Tip: cooking a banana for 10 minutes may sound strange, but is good for insomnia
Do you have trouble falling asleep? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep anymore? Here is a tip that will help you.
There are countless reasons why you may have trouble falling asleep. There are internal factors such as stress and anxiety, or external factors such as the light from our cell phone, annoying noise, a partner who snores or does not remain silent.
Instead of a doctor and sleeping pills, you can try this natural and healthier method: banana tea.
Magnesium and potassium have a calming effect and help muscles to relax. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for muscle relaxation and also one of the first minerals that the body loses during stressful periods.
Bananas are rich in magnesium and potassium, but the peel of the banana contains more magnesium and potassium than the fruit itself. So, instead of just eating the banana and throwing away the peel, you boil the banana in water!
Wash an organic banana, cut the ends and cook for 10 minutes. It is important to use an organic banana to prevent harmful chemicals. If desired, you can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon for taste. Drink it about an hour before you go to bed.
Whole banana tea is naturally sweetened, which is nice. However, it does contain sugar that can raise blood glucose levels. If you prefer to avoid this you can use the banana peal only. For taste you might want to add some cinnamon.
That’s all! A healthy and natural sleeping drink in just 10 minutes. Certainly, worth a try, or not?
