Ingredient Breakdown And Why They Help With Sleep

I didn’t randomly select the ingredients to make this calming smoothie for sleep. 

Each ingredient was researched carefully.

Furthermore, the ingredients selected also work in harmony with each other, creating a well-balanced tasty smoothie at the same time.

Here is a breakdown of the ingredients:

  • Banana: Contains serotonin and melatonin, promoting relaxation.
  • Spinach: High in magnesium, aids muscle relaxation and sleep regulation.
  • Milk: Provides tryptophan, a precursor to sleep-inducing serotonin.
  • Honey: Small amount boosts insulin, enhancing tryptophan’s access to the brain.
  • Almond Butter: Rich in magnesium and protein, supports muscle relaxation and sustained energy through the night.
