Are you among the millions of people around the world suffering from sleeping problems and insomnia and want to know how to sleep better? Are you sick and tired of waking up night after night unable to get a decent night’s sleep?
If you are among this unfortunate ones we have the solution for you which will help you fall asleep instantly and wake up refreshed. You only need three ingredients to prepare this “magic mixture” and fall asleep like a baby.
This is what you need:
- 1 tbsp. of coconut oil
- ¼ tsp. of raw honey
- ⅛ of sea salt
These amazing three ingredients help your body relax during the night and the combination lowers the impact of spikes in stress hormones or cortisol, which is what keeps you up and wakes you up every night.
Preparation and method of use:
For this treatment to be effective you need to take all three ingredients before you go to sleep. There are two options you can consume this remedy:
How to sleep better – 1st Option
You can mix the coconut oil and honey and add the sea salt. Mix it all together and consume it with a spoon. Drink a glass of water afterwards
How to sleep better – 2nd Option
You can take the coconut oil and raw honey separately, without mixing them and then drink a cup of water. In the end mix the salt with some water and drink it too.
If by any chance you wake up during the night take the remedy and go back to sleep, you’ll fall asleep again in less than 30 minutes.
Why is this combination helpful?
Coconut oil provides you energy during the night and helps you feel full, preventing waking up hungry. It also stops you blood sugar levels spiking in the middle of the night, which is the most common reason why you wake up.
Even though honey is sweet it doesn’t increase your sugar levels, but it helps you fall asleep faster. It provides the necessary amount of liver glycogen storage for the brain. If there isn’t enough liver glycogen to provide energy for the brain, the adrenal glands secret more stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol. And if there are high levels of this hormones it usually leads to difficulties sleeping.
And last but not least, salt. It also helps in reducing the stress hormone levels and provides you with enough energy to keep your body sustained during the night.
