Quality sleep is vital for your overall health – there’s no doubt about that. However, modern hectic lifestyle, which is typically marked by loads of stress, inactivity and unhealthy dietary habits, can seriously affect your sleep quality. If this persists over time, it can lead to a number of health issues ranging from lack of focus to indigestion, hypertension etc.
Although most people resort to sleeping pills or similar over-the-counter products to fight insomnia, there’s no safer and better option than natural remedies. One of the most effective tools for sleep deficiency is the Ayurvedic banana cinnamon tea recipe we recommend here.
Bananas, particularly their peel, are one of the richest fruits in potassium and magnesium. This powerful mineral combination relaxes your muscles thus helping you fall asleep easily. Plus, magnesium prevents sleep disorder too. In fact, it’s one of the best minerals for relaxation! Note Make sure that for this recipe you should be using completely organic bananas, with no pesticide residues.
On the plus side, it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare this sleep-improving drink.
What you need:
- 1 banana
- 1 glass of water
- cinnamon (optional)
What you do:
Start by cutting the ends of the banana. Follow by slicing the banana in pieces. Put everything in a pot, add water and cook for ten minutes. Strain the liquid then add cinnamon to improve the taste and further boost the sleep-improving quality. Drink this one hour before going to bed. The results are extremely beneficial and you’ll soon find your overall health improved.
