New studies have shown that a huge number of people suffer from insomnia. About 50-70 million Americans experience sleep disorders or poor sleep. That is why many people are tired and nervous.
If you suffer from insomnia there is a natural solution which will help you to relax.
You have probably eaten bananas many times, but have you ever tried a banana tea?
When combined with other natural products which help in falling asleep, it becomes even more effective.
Banana is a rich source of potassium and magnesium, minerals which improve the quality of our sleep. Potassium relaxes muscles and prepares our body for sleep. Banana also contains tryptophan which increases the level of serotonin in our body, which is responsible for a good sleep.
The other ingredient in this tea is cinnamon, which contains wonderful essential oils, such as eugenol. Eugenol is from the class of phenylpropanoids and gives cinnamon sweet taste and aromatic scent. It also contains vitamin A, pantothenic acid, niacin and pyridoxine.
