Natural sleep aids such as the blue moon milk do body and soul well
The secret of Blue Moon Milk
The amino acid tryptophan, which is found in milk as well as in almonds in large quantities, is converted into melatonin in the body. This is the so-called sleep hormone, which brings us all into the realm of dreams. That’s why having a glass of warm milk with honey at bedtime is not only delicious, but above all promote sleep.
The blue moon milk has even more in it, and in addition to milk or almond milk, the drink contains two other, very important ingredients that enhances their soothing and balancing effect even more. These are the medicinal plants Ashwagandha ( Withania somnifera ) and Blue Clitoris ( Clitoria ternatea ). Both are known from Ayurvedic medicine and have been used for many ailments for millennia.
Ashwagandha plant and roots
The miracle drug Ashwagandha
Translated from the Sanskrit Ashwagandha actually means”smell of the horse”. What was given mainly because of the general, strengthening effect of the plant. The herb is one of the most popular and effective adaptogens ever. And these plant substances naturally regulate the hormonal balance of the body and at the same time reduce the stress level of the psyche. Because of its strong sleep-promoting effect Ashwagandha is popularly also called dormouse.
Like other medicinal herbs, Ashwagandha has other valuable qualities to benefit from. For example, the herb is used by many as a popular aphrodisiac. Likewise for flatulence, nausea and dizziness as well as for mild depression and anxiety disorders, the medicinal plant shows best results.
Ashwagandha’s powdered form is ideal for general use – a remarkable tonic with great potential! However, one should still remember that this is an alternative dietary supplement that is not a medicine in the Western sense.

And where does the cool blue color of the trendy drink come from?
The fascinating blue of the Moon Milk is conferred by the Indian medicinal plant Clitoria ternatea, also called Blue Clitoris. In the English blogosphere she is known as Butterfly Pea Tea. The medicinal plant has it all, not only visually, but above all thanks to its anxiolytic and analgesic effect. In addition, it is a very effective natural nootropic that optimally strengthens concentration and brain performance. You can easily order both the powder and dried flowers online and even enjoy them as tea.
Of course, as ice tea in the summer
Alternatively you can use Blue Majik Spirullina Extract for the blue nuance of your Moon Milk. Spirullina is no less healthy and additionally has a strong, antioxidant effect on the human organism.
