This is contributed by our computers, cell phones, and other electronic gadgets with their electromagnetic frequencies contribute to this condition. Our sleep hormones and nervous system are affected by their bright lights and various other influences. Our brain, nervous system and hormones may be affected by different internal and external factors, which deprive you of or greatly reduce your sleep. Some people use sleeping peels.

Actually, these medications provide some short-time effects, and in the long-term they can seriously harm your health and cause stomach pain, constipation, dizziness, memory issues, difficulty focusing, and damage to the central nervous system.

We all know that a good night sleep of at least 8 hours will significantly improve your health and prevent various diseases.

We recommend you to avoid the sleeping peels and to try the following natural remedy – banana and cinnamon tea.

The following recipe is mix by the health benefits of bananas and cinnamon. Bananas are rich in magnesium and potassium and the peel includes these minerals in even higher amounts.

They relax the muscles and support the nervous system. When it comes to muscle relaxation, magnesium is the most important and efficient mineral.  It also alleviates cramps as well as aches and pains.

Magnesium is the first mineral to get depleted from the body in the case of stress, and it is needed to relax the body and prepare it for a proper rest and deep sleep.

By the way, cinnamon effectively balances blood sugar levels, and thus helps your hormones to support better sleep. In the case of an imbalance of the blood sugar levels, you may be too energetic at night, or too tired in the morning.

Therefore, the combination of bananas, their peel, and cinnamon, would be extremely beneficial in the case of insomnia and sleep disorders.

This is how to prepare this tea:


  • 1 organic banana, unpeeled

  • A sprinkle of cinnamon

  • 1 small pot of water(spring or purified, if possible)

How to prepare it:

First you should cut off the top and the bottom ends of the banana.  Then, place it in a pot with some boiling water and boil for 10 minutes. After that, you should add the cinnamon, and you can even enrich the taste with some Stevia. It will regulate the blood sugar levels, and prevent blood sugar spikes during the night.
