Warm Milk
PostPosted: Thu 19 Aug, 2004  Reply with quote

it may be a coinsedence....[however u spell that]...but i had warm milk the other night and that same night...i had a LD....im not sure if it was related in any way. but i heard earlier that milk does help..but WARM milk not only might help u in LD...but it puts u to sleep. its just like turkey..but i think its better. anyways..ill have to work with it. and...it does sound gross. so if u dont like it..either dont drink it or hold ure nose...

found that if it was too hot..it doesnt work as well...keep it warm....which means put it in the microwave for like 1:00 minute tops.

Put about a tablespoon of honey in a glass, microwave it, and then put milk in the glass and then microwave it. Drink it right before bedtime and it will make you go to sleep faster.

Milk has something in it (jeff could explain this better) that helps put you to sleep, but it is hard for it to get to the brain unless you mix honey in with it. Honey has things in it that break down brain barriers that help the syuff in the milk to get to your brain.

8D i hope that made sense!

Milk increases Serotonin, which in turn makes you sleepy.

but sleeping pills screw up chances of having a LD and it screws up Recall.

I drink cold milk before I go to bed sometimes, It still takes me hours to get to sleep and never caused an LD.

Maybe the warmness helps somehow.

Well, that's like saying, "I don't fall asleep quickly when I drink iced tea, but when I drink hot tea, it relaxes me enough so I can dose off within minutes." Yes, temperature makes all the difference.

Does warming the milk make it taste bad? Also, Should I drink it RIGHT before bed, or an hour or two before?

I'd take the milk right before you go to bed.

But don't microwave it... jesus, please don't do that.

You can cause the milk to "curd" or get lumpy and you will actually have some cottage cheese type milk.

To make milk warm just pour it into a glass and drink it 30 minutes later.

But don't microwave it... jeez.

add honey if it tastes bad.smile

it usually makes me drowsy around 20-30 minutes after drinking.

question:
is it only milk from cows that contains tryptophan? would other dairy milks or even soya milk also contain it?

I was researching on the tryptophan and I've actually become intrigued with it. I have chosen this compound to become the subject of my chemistry research project.

I believe tryptophan is in most all dairy products and meats. It is one of the 8 essential amino acids.

I was reading a website and they said to ingest large amounts of carbohydrates to get the best out of the effect. When the carbohydrates hit your stomach your body will create large amounts of insulin to combat the projected sugar intake.

Well, the insulin will clean the blood of pretty much everything but tryptophan and it will have a one way ticket to the brain all to its self. The site also mentioned to do it on an empty stomach.

I guess the honey in the milk helps create insulin and the trytophan becomes more effective. Oh well, I don't know much anyway, I am still learning.

But if you want seratonin in your brain just pop a prozac, or take some extasy, its far more easier then the milk method.
