Our health and well-being are significantly affected by a good winter’s night sleep. Getting enough quality sleep at the right time can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.
Sleep is essential because during it, the brain has enough time to process the energy for daily activities and maintain your physical health. So, sleep improves our ability to concentrate, improves the ability to clean the brain and rejuvenates the body.
On the other hand, poor sleep can be caused by several factors, but the most common causes include poor eating habits, anxiety, lack of minerals, and a way of life. Lack of sleep leads to low energy, depression, weakness, nausea and increased risk of hypertension.
The latest research has pointed out some rather disturbing figures, which show that 50-70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders and poor sleep. It is clear why so many people are irritable and constantly tired.
However, there is a natural way to help yourself in this case. Today we show you how to eat bananas and cinnamon in the form of tea as a bedtime snack to solve your sleeping problems.
These two components are of great benefit to our health and body.
Bananas are a rich source of potassium and magnesium, which are minerals that improve the quality of sleep. These minerals also help the muscles and veins relax and destroy the negative impact of excess cortisol (anxiety). Bananas contain the amino acid – tryptophan, which helps to raise the level of serotonin that helps regulate sleep patterns.
Another ingredient of this recipe, cinnamon, contains remarkable essential oils, such as eugenol, which is a chemical element in the class of phenylpropanoids that gives a sweet, pleasant aromatic odor, as well as vitamin A, pantothenic acid, niacin, and pyridoxine. This spice is also very useful for your health, because it unwinds and relaxes the body. In addition, it helps digestion and blood circulation.
