Sleep used to be so easy. Lack of sleep has been shown to have many negative effects on the body. You need sleep for your body to heal.
If for some reason you’ve been experiencing difficulty falling asleep whether it’d be because of medication or you just can’t seem to get off your phone, then this banana tea might just be what you need.
Banana peels are jam-packed with potassium and magnesium. Both minerals help relax your muscles, especially magnesium, which is well-known for being the “most relaxing mineral” in the body.
Make sure you use 100% organic bananas for this recipe. Conventional bananas are loaded with harmful pesticides, which you’ll want to avoid.
1 organic banana
1 small pot of water
a dash of cinnamon (optional)
Cut off both ends of the banana and place it into boiling water. Let it boil for around 10 minutes. Using a colander, pour the water into a mug. Sprinkle the cinnamon into the tea. Drink it one hour before going to sleep.
You can eat the boiled banana to not be wasteful.
