Millions of Americans struggled to get enough sleep each night. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one out of five people has some type of sleep disorder or sleep deprivation. Unfortunately, the majority of us do not get the seven to eight hours of sleep that doctors recommend.
When you suffer from insomnia, it seems like nothing seems to help. You quit drinking coffee and tea, but you still cannot fall asleep. Some people give up medications or try sleeping pills to fall asleep at night. When nothing seems to work, it can be incredibly frustrating. Instead of dreaming peacefully, you are left staring at the ceiling as you grow increasingly annoyed.
It turns out that the remedy for insomnia is even easier than most people realize. All it takes is a cup of banana tea, and you can fall asleep naturally. Best of all, this simple remedy can be easily made at home.
Most people are already aware of the health benefits of bananas. They are rich in potassium, which is good for your heart and muscles. It turns out that this amazing fruit is also filled with magnesium. Your body normally uses magnesium to regulate its circadian rhythms. These rhythms are basically how your body decides when to go to sleep and when to wake up.
Interestingly, the banana peel is even higher in both of these minerals than the actual banana. The only problem is that no one wants to eat a tough peel. Luckily, you can still enjoy all of these minerals without having to gnaw on a banana peel.
