Many people underestimate the importance of how much sleep an adult human brain and body need in order to maintain good health. The recommended aim is to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night however many people in their 60s struggle to have even half of this.

If you are having trouble sleeping at night you might want to try this natural remedy….

All you need is some organic honey and Himalayan sea salt.

The reason these two ingredients work so effectively is because both honey and salt have properties that the body uses to function. Himalayan sea salt has elements that the body uses for recovery while honey contains glucose (sugar) which supplies cells with energy. Combined they increase serotonin which is a chemical produced in the brain and is responsible for feeling relaxed and happy. The more relaxed you are the easier it is for you to drift off to the sleep.

The recipe:

Mix 5 teaspoons of organic honey with 1 teaspoon of sea salt and seal the mixture in a jar.

Before you get into bed, place a bit of this mixture under the tongue and allow it to dissolve naturally.

  1. My husbands neurologist told him it is important to go to bed happy and relaxed. My husbands condition can disturb his sleep. He has found the best thing for him is to watch Hogans Heroes before bed. He enjoys it and it relaxes him and he usually has a good night’s sleep. I don’t know whether it would help anyone else.
