In order to be able to go through the day, one needs a good amount of sleep. However, issues with falling asleep are more frequent that we can imagine. The most common reasons which lead to sleep issues are anxiety, stress, overthinking, and worrying over stressful events. Further, the sleeping can be also affected because of certain medications.
When a person doesn’t get the recommended amount of sleep, they have difficulties performing the daily tasks and maintaining an active social life. The lack of sleep may also affect person’s long-term and short-term memory. People who sleep under seven hours react emotionally regarding everyday situations are more likely to be obese and even get diabetes.
Luckily, there are natural remedies that can help overcome these issues, and one of them is the banana tea.Yes, you heard that right.
This tea not only improves your sleeping, but it is very tasty at the same time.
In order to prepare it, you will need organic bananas because bananas that are not organic are treated with various pesticides and we encourage you to eat the boiled banana peels.
At the same time, the banana peels are rich in magnesium, which prevents sleep disruptions, and potassium, which aids muscle relaxation. What’s most, this tea only takes minutes to make.
- 1 banana, organic
- one tiny saucepan of water
- a dash of cinnamon, if desired
All you need to do is cut the edges of the banana, then peel it off and boil it for around ten minutes. Pour the liquid into a mug while using a colander. You can use cinnamon if you feel like it. Drink this an hour before going to bed. You can also eat the boiled banana along with its peel.
This drink is a natural remedy which can easily help you avoid the medications which usually come with side effects such as:
- inability to concentrate and remember
- abdominal pain
- shakes uncontrollably
