Are you struggling to fall asleep? Due to the pandemic situation, our sleeping cycle has been disturbed. A study has come across that around 35% of Indians suffer from insomnia or sleep apnea. Lack of sleep affects our brain, body and entire metabolism. Intake of some drinks that contain sugar, carbohydrates, proteins can induce restful sleep. Here are six drinks you can make at home to improve your sleep.

1. One Glass Of Warm Milk

One glass of warm milk before bed is a good relaxant because it contains tryptophan, an amino acid that affects the brain cells and makes us sleepy. In addition, milk has a good source of carbohydrates that also results in comforting both mind and body cells. Adding a pinch of nutmeg, cardamom with some crushed almonds would improve the taste of the regular boiled warm milk but also helps to promote a night of good peaceful sleep.

2. Honey In Warm Water

Honey contains some amount of tryptophan. Adding this in the lukewarm water or a cup of green tea is also relaxing. It relaxes your inner gut cells and tissues. This can give you a sweet night nap.

3. Almond and Saffron Milk

Almonds contain all vital nutrients that are known to alleviate stress and tension. In addition, a few strands of saffron to warm milk can enhance the nerve-regulating properties of the milk.

4. Chamomile Tea

Another popular and effective bedtime drink for years. Experts have come across that chamomile tea is used to aid those who had insomnia. The tea calms and soothes you providing a night of restful sleep. It is a caffeine-free drink and has a positive effect on rest and the body.

5. Coconut Water

Pure fresh coconut water not just energizes you but also presents a treasure trove of minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and an abundance of substances that calm down your mind and body.

6. Banana Shake

Bananas contain magnesium and potassium that relax the muscles. Blend banana with milk and sugar/ honey. It will eventually lift your mood and make you feel sleepy naturally.
