. You can use almond milk in the mix. By the way, the milk is not a potent ingredient that will help you sleep. The secret ingredient is an adaptogen. If you have never heard of this ingredient, it is something used frequently in Chinese medicine. The great thing about adaptogens is that it helps reduce stress, keeps your immune system strong, and helps you think clearly.
However, it helps you sleep when it is time for you to sleep. You can get them in capsules and examples are maca powder, roseroot, as well as ginseng. Though, you may not be able to make this secret drink because there is a good chance that you do not have the ingredients for it. Hopefully, you can fall asleep eventually but you will want to head to the health food store or supermarket in order to grab the ingredients to make the secret drink if you struggle to fall asleep in the future. Let’s talk about what you need and how to make the secret drink?
