Have trouble getting a good night’s rest? We all do at times. With the stressors in our modern environment, it can become difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling rested. Stress and electromagnetic frequencies from cell phones, computers, and other electronics play a role. Bright lights and so many other factors can effect our nervous system and sleep hormones, which ultimately influence our quality of sleep.
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.
The easiest thing to do is to grab a sleeping pill, but is that a good solution? It may work short-term, but in the long term, you are hindering your body’s health and natural abilities.
Sleeping pills have known side effects such as dizziness, constipation, stomach pain, difficulty focusing, memory problems and harm to the central nervous system.
Sleep is extremely important, and there’s no arguing 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.
You need a full night’s sleep. You’ll feel better, function better and prevent disease by getting, at least, eight hours of sleep each night. You do not want the side effects that sleeping pills offer, so what can you do? Consume banana cinnamon tea.
Using only a couple items that are likely already in your kitchen, you can whip together a banana tea in no time! This organic, banana-infused sleep remedy works wonders and tastes so good. How does it work? Bananas, especially the peels, are loaded with potassium and magnesium. While magnesium helps prevent sleep disturbances, both magnesium and potassium work together to help relax muscles. In fact, magnesium is one of the best minerals for relaxation! Keep in mind, this recipe calls for 100% organic bananas. Bananas that are not organic are loaded with harmful pesticides and since we encourage you to eat the boiled peel, it must be chemical-free.
This tea takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed every night before bed.
– 1 organic banana
– 1 small pot of water
– a dash of cinnamon (optional)
Here’s what you need to do – just cut off both ends of the banana and put it into boiling water. You need to boil the banana for 10 minutes. Then, pour some of the water into a mug and sprinkle some cinnamon into your banana tea. You should drink this tea 1 hour before you go to sleep.
Don’t worry about wasting your banana, because you can eat it. Have you ever tried boiled banana before? Well, now you can, and you can eat the banana peel as well. Just sprinkle some cinnamon over it and enjoy your warm banana. You will enjoy this delicious and healthy desert.
How sleep deprivation affects the human body
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.
As you can see, lack of sleep can cause some serious health problems for you. And you can stop that just by making this delicious banana tea and drink it 1 hour before you go to sleep. You will sleep like a baby and you will wake up refreshed and full of energy.
