Insomnia stinks!  There's nothing worse than struggling to fall asleep and failing because your mind is racing or you're feeling stressed. But before reaching for a pill, there's a two-ingredient drink that users say is guaranteed to help. Simply mix warmed nut milk, like almond milk, with turmeric. Not only will the drink, dubbed 'Golden Milk' help you fall asleep, the turmeric will aid with relaxation and improve your overall mood. Almonds are full of magnesium, a mineral that supports bone, health, nerve and muscle function, has been shown to play a key role in how we sleep. Magnesium plays a role in supporting deep sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep. Among the many benefits that turmeric possesses, it is a great antioxidant, which may play a role in preventing heart disease and cancer, it can elevate you mood so that when you do wake you'll be ready to take on the world. Simply mix 2 cups of almond milk with 1 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric.  You can add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and one table spoon of honey if turmeric doesn't please your taste palate. Warm it up and use a whisk to mix it up. Happy sleeping!
