[ Sleep.]

Difficulty Sleeping ? 
This Banana Tea Recipe Works Wonders
There are nights when one cannot get to sleep. While 
everyone experiences occasional restless nights, if you 
regularly find it hard to get back to sleep within 
15 to 20 minutes, or if you wake up more than two to 
three times per night, your lack of sleep can disrupt your 
daily life, so it is worth addressing. While there are a 
number of natural remedies and herbs to help put you to 
sleep, here's another remedy you can try - in fact, 
it is highly recommended.
Banana Tea for Deep Sleep

This organic, banana-infused sleep remedy works wonders 
and it tastes great too. But, how does it work? Bananas, 
the peels in particular, are loaded with potassium and 
magnesium - two vital nutrients that will help you sleep 
better. While magnesium will help prevent sleep disturbances, 
both nutrients work together to help relax the muscles. 
Note: It is also important to use organic bananas, 
because they are free of harmful pesticides. 
As this recipe requires you to heat the boiled peel, 
non-organic bananas should be avoided.
Here's how: Prepare in under 10 minutes and enjoy 
every night before bed:


1 organic banana
1 small pot of water
Dash of cinnamon (optional)

1. Cut both ends off the banana, then place it, peel 
and all, into boiling water. Let the banana cook for 
around 10 minutes.

2. Use a colander to pour the banana water into a mug. 
If you like, you may sprinkle some cinnamon at this point. 
Drink the tea one hour before bed time. 

3. The left over banana is pretty tasty too. Serve 
it on a plate and dig in - skin included. 
The texture is soft, gooey and very enjoyable. 
How Sleep Deprivation Affects Your Body
When your body doesn't get enough sleep it suffers. 
A lack of sleep affects your mood and your short 
term memory. Processing simple things can become 
challenging and it also affects your emotional response. 
A lack of sleep has also been linked to serious 
health conditions. 

Why Sleeping Pills are Not a Safe Alternative
Almost half of Americans suffer from insomnia or 
inadequate sleep. Yet, while it may be tempting to 
resort to sleeping pills, they cannot address the 
root of the problem. Rather, sleeping pills provide 
a short term fix. Furthermore, those frequently 
prescribed Benzodiazepines, like Xanax and Valium, 
which are used to treat anxiety disorders by increasing 
drowsiness can, unfortunately, be worryingly addictive 
too. In addition, Barbiturates suppress the central 
nervous system and act very much like anaesthetics 
and sedatives. 
As with all drugs, there's a list of side effects that 
accompany sleeping pills. Besides being addictive, they 
can cause constipation, dizziness, a tendency to lose 
focus and memory, stomach pain, weakness, uncontrollable 
shaking and parasombias (doing things without realizing).
