Sleep Hates You? Drink This TEA And Make Sleep Fall To You!

Sleep. You either don’t think about it, because it comes easily (lucky you) or you have a love-hate relationship with it.

According to the Institute of Medicine, 50-70 millions Americans suffer from some sort of sleep disorder or poor sleep. That’s a lot of people walking around cranky and tired!

Being awake all night can be dangerous!

Are you one of them?

Sleep is so important to your overall health and wellbeing. Without getting a good night’s rest, you risk poor health, illness, depression, high blood pressure and at the very least, chronic low energy.

Sleep is when your brain has time to “recharge” and process your daily activities. It is also when your body focuses on recovering and rejuvenating your various systems.

Today, you will witness a simple tea recipe to add to your nightly routine that can help you fall asleep and STAY asleep throughout the whole night – and it all starts with bananas and cinnamon!

Why Bananas?

Bananas are a modern day superfood that come with a myriad of health benefits. In terms of helping you get quality sleep, bananas are an excellent source of potassium and magnesium, both of which have been linked to improve sleep in various studies. These minerals help your muscles and blood vessels relax and combat the negative effects of too much cortisol (stress).

Why Cinnamon?

Besides the fact that it adds a nice flavor to the tea, cinnamon is a natural warming tonic that helps to soothe your body and promote relaxation. It also helps with circulation and digestion, which may interfere with good sleep if not flowing properly.
