Benefits of the ingredients
Pink Himalayan salt
The pink Himalayan salt contains about 84 essential and vital minerals for the body. Natural Himalayan salt helps the body recover and stimulates the functioning of many organs. Rich in magnesium, iodine, potassium and calcium, Himalayan salt battles sleep disorders and insomnia. Recall that a magnesium deficiency and certain nutrients can lead to sleep disorders.
High in fructose and glucose, honey promotes sleep by stimulating the secretion of melatonin (sleep hormone) and reduces the release of the stress hormone. In addition, honey consumption slightly increases insulin levels, causing the secretion of tryptophan (an essential amino acid for sleep) to the brain.
The mix of honey and salt increases the level of serotonin in the body; which provides a feeling of relaxation and improves sleep quality.
