Boil Bananas Before Bed, Drink The Liquid And You Will Not Believe What Happens To Your Sleep!
If you’re looking for a bedtime tea which both tastes good and helps you sleep, then this banana tea might just be what you need. Stress, anxiety, late night eating, certain medications, blood pressure pills, pain killers and frequent use of mobile phones can lead to insomnia and sleeping disorders. Although some off-the-counter medications help you fall asleep easily, they can trigger off long-term health complications.
Bananas are rich in potassium and magnesium, but what most people do not know is that the banana peel has, even more, potassium and magnesium than the banana itself. While magnesium helps prevent sleep disturbances, both magnesium and potassium work together to help relax muscles.
IMPORTANT NOTE : YOU WILL ENSURE THAT YOU USE ONLY ORGANIC BANANAS AS THE GMO (GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS) ONES HAVE CHEMICALS SUCH AS PESTICIDES ON THEIR PEEL THAT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO RINSE OFF AND YOU WILL NEED THE BANANA PEEL FOR THIS RECIPE.
HOW DO YOU TELL IF BANANA IS ORGANIC? IT’S EASY TO FIND OUT – SIMPLY READ THE STICKER!
The labels on fruits and veggies will have a 4 or 5 digit code. If it has 5 digits, and begins with a 9, it means that the produce was organically grown. If your produce has 4 digits, it means that it was “conventionally grown, but not organic”.
BANANA TEA RECIPE:
1 organic banana (with peel)
1 small pot of water
a dash of cinnamon (optional)
All you need to do is cut off both ends of the banana and place it, peel and all, into boiling water. Boil it for around 10 minutes and then strain the water into a mug. Sprinkle some cinnamon if you want to. Drink it one hour before bed time.
