Quality sleep is vital for proper body function. Sleep deprivation, on the other hand, can trigger a number of health issues including hypertension, depression, sickness, weakness, nervousness or low energy levels throughout the day.
What a good night’s sleep provides is complete body and mind relaxation, improved brain function and increased energy levels for the following day.
Poor sleep normally results from an unhealthy diet, inactivity, lack of minerals or anxiety. According to a recent survey, 50-70 million Americans are affected with sleep deprivation and sleeping disorders.
Now, most people turn to sleeping pills when insomnia attacks. However, there’s an equally effective natural solution to this issue and it only includes two easily available ingredients – a banana and cinnamon.
This tropical fruit is abundant in minerals including magnesium and potassium, which are extremely beneficial for improving sleep quality. They also reduce the negative effect of cortisol on the muscles and blood vessels.
Cinnamon also offers a plethora of health benefits. With its pleasant scent, it relaxes and relieves your body along with improving digestion.
