We all have nights off and on where we can’t sleep no matter what we try. Some struggle more than others but, in the end, we all have difficulty at some point. While there are many over the counter things to help you sleep, natural things are better for your body. Banana tea is just the answer you have been looking for.
Who Can Banana Tea Help
Banana tea helps those that tend to wake up in the middle of the night to stay asleep. Although, anyone can benefit from the extra vitamins and minerals that the tea contains.
Benefits of Banana Tea
Drinking Banana Tea provides the body with magnesium and potassium from the peel. Both of these essential vitamins help the blood vessels open and muscles relax resulting in better sleep. The banana itself contains tryptophan, iron and calcium all of which will help you to sleep better at night as well.
How to Make Banana Tea
Cut off both ends of the banana. Place it in a pot of (1 liter) boiling water, skin and all. Let it boil about 10 minutes. Remove the banana and filter the tea into your cup and drink.
If you prefer to you can add some cinnamon and/or honey as well. Both of these will add more health benefits of their own if you choose to add them.
Someone said “I drank some of it later, then bottled up the rest of it and put it in the fridge. Highly recommend it. Makes you super drowsy”
Eating the Banana
Many people will also eat the boiled banana (peel and all). The idea of eating a hot banana may seem odd but, it actually intensifies the sweet taste. Eating the banana also gives you higher amounts of the vitamins and minerals that are contained within the bananas versus just drinking the tea.
You can also add cinnamon to the banana slices adding extra health benefits as well.
Banana tea has so many health benefits even if it doesn’t help for your type of insomnia, it is still a great idea to drink it daily. The extra vitamins and minerals may help with so many other things that it is worth adding to your daily routine. If you drink banana tea what benefits have you seen from it?
