In this case I’m suggesting that you feed your brain. During the day a spoonful of dark Italian chestnut honey, high in minerals and iron, relieves fatigue and tiredness and helps you continue to work energetically the rest of the day. For a good night’s sleep honey is a natural insomnia cure known to induce relaxing somnolence. In Italy honey is famed for its calming properties resulting in a better night’s sleep and sogni d’oro (sweet dreams). The theory is that a spoonful of honey at bedtime provides the body with enough glucose to ‘feed’ the brain during the night. This prevents or limits the early morning release of cortisol and adrenalin (stress hormones) which disturb sleep. It also stabilizes blood sugar levels and contributes to the release of melatonin.
The particular and complex flavor of dark Italian chestnut honey (Miele di Castagno) is very appealing makes it an incredible ingredient in cooking and as an alternative sweetener for oatmeal and milk which happens to be one of the 6 food combinations that help you sleep better at night.
