Powerful ingredients to promote healthy sleep
Ashwagandha is the key herbal ingredient in Moon Milk. It is known to have positive effects on the endocrine central nervous systems, because it has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. This herb also improves sleep quality and sleep onset latency, the amount of time it takes to fall asleep.
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. It is a powerful compound that can help reduce markers of inflammation and increase the levels of antioxidants in the body. BioCBD+ Total Body Care capsules contain curcumin sourced from turmeric, therefore ensuring you can reap the full benefits of this plant.
Milk has natural mild sedative properties, which is why it is a traditional children’s bedtime drink. Non-dairy milks such as almond, soy or oat milk are a good substitute for those who don’t consume cow’s milk. Cow’s milk, soy milk and some other fortified non-dairy milks contain tryptophan – an amino acid that helps to increase levels of serotonin and melatonin. These two hormones are essential for a good night’s sleep.
*Ashwagandha is safe for most people to consume, but it can interact with thyroid, blood pressure, and blood sugar medications. Check with your health practitioner to ensure ashwagandha is appropriate for your health. While moon milk made with ashwagandha is generally safe to consume, drinking too much in a day could be harmful. Save this calming and healing moon milk ritual for bedtime.
