The real and ugly truth is that many people around the world have sleeping problems. And we all know that feeling – you turn around all night, you stare at the ceiling, you think about your life, and the next thing you see is the sun coming out and you need to get up and go to work or school. Many different factors, both external and internal, can influence your brain, hormones and nervous system which can offset your sleep or deprive us of quality sleep. We all know that the easiest thing to do is to grab a sleeping pill, right? But, you should ask yourself – is that a good solution? Well, this “solution” may work short-term, but in the long term, you are hindering your body’s health and natural abilities. The experts say that sleeping pills have known side effects such as dizziness, constipation, stomach pain, difficulty focusing, memory problems and harm to the central nervous system.
As we said, sleep is extremely important for all of us, which means that when you are deprived of sleep, you lose out on what your body can do to function optimally. Your cognitive thinking skills are impaired, your motor skills decline, your energy drops, and you’re at even more risk for diseases and health conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cancer. Yes, lack of sleep can be really bad for you. Your body needs at least 8 hours of good night sleep. The consequences of insomnia can be really bad for you. If your body doesn’t get 8 hours of sleep, it suffers. This means that your cognitive function (long and short-term memory) is seriously damaged. If you don’t sleep enough, you won’t be able to focus, or study or do anything else. Even the simplest things in your life can be hard for you, if you don’t sleep enough. And the worst part about this is that sleep deprivation has been related to serious health problems, such as: obesity, diabetes and cancer.
And, when you get a full night’s sleep, you’ll feel much better, function better and prevent disease by getting, at least, eight hours of sleep each night. Can I ask you a simple question – would you like to learn a simple trick which will help you sleep like a baby? Well, if your answer is yes, then you should definitely read the article below and learn how to make this delicious and super healthy banana-cinnamon tea.
About the Ingredients:
- Bananas are rich in potassium and magnesium, but what most people do not know is that the banana peel has, even more, potassium and magnesium than the banana itself, and it is often thrown away as trash. With this simple recipe, you can get the benefits of the potassium and magnesium in the banana peel. Potassium and magnesium are beneficial for the nervous system and are great for relaxing the muscles. In fact, magnesium is the most important mineral for muscle relaxation and can reduce muscle cramps along with other aches and pains. When you are stressed, guess which mineral is depleted from the body first? And yes, you’re right – it’s magnesium. You need magnesium to cope with stress, allowing you to relax and fall asleep.
- And, when it comes to cinnamon, you should know that this spice is great because it is one of the best ways to balance blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are balanced, your hormones can function in a way that allows for better sleep. If your blood sugar levels are off, then you may have energy at night, or be tired during the day. Utilizing the therapeutic value of the banana, the banana peel and cinnamon is a great approach to kicking insomnia and other sleep disorders to the curb — for good.
You’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 organic banana (with peel)
- 1 small pot of water
- A sprinkle of cinnamon
First, you need to cut off both ends of the banana (top and bottom). Then, you need to put the banana into a pot of bowling water. If the water is spring water or purified in some way, even better! Boil the banana for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle some cinnamon into the water as well. If you’d like to add some stevia for sweetening, do so. Stevia helps to balance blood sugar levels, and will not spike blood sugar levels before bed. Note: you can add more cinnamon if desired and enjoy!
Or, you can also peel and eat a boiled banana with cinnamon sprinkled on it the next day if you’d like. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank you and have a good one!
