Sleep is one of the best gifts you can give your body. Getting an adequate amount of rest has a plethora of game-changing benefits, and overall leads to greater health. One of the most complicated aspects of sleep is just relaxing enough to let your body shut down for a while. Tossing and turning or staring at the ceiling is not only frustrating but also a waste of precious sleep time. Try this Receptra CBD Sleep Tea recipe and give those poor sheep a break!
Receptra CBD Sleep Tea Ingredients:
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Honey
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/8 tsp Nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp Blackstrap Molasses
- 1 dropper Receptra Plus
Cinnamon is a very special spice, capable of turning almost any dish into a dessert, even without added sugar. The benefits of cinnamon extend far beyond its amazing taste. Have you ever woken up randomly out of a dead sleep for no apparent reason? One justification for this sleep disruption may be a change in blood pressure. Cinnamon helps alleviate this issue by stabilizing glucose levels and promoting circulation in the bloodstream. As an added bonus, the antibacterial and digestive benefits will aid in overnight recovery.
It may seem counter-productive to have any sugar before bed, but honey fuels the liver. The glycogen is converted to energy that the body needs to get through the night. A little honey could help prevent sudden wake ups. Another benefit of the little insulin spike from honey is that it allows the compound tryptophan (famous for putting you to sleep after turkey on Thanksgiving) to more easily enter the brain.
Warm milk has been used to lull young ones to sleep by moms and grandmas for generations. Is there any truth to the theory of warm milk for sleep? Kind of. Milk does contain tryptophan and when combined with the carbohydrates in honey, it can enter the brain. Quantities are fairly minor, so if you are lactose intolerant, don’t be afraid to substitute for another milk of your choice.
It only takes a pinch of nutmeg to add flavor and supply an extra sleep-inducing boost. The chemical “trimyristin” is known to relax muscles and nerves to help you find your sleepy place. Nutmeg has been used in ancient medicine for centuries to induce sleep along with several other health benefits including better digestion and body detoxification.
Blackstrap molasses is the byproduct of the sugar refining process. It has a distinct taste that adds to this sleep tonic. Blackstrap molasses contains several nutrients linked to better sleep such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin B-6. These are all nutrients that are often supplemented because the body is deficient in them without a conscious effort to consume them regularly.
Receptra CBD Oil
CBD oil on its own has the ability to promote relaxation and restoration of balance in the body. This is one of the main reasons people use CBD oil for sleep. Receptra CBD oil also contains MCT oil which helps with bioavailability and has the added benefit of helping you stay asleep throughout the night. The body needs energy to keep functioning even when sleeping. The slowly released fats in MCT oil are great to accomplish this purpose.
