German Milk Might Aid Insomniacs
German Night Milk might aid Insomniacs is an interesting article from the Guardian, World News.
The German milk producer Milchkristalle GmbH patents ‘nocturnal milk’ said to contain higher levels of the sleep hormone melatonin. They claim it’s 25 times higher than in normal milk. Scientific research has proven that milk taken from cows during the night contains higher levels of melatonin.
Melatonin helps to regulate the bio-rythm of all mammals. The animals are also fed large amounts of clover, containing high levels of protein and the amino acid tryptophan – the key ingredient needed by the body to create melatonin. Could the milk help narcoleptics sleep better? The article does not comment on how much milk you would have to drink before bedtime to make the best use of the high melatonin levels just milk powder. It would be 2 million portions. Sounds like a right scam to me…
