Do you wake up in the morning to do anything or you simply wake up throughout the whole night? If you’re having problems with insomnia, then we might have the perfect solution for you! A banana drink! But why is it so effective?
Banana and cinnamon tea is an ideal drink that will help you fall asleep. The preparation is very fast and easy. It has a delicious flavor and it’s really effective! Bananas contain magnesium and potassium which help the blood flow freely, the muscles to relax and help you fall asleep easily.
Some foods promote the state of the relaxation necessary to fall sleep, while others generate a state of alert which is the opposite to sleep. Banana and cinnamon tea helps us fall asleep easier because it contains an amino acid called tryptophan which our body uses to create the hormones of sleep serotonin and melatonin.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that slows down the neuronal traffic, leading the brain towards a state of rest and in the end promotes sleep. Melatonin supports the balance of the rhythm and in that way fights insomnia.
