In order for the body to rest and recharge its batteries for the next day, it needs an average of 7-8 hours of undisturbed sleep.
However, sometimes due to too many obligations but also a hundred thoughts in our head, it seems impossible to fall asleep.
What you drink at bedtime can have a big impact on whether you might fall asleep. Consumption of some drinks is recommended just before going to bed because they have a beneficial effect on sleep.
The first and most accessible drink is definitely water. Many people keep a bottle of water by their bedside, and this is not without reason. Water has no sugar, quenches thirst, and contains no calories. It is recommended that you consume more of it during the day so that you do not wake up going to the toilet in the evening.
Herbal tea at bedtime will have a calming effect on the body. Fresh basil tea is especially recommended, which reduces the level of stress hormone (cortisol). There are also teas made from chamomile, valerian, mint, which are suitable for peaceful sleep, calming you down, and providing stress relief.
Warm milk before bed is extremely effective. Although this is not a favorite drink for many, in order to reduce the taste of lactose, you can combine it with a teaspoon of honey, cloves, cinnamon, or turmeric, which has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Unsweetened, sour cherry juice helps people who suffer from insomnia. A study conducted on respondents over the age of 50 showed that those who drank cherry juice twice a day managed to sleep as much as 84 minutes longer than those who did not. Cherries are rich in ingredients associated with healthy sleep.
