How Manuka Honey Can Help You Get a Better Night’s Sleep

Improving the quality of your sleep can be a challenge, but it’s essential to ensure you wake up feeling refreshed and energized each day. There are several ways to improve sleep quality, and one natural solution that has been gaining popularity is Tiaki Manuka honey.

Tiaki Manuka honey is a unique type of honey produced by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush, which is native to New Zealand. It has been used for centuries for its numerous health benefits, including its ability to help improve sleep quality.

In this article, we will discuss how honey can help improve your sleep quality, along with tips and tricks to incorporate it into your daily routine.

Understanding Manuka Honey

Our UMF Certified Tiaki Manuka honey is known for its high concentration of methylglyoxal (MGO), which is a natural compound that provides potent antibacterial properties. It also contains amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making it an excellent addition to your diet.

How Manuka Honey Can Help Improve Sleep Quality

Tiaki Manuka honey can help improve sleep quality in several ways.

Promotes Serotonin

First, it promotes the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep. Serotonin is a precursor to melatonin, a hormone that plays a vital role in sleep regulation.

Promotes Melatonin

Also, melatonin, a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain at night, is made easier to release by manuka honey as the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle is linked to the hormone melatonin.  According to several studies, honey encourages the production of the hormone melatonin, which helps to start sleep, as well as hormones that assist the body heal itself while sleeping.

Promotes Glycogen Levels

During the night, honey might give your brain an easily accessible fuel supply. More particularly, it restores the glycogen stores in your liver.  You may wake up at night because a low glycogen level alerts your brain that it’s time to eat.

Balances Blood Sugar Levels

Manuka honey has a low glycemic index, which means it doesn’t cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. Consuming high-glycemic-index foods before bed can lead to blood sugar crashes and nighttime awakenings.

Nighttime hunger pangs can be upsetting. Your body sends out a signal telling you that it is time to eat since your blood sugar is unstable. Just before bed, a tiny bit of honey helps to balance blood sugar and stop this reaction from happening, which might make you more awake.

Calming Effect

Lastly, Manuka honey has a calming effect on the body due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It helps reduce inflammation in the body, which can lead to restlessness and difficulty falling asleep.

Tips and Tricks for Incorporating Tiaki Manuka Honey into Your Daily Routine

Here are some tips and tricks to help you incorporate Manuka honey into your daily routine:

Mix Honey and Milk Before Bedtime

Taking a spoonful of our Tiaki manuka honey on its own or combining it with a cup of warm milk before bed has proven to enhance the quality of sleep. Include it as part of your evening relaxing ritual. Honey can assist in enhancing your sleep, in addition to meditation, relaxing music, or a bedtime tale.

Add Manuka Honey to Your Tea

Adding a teaspoon of Manuka honey to your favorite herbal tea is an excellent way to relax before bedtime. Chamomile tea is especially helpful for promoting sleep and relaxation, and Manuka honey complements its calming effects.

Take Manuka Honey Directly

You can also take Manuka honey directly by consuming a teaspoon before bed. Manuka honey has a rich flavor that can be enjoyed on its own or added to a warm glass of water.

Combine Manuka Honey with Other Sleep-Enhancing Ingredients

You can also combine Manuka honey with other sleep-enhancing ingredients like lavender, lemon balm, or valerian root. These herbs have been used for centuries for their calming and relaxing effects and can complement the sleep-promoting benefits of Manuka honey.

Use Manuka Honey as a Natural Sweetener

Manuka honey can be used as a natural sweetener in your favorite recipes. It’s an excellent alternative to processed sugars and can provide added health benefits to your diet.
