Luckily, there are three fixings you can use to set up this “enchantment blend” and set your way to a decent night’s rest.
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- ¼ teaspoon of raw honey
- 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
These three fixings help your body be supported for the duration of the night. The blend additionally brings down the effect of spikes in stress hormones or cortisol, which can make you wake up amidst the night.
How to get ready and utilize the blend?
You have to take the three fixings 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. Then, you can add the sea salt in a small cup of water and drink it.
If you wake up in the middle of the night, take the mixture again and you will fall back asleep easier, in around half an hour or less.
Why this mixture helps?
Coconut’s fat gives 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 doesn’t increase your blood sugar, but helps you sleep better. It offers an adequate amount of storage of liver glycogen for the brain.
When there isn’t enough liver glycogen to provide energy for the brain, the adrenal glands drain more stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol. High amounts of these stress hormones can lead to problematic sleeping.
Salt is another helpful ingredient before heading to bed because it aids in lowering the stress hormones as well. This ingredient helps the production of energy, so your body’s energy will be sustained during the night. Adequate sodium in the blood reduces the drain of adrenaline or cortisol.
