Does a glass of milk before bed really help you sleep, if so how?

A: Milking It.... From what I understand, a glass of milk before bed really won''t do anything to help you fall asleep. The reason this myth got started is that milk contains melatonin, a hormone that is a relaxation hormone. However, there''s so little melatonin in milk that it really shouldn''t do anything to help you fall asleep. It also contains some amino acids that supposedly could do the trick, but again, the amount is so small that it shouldn''t really work - only in theory.If milk helps people fall asleep, especially warm milk, it may have something to do with the fact that breast milk is warm. And if you subconsciously associate warm milk with being a baby, it will most likely remind...

Does warm milk really lull us to dreamland?

A: Dear Reader, A cup of warm milk is no magic sleep potion, yet it is probably the most common food associated with bedtime. Milk contains two substances that are known to be related to sleep and relaxation, the hormone melatonin and the amino acid tryptophan. The amount of melatonin in a glass of milk is minute, much less than what would be taken in a supplement. The amount of tryptophan in milk is also small. In addition, our digestive process is complex. Considering these factors, it is unlikely that a glass of warm or cold milk would shorten the length of time that it takes to fall asleep. Though milk components and serving temperature are not likely to influence the onset of sleep...


How do you clean your eye glasses?

A: I always use paper kitchen roll...........or toilet paper.........better than cleaning cloths etc. Sometimes I wipe with a paper towel or my shirt (Cotton). If, they oily and smudged I use a little warm water in the kitchen and Dawn Dish soap. Cleans them up real good and I dry with a paper towel. kleenex..toilet paper..friend''s shirt xD First, don''t ever use your clothing because particles of dirt can get into the weave of some materials and cause scratching. I prefer either cloth diapers, which work great or Scotch Brite High Performance Cleaning Cloths by 3M (just make sure you get the ones that don''t have any cleaner in them because the material alone is what works wonders. Second, I don''t trust most cleaners because I''ve had them mess up the tent on my


Cleaning Eye glasses?

A: I am not sure what you mean by speckles. Cleaning glasses should be easy. Use a 100% soft cotton dish cloth (like a flour sack cloth) and an eyeglass specific cleaner OR warm (not hot) water with a pure soap if necessary. Ordinary glass cleaners can be harsh on eyeglass coating and can cause them to deteriorate and start coming off. ''Paper products'' such as tissues, toilet paper and paper towels are wood products and can contain bits of wood pulp which can potentially scratch glasses. Microfiber cloths also work well for quick cleaning. The best thing to do with your ''speckled'' issue, is to bring them into and eye


What is the Best Way to Clean glasses?

A: There are a variety of ways to clean glasses, all of which focus on removing residue without damaging the lenses. It is very important to know what kind of glasses you have before you clean them, however, as some glasses have special protective finishes which can be damaged through some cleaning processes. When you order new glasses, make sure to ask about any special care directions your optometrist has for the new lenses. One of the best ways to clean glasses quickly is with specialized lens wipes, which are formulated to be gentle on the glass or plastic used to make glasses lenses. Many optometrists sell such...


How do I clean dirt and oil off my glasses, without leaving streaks?

A: Oil needs something to dissolve it. Here''s a scratch-free way. Liquid dish detergent like Dawn is excellent for doing that. Pour it straight onto the glasses, use your finger to spread the detergent across the full lenses, then hold under the faucet rinsing with water until all the bubbles are gone. You can buy wipes in these little pouches kind of like the wet wipes you get if you buy buffalo wings. I believe they are called lens cloths. They work really well. I''ve heard you can just simply clean them with soap and water too, but I''ve never actually done it. Those wipes are amazing though. What kind of soap are you using? If it''s that bad, try using Dawn. Get glasses cleaner or even just regular Windex. I put those on my


If your head hurts everyday you need glasses??

A: maybe your just really stressed out Jessi it is one reason out of many but confirm. pl see what suits you. If you are in cold country use all warm things.

Bent my glasses. :/?

A: it wont cost much at all 5-10 dollars. they might not even charge you if you go back to where you got them. it will only take them about 10 seconds to fix they have a machine that heats them up so they can bend it easily. The lens kept popping out of my husband''s glasses. He took them to Pearle Vision, told them what was wrong, and they fixed them for free! He didn''t even buy his glasses from there, and they didn''t ask him. They just fixed them. Usually those places have a sort of heating pad that they rub the glasses on to make them flexible, and it''s no problem to quickly bend them back the right way. So, if I were you, I would take them somewhere like that. It will cost nothing unless part of the


I drank 4 glasses of wine last pm and now I am so hung over. Help me?

A: water makes it worse, salt water or crackers will make you sick and make it worse, so drink loads of black coffee and it will liven you up and drain all the wine from you good luck i always take a Motrin, when i drink alot....prevents hangovers...i suggest taking a Motrin and taking a nap Mmm.. No way to really get over a hang over, but I can give you a couple tips on how to not get a hang over after drinking for the future :P 1. This one is less effective but meh, trying eating sunflower seeds before bed, they help you sober up a bit. 2. Drink some water before bed, it keeps you hydrated, which lowers the chances of getting a hang over! our system does not tolerates alcoholic drinks, Drink a lot of water so you can throw up and get it out of your system, I hate it too but it works plus...


Is it true that you burn 40 calories drinking a glass of cold water?

A: Um, not quite. You must have lost your mind. Look! Gullible''s written on the ceiling! No, it does require a tiny ammount of energy to warm yourself up after drinking ice water, but not enough to make a difference, and certainly not 40 calories. Nope sorry unfortunatly just drinking a cold glass of water does not burn 40 calories nooo wut we learned in science is that exceessive amounts of water bloat ur body. it helps the chemical reactions neccesssary for survival to occur within ur body, but it fills u up and although it doesn''t make an extreme difference, water can make u overall healthier, yet it wil NOT burn any calories wutsoever! im serious and dont worry im not a total nerd i just sound like it cuase we just learned this nope its...
