In India, many people have some warm milk, often with a pinch of turmeric, before they go to bed. It is believed to help with better sleep? But, what does science say? As per a study, drinking some warm milk before bed had a positive effect on sleep. The reason for it might lie in an amino acid called tryptophan. This amino acid plays a role in the production of hormones called serotonin and melatonin. The former is a neurotransmitter associated with mood and memory. And our body releases melatonin in response to darkness to make us sleepy. Although milk might help with sleep, those who are lactose intolerant, have irritable bowel syndrome, or are otherwise allergic to the drink, should not have it and explore some alternatives.
Now coming to cashews, some nuts such as almonds, walnuts and cashews have been shown to have a positive effect on sleep. As per the Sleep Foundation, these nuts contain melatonin, along with minerals such as zinc and magnesium. And, a study involving older adults suffering from insomnia showed that a combination of these three elements helped these individuals with sleep. So, these might be the reason behind Rujuta’s cashew milk effect on sleep.
