A Mixture Of Honey And Milk Gives You These 4 Results
Mixing Honey And Milk, Then Drinking It Would Give You These 4 Results
It is often surprising that many of the questions we seek answers to have answers that are right before us, staring at us in our faces, but we sometimes become too preoccupied to see the answers or we just overlook or even underestimate such answers as being too insignificant to count as answers. When we engage in this act of dismissing the things that seem like the 'smaller' solutions, what we invariably do is prolong our search for solutions when we could have just solved the problems at once and move on with life.

In this regard, we can say our health and quest to live a healthy life is one of such questions posed to us, but unfortunately, we often don't see that the answers to the questions are right in front of us in the form of our diets. Sometimes when we see the answers, we often think of the 'big' solutions in form of drugs and medications, thinking the 'smaller' solutions are just too insignificant to serve as the solution to the questions/challenges posed to us by our health. How wrong we often are!

Honey and milk are two of nature's best gifts to humanity. While few people are aware of the many benefits of these two nutrient-packed foods, many others do not, underestimating the potency of the two in taking care of our basic nutritional needs and even health. It must, however, be noted that the nutritional compositions of the two foods would leave many other foods green with envy as they are packed with nutrients that only a few other foods can rival.

Honey contains 80% natural sugar (mostly fructose and glucose), 18% water and 2% minerals, vitamins, pollen and protein. It is free of fat and cholesterol but rich in phenolic acids and flavonoids, which are great sources of natural antioxidants. On the other side of the spectrum lies milk, which is approximately 87% water, 4.9% carbohydrate in the form of lactose, 3.4% fat, 3.3% protein and contains all of the essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and other minor biological proteins and enzymes.
Below are four (4) benefits you can derive from these two classic combinations:
1. Improved Bone Health
Milk is the major factor here as it contains calcium which is an essential mineral needed for good bone formation and health. Milk is also rich in potassium, which is good for regulating blood pressure. Honey on the other hand contains antioxidants that prevent free radicals from damaging the structural component of the bone, hence why the mixing of both is good for improved bone health.
2. Improved Lung Health
Combining milk and honey is also good as honey is known to reduce inflammation in the bronchial tubes (airways within the lungs). The sweetness of honey is also helpful in triggering the saliva glands to produce more saliva, helping to keep the airways lubricated. So when you mix honey with warm milk, the warm beverage would kill and flush out bacteria to ease respiratory tract infections.
3. Improved Stomach Performance
The combination of honey and milk is also potent against stomach infections as they both have antioxidant and antibacterial properties. This means they can destroy harmful bacteria in the stomach, warding off infections and are also known to be effective against constipation, flatulence (farting) and intestinal disorders.
4. Sleep Improvement
Milk contains the amino acid L-tryptophan which has been found to aid sleep. Couple this with honey's natural enzymes which act as a mood lifter, you could be on your way to getting a cure for your inability to get quality sleep. Therefore, drinking milk and honey would facilitate the release of serotonin in the brain, helping the body to relax and lower cortisol (a stress hormone) levels in the body.
