Sleeping has a huge impact on your overall health. Getting a decent sleep is of utmost importance, because it boosts both your mental and physical health.
Your brain takes its time while you sleep to process your activities, and recharge “its batteries.” A good night’s sleep improves your concentration, “cleans” the brain, and strengthens the system.
Insufficient sleep is often a result of poor dietary habits, anxiety, mineral deficiencies, and lifestyle habits. The lack of sleep affects energy, and leads to depression, weakness, sickness, and hypertension.
Statistics shows that over 50 million Americans deal with sleeping disorders. That’s why everyone feels so tired and irritated.
Luckily, nature is on your side, and you can use a simple natural remedy to get your sleeping in order. All you need is fresh bananas and cinnamon. The aromatic tea will set you straight in a sleeping mode.
Bananas are packed with potassium and magnesium. These minerals are essential for your sleeping, they relax your muscles and veins, and “wipe out” excess cortisol. Tryptophan in bananas increases serotonin levels, and thus regulate your sleeping patterns.
Cinnamon contains eugenol and other essential oils that give its pleasant fragrance. It is also rich in vitamin A, pantothenic acid, niacin, and pyridoxine. The aromatic spice does wonders to your health, and relaxes both your body and mind. It enhances digestion, and boosts circulation.
