Can't sleep? Try warm milk
26 Apr 2010
Different people have different sleep patterns. Some people can survive with only a few hours sleep a night, while others need at least 8 hours to get them through the day.
Sometimes things can cause disruption to people's sleeping patterns, making it hard to fall asleep. Tossing and turning all night isn't fun, so it's good to have some tricks up your sleeve to help you nod off.
How about this? Studies have shown that the amino acid L-tryptophan helps people sleep better. When milk is warmed it releases this amino acid. So getting up and having a cup of warm milk might just be the thing to help you catch some Z's.
