What is moon milk?

Moon milk is a beverage that has gained popularity in recent times due to its potential health benefits. It is prepared by combining milk, either dairy or non-dairy, with a blend of herbs including ashwagandha, turmeric, and cinnamon. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. It is believed to help the body manage stress and anxiety, which can contribute to better sleep quality. It is often consumed before bedtime to help improve sleep quality. We add different flowers and herbs in addition to ashwagandha and spices for our moon milk variations.

Hawthorn Berries: Some studies suggest that hawthorn may help improve blood flow and circulation by gently dilating blood vessels. This could ease occasional discomfort and support a healthy heart rhythm. Protecting the melody: Hawthorn’s antioxidants go beyond free radical defense. They may also help protect blood vessels from damage, contributing to overall cardiovascular health. (Trusted source)

Spices: Warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom not only add a touch of sweetness and depth of flavor to the moon milk, but they also possess warming and comforting properties. These spices have been used in traditional medicine for centuries to aid digestion, promote relaxation, and improve sleep quality.

Warm Milk: Whether you choose dairy or plant-based milk, the warmth itself is a comforting and nurturing element. Drinking a warm beverage before bed can signal to your body that it’s time to wind down, promoting relaxation and preparing you for a restful sleep. And did you know that drinking warm milk enhances the nutrition quotient in the milk? And it’s naturally high in tryptophan, which promotes sleepiness. (Trusted source)
