If you have hard time falling asleep, it’s probably because of experiencing excessive stress.
This modern living makes us feel constantly tired and exhausted. Computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices are also one of the reasons which affect the quality of our sleep.
Many people believe that the only solution to sleep disorders is taking sleeping pills. They can be a temporal solution, but if they are used for longer period of time, they can cause side effects. Stomach pain, constipation, dizziness, memory problems, difficulty concentrating are one of the health complications which occur as a result of long-term use of sleeping pills.
Getting enough sleep is very important. Lack of sleep leads to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, and obesity.
So, try this natural remedy to keep your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. You will only need two ingredients: bananas and cinnamon.
Bananas are high in magnesium and potassium, which are essential nutrients. They relax muscle tension and strengthen your nervous system. Your body needs magnesium, because it prepares it for sleep mode.
Cinnamon regulates your blood sugar levels. It balances your hormone and helps in getting better sleep.
Banana peels also contain health benefits.
- 1 banana (organic, unpeeled)
- A sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1 small pot of water (purified)
How to prepare it?
First, you should cut off the top and the bottom ends of the bananas. In a pot, add some boiling water. Then, add the banana. Let them boil for 10 minutes. After that, add the cinnamon. For even better taste, you can add some Stevia.
That’s it. Your banana-cinnamon drink is ready.
Enjoy its taste!
