Does warm milk really help you fall asleep?

In brief: Maybe!

The idea is that the tryptophan (found in turkey as well!) helps you to relax by increasing serotonin in the brain.
A glass of warm milk to help you fall asleep has never been proven, but if you feel it helps then it probably does! its not harmful, just don't drink too much or you will wake up all night having to go to the bathroom!
