How Banana Tea & Cinnamon Can Aid Your Night Sleep

Banana Tea & Cinnamon are so good for you! Banana especially is  high in fiber and a variety of other healthy nutrients, including magnesium and potassium.

Bananas are truly incredible fruits — they’re portable, nutritious, and filling, which is more than I can say for lots of other fruits.

When you want to bring a healthy snack in your bag, you’re not going to grab, say, strawberries or peaches. You’ll pick a banana. It’s mess-free and has its own tough wrapper.

Because we all buy them in big bunches, though, the inevitable problem is that we sometimes end up with more bananas than we’re going to eat.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a good night’s sleep every night. A bad night’s sleep is not only incredibly frustrating, it also has an impact on your daily life and can affect your health.

As a result, you may not be able to concentrate, and your mood usually isn’t the greatest. Do you reach for sleeping pills to get a good night’s sleep? That’s not too good, because with banana and cinnamon tea, you’ll doze off before you know it. Below is how banana tea &  cinnamon can aid your sleep.

How Banana Tea & Cinnamon Can Aid Your Night Sleep

Bananas as a sleep aid

Bananas contain the amino acid, tryptophan. This causes production of the chemical serotonin in the brain. Serotonin has a calming and sleep-promoting effect, according to the National Health Service. So, eating a banana before bed will improve your sleep. But did you know that you can also have banana in a cup of tea?

 Banana and cinnamon

All over the world, tea with banana and cinnamon is used as a nightcap. Banana and cinnamon have many health benefits, so you create a drink to promote your sleep quality. Cinnamon promotes healthy digestion and circulation. In addition, banana ensures that your body produces less cortisol – also known as the stress hormone – and the high content of tryptophan ensures that serotonin production in your body increases – so that you fall asleep at night.

 How To Make Banana Tea & Cinnamon

You don’t need any complicated ingredients to make this tea. With just a banana, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 25 milliliters of water you can make a good cup of tea. Now, don’t just throw everything in a glass, but follow these instructions:

  • Cut off the ends of the banana, but do not remove the peel. Then chop the banana into large pieces – still including the peel.
  • Add the banana pieces to a pan and sprinkle the cinnamon on top.
  • Pour the water into the pan and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Did the peel come off the banana? Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Pour the mixture through a sieve and drink the tea twenty minutes before bedtime.
  • Repeat this every night for best results.
  • Sleep tight!
