Moon Milk is a soothing beverage derived from Ayurvedic traditions. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic health science that places emphasis on the mind-body connection. In Ayurveda, a warm milk mixture called “Moon Milk” is consumed before bed to remedy sleeplessness, anxiety and insomnia. Moon milk can range from a simple mix of milk and honey to more complex spices, fruit, adaptogens and herbs.
At Moon Cycle, we put our own spin on things and designed the perfect Moon Milk for women using herbs and adaptogens to target common female imbalances like hormone imbalances, stress, and sleep issues.
Adaptogens are supplements that are derived from plants and are dense in nutrients. They can help destress, lower blood sugar, boost the immune system, improve sleep, and provide many other benefits.
Each of our 3 Moon Milks contain different adaptogens with a different focus. They can be used to support different times of your cycle, or can be used at any time based on the flavor you love. Moon Milks can also be used for perimenopause and post menopause! Check out our blog on menopause here.
