A similar variant to Moon Milk is the so-called "Golden Milk," a type of milk that has been flavored with turmeric that has been a part of the South Asian culture for a long time.
Moon Milk, on the other hand, contains an ayurvedic collection of spices (which is a system of medicine that has its historical roots in the Indian subcontinent) together with honey and herbal supplements, which have been specifically designed to improve the way your adrenal system and hormones work. According to the HelloGiggles website, "The adaptogens in Moon Milk promote relaxation."
Apart from the special ingredients that have been added in order to create Moon Milk, it is also known that milk itself works pretty nicely to put a person to sleep. The reason why this happens is that milk contains tryptophan and melatonin - two natural substances that have been known to induce sleep in the people that consume them.
In order to make Moon Milk at home, you should first fill a cup with hot milk and add your own amount of sweetener (in most cases honey or maple syrup are used), then add an adaptogen powder (that is a herbal supplement that needs to be separately purchased). After that you can flavor the drink with spices such as cinnamon and cardamom. Finally, you can mix the substances together until you get the perfect flavor of Moon Milk.
