Dairy Products Before Bed Means Sounder Sleep
Recent studies confirm that drinking warm milk or eating other dairy products before bed (including cheese) can help us sleep better. Apparently cows milked after midnight have higher levels of melatonin in their milk which helps regulate sleep as well.
Warm milk has always been a bedtime tradition, and now research has shown why it helps. In addition to tryptophan, milk, yogurt and cheese are all rich calcium, which may help reduce stress. Combined, tryptophan and calcium may enhance one’s ability to fall asleep by producing melatonin, a key role in regulating day-to-night cycles in the human body.
You may get nightmares though.
