Can honey help you sleep?

on May 06, 2021

Yes, it can help you get a good night’s sleep!

Whilst some may have a tablespoon of honey for breakfast spread on a warm crumpet, oth-ers may prefer eating honey as an afternoon treat on their favourite scone or tea cake.

Honey is so good for sleep, you might want to keep some beside your bed, or in the bathroom cabinet too…!

There are many health benefits to organic honey; from hydrating your skin to soothing your throat, it can help heal wounds and can also help you get a sweet night’s sleep.

Organic honey, eaten just before bed, helps you sleep in three ways:

  1. Have you ever woken up at 2am feeling famished? Organic honey provides easy-to-ac-cess fuel for your brain throughout the night, specifically keeping liver glycogen (blood sugar) levels topped up, which means you won’t wake up in the middle of the night hungry.
  2. Your brain’s main source of energy is glucose, accessible sugar, so when you eat a teaspoon of honey before bed, what you’re actually doing is fuelling your brain to re-pair itself while you sleep. Amazing!
  3. Honey's natural sugars also raise your insulin levels, allowing tryptophan to enter the brain. Tryptophan is an amino acid that is turned into niacin, which creates serotonin, which produces melatonin, the essential sleep hormone.
