9. Sleep Aid
Struggling to fall asleep? Try some honey. Honey helps the body to produce serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’. Serotonin is converted by the brain into melatonin, a hormone that is important in the control of the duration and quality of sleep. Honey also contains many amino acids, including tryptophan, which is converted to serotonin by the brain, further increasing the production of melatonin. It’s not an old wives tale that a glass of warm milk and honey before bed will help you have a good night’s sleep. If that’s not possible, why not try a spoonful of honey?
