Better Than That Sleeping Pill – Banana Cinnamon Tea Recipe For Deep Sleep

Have trouble getting a good night’s rest? We all do at times. With the stressors in our modern environment, it can become difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling rested. Stress and electromagnetic frequencies from cell phones, computers, and other electronics play a role. Bright lights and so many other factors can effect our nervous system and sleep hormones, which ultimately influence our quality of sleep.

Many different factors, both external and internal, can influence your brain, hormones and nervous system which can offset your sleep or deprive us of quality sleep.

The easiest thing to do is to grab a sleeping pill, but is that a good solution? It may work short-term, but in the long term, you are hindering your body’s health and natural abilities.

Sleeping pills have known side effects such as dizziness, constipation, stomach pain, difficulty focusing, memory problems and harm to the central nervous system.

Sleep is extremely important, and there’s no arguing that. When you are deprived of sleep, you lose out on what your body can do to function optimally. Your cognitive thinking skills are impaired, your motor skills decline, your energy drops, and you’re at even more risk for diseases and health conditions such as obesity, diabetes and cancer.

You need a full night’s sleep. You’ll feel better, function better and prevent disease by getting, at least, eight hours of sleep each night. You do not want the side effects that sleeping pills offer, so what can you do? Enter banana cinnamon tea.

Bananas are rich in potassium and magnesium, but what most people do not know is that the banana peel has, even more, potassium and magnesium than the banana itself, and it is often thrown away as trash. Not anymore!

With this simple recipe, you can get the benefits of the potassium and magnesium in the banana peel. Potassium and magnesium are beneficial for the nervous system and are great for relaxing the muscles. In fact, magnesium is the most important mineral for muscle relaxation and can reduce muscle cramps along with other aches and pains.

When you are stressed, guess which mineral is depleted from the body first? You guessed it! Magnesium. You need magnesium to cope with stress, allowing you to relax and fall asleep.

Cinnamon is great because it is one of the best ways to balance blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are balanced, your hormones can function in a way that allows for better sleep. If your blood sugar levels are off, then you may have energy at night, or be tired during the day.

Utilizing the therapeutic value of the banana, the banana peel and cinnamon is a great approach to kicking insomnia and other sleep disorders to the curb — for good.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 organic banana (with peel)
  • 1 small pot of water
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon (if you’d like)

Step 1: Simply cut off both ends of the banana (top and bottom) as shown below:

Step 2: Put the banana into a pot of bowling water. If the water is spring water or purified in some way, even better!

boil-banana-tea

Boil for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle some cinnamon into the water as well. If you’d like to add some stevia for sweetening, do so. Stevia helps to balance blood sugar levels, and will not spike blood sugar levels before bed.

Step 3: Add more cinnamon if desired and enjoy!

As another option, you can also peel and eat a boiled banana with cinnamon sprinkled on it the next day if you’d like! (I’d recommend the next day because you do not want to put food in your gut to digest right before bedtime).

To a great night’s rest, naturally!

Is it saying you should drink the tea art night then eat the banana the next day? If so how do you store the banana over night without destroying the nutrients?

    Av Aaron - May 4, 2016

    Magnesium and pottasium are the main components in the banana. Once you boil the banana, all the organic compounds will break down for sure. There is no way to restrain the nutrients on the banana.

I was skeptical about this. I have an autoimmune so I’ve tried countless ‘alternative’ remedies and, surprise, none of them work. I was hoping I could at least get a decent nights sleep but of course not. I tried this ridiculous concoction 3 nights in a row…nada. I get so damned tired of this alternative medicine, home remedy, snake oil bullshit. You should all be categorized as faith healers. You all do NOTHING and prey on the desperate. Yes, this is just a banana tea but from the looks of things above, you’re just as bad as the lying evangelist preachers.

    Hi Jennifer Stuckey! I KNOW you DO NOT want to hear yet another “remedy” but……there have been SO MANY people helped with a plant based diet. I have nothing to sell you or anything to gain by reaching out to you, but I sense such a frustration and hopelessness in regards to your situation that I just couldn’t help but reach out to you. You can find me on Facebook at Tina Woodburn Girton if you have any questions. :)

      You’re right Tina, I am sick of it. I’ve also spoken to my doctor in the past about such a diet and he warned me against it for reasons applicable to my situation. There is no one fix cure all and I suggest you figure that one out and understand that sometimes good intentions can actually cause more harm than good. I now only listen to medical doctors. The rest of the snake oil salesman can just evaporate.

        You know, you should really have a taste of your own comment and understand that just as these rememdies didn’t work for you, they DO work for many of us. I drink tea every night before going to bed and it has helped with my night terrors and sleep paralysis. Most of us get our ‘snake oil salesman’ solutions FROM our doctors–various ones. Your response to Tina was VERY rude. I don’t care how ‘done’ you are with home remedies, don’t shit on someone else’s parade and be an ass about it when they were only trying to be helpful. Yes, you can take only your doctor’s advice, but there was a MUCH better, nicer way of letting Tina know her comment didn’t pertain to your life than shutting her up and insulting her. Sounds like you need much more than a doctor’s advice for the stick shoved clear up your ass….

          Yeah its very clear by the tone of her posts that “alternative medicine” isn’t her real problem, it’s her mentality. I’ve had medical doctors shrug their shoulders at me basically telling me “We don’t know what to do for you” and send me home with drugs, that didn’t actually help me. Years went by in the medical system with no relief, finally I tried a chinese herbalist that a friend recommended and the majority of my symptoms are GONE.
          Any of my friends that I have recommended to her also have said the same thing about her herbal treatments. To each their own ;)

          Kudos Stefani! Very well said. JS sure has something up her ass and feels the need to make the rest of the world pay for her suffering. I am totally the opposite. I do my own research and don’t trust (most) medical doctors as far as I can throw them. I believe all remedies have always been right here in nature for us to find. The sad thing is, if they can’t recreate it synthetically, they throw the info away as if it doesn’t exist. And if it doesn’t cost much money….whoa Nelly! They MUST get rid of it!! :) Thank you for sticking up for Tina’s deserved respect.

Heaven forbid, don’t forget your yearly mammogram that causes cancer, and be sure to sign up for chemo aka chemical nitrogen mustard gas (our allies used on Hitler’s merry band of Nazis in WWII) to treat it. When your hair falls out and you’re oozing in sores, some will call you courageous, but not me. I’ll say, someone tried to help your stupid ass.

          While some natural remedies may work, the majority of them are probably bullshit. The placebo effect is an issue, which migth explain why many people claim random stuff to magically work only because they believe it will. I’m not saying that accounts for all natural medicine. And a plant based diet may definitely be healthy. But I doubt if there’s proper evidence for healing power of a boiled banana with some cinnamon.

        Jennifer Stuckey, as someone who had autoimmune issues for 7 years and chronic sleep issues, I would love to invite you to look into the metaphysical reasons for illness. Usually autoimmune disease is related to not living your life fully, and preventing yourself from expressing yourself creatively. It becomes a viscious cycle because you feel too ill to do anything but you have to get yourself out of the cycle. See where you’re not being truly authentic in your life, not speaking up for yourself, and not making the decisions YOU want to make in life. Autoimmune is a gift to push you into an AWAKE life. I wish you the best, and I have much faith that you have it in you to heal. My heart is with you.

    the problem isn’t alt medicine, the problem is your lack of understanding health in general. to think that 1 boiled banana will cure your auto-immune disease which is most likely causing you sleeping problems is ridiculous.. my son HAD autoimmune problems until we clean out all the food causing the toxicity in the first place leaving us to go organic everything.. we then seeked help from a alt doctor to see what deficiencies and toxicity remained.. which then we introduced routine detox and adjusted the diet accordingly.. so we pretty much had to change our whole lifestyle and perception of what medicine and good health was.. my sons auto immune problems were a blessing in disguise.. cause we now lead a healthy happy life with no sleeping disorders or disease in general.. simply based on research and educating ourselves across the spectrum of health…being able to understand the science gave us the ability to distinguish between whats bullshit and whats true.. bringing me back to my point… if you don’t understand the epigenetics, cellular biology, chemistry or the nutritional science..you are unqualified to judge or make such remarks.. I’m pretty sure if we give my son boiled banana tea tonight he will sleep even better simply because we addressed the underlying issues.. your ignorance is the problem here not alt medicine..

      Thank you!!!!!!!! You cannot put exercise a bad diet or really out do anything when your diet and lifestyle habits just keep enduring reverting back to its awful state. You have to completely change even if it’s a few things here and there until you look back and realized you have truly done am overhaul on your lifestyle. Or bodies are able to heal themselves, but they need the right tools and all the unnatural stuff we put in them not only doesn’t give them the right tools, but hinders what little the body can try to accomplish without those tools.

        you are absolutely right .. you must change your whole lifestyle .. mind body and soul. i suggest you see a functional medicine doctor or a advanced medicine doctor as opposed to your traditional doctor.. cause they will look at hormonal imbalances, deficiencies ,toxicity and epigenetics .. then from that information they will taylor make you a healthcare plan and approach catered to your unique health care needs which address the underlying causes and problems .. by reverse engineering it.. and all this is scientifically proven.. as for traditional medicine which is also a scientifically proven, sadly it is a one size fits all approach to only address symptoms, not the root cause of the problems. at the end of the day patented drugs are a commodity driven product under institutions controlled by shareholders and there insatiable need for monetary gain, so what sort of healthcare should we expect.. there are no surprises here just common sense and something to keep in mind before you put your life in the hands of a institutionalised, one dimensional doctor, getting kick backs from big pharma.. i say this with all due respect to traditional doctors who have good intentions, an open mind for healthcare and really do want to help people..

          “only scientific facts, please” We could all say the same to you. A few have provided you with facts and science, but they are not “your” idea of facts and science (i.e made up) It is fine to lie to yourself, but don’t lie to everyone else. Your half arsed notions are not scientific, you wouldn’t know science if it came up and slapped you. Everybody with a brain knows auto-immune cannot be cured. You could be seriously harming someone by spreading this bullshit. You should be ashamed. Do you know how many people die due to quack therapies? Especially in poorer countries. It is sickening, that in this age of science, we are still sacrificing goats, building shrines and doing rituals, in hope that the gods heal us. Alt medicine is dangerous and you as an advocate either knowingly or unknowingly (knowingly, if you are as smart as you tel us you are) you are harming people, by telling them that quack cures will help. You make me so fucking sick, you are no different to the Religious people who stop their kids getting real medical help “if god doesn’t want him dead, then he will be healed” In my mind, you and people like that are exactly the same.

Can you point at that? Or perhaps you want to learn how to read? As far as evidence I posted it, you rather jump the gun than read. The common banana, the cavendish, was destroyed by a desease in the 60s. Not a single original plant remains, all the cavendish banana you buy and eat with an organic label have been genetically modified in the 70s to resist that disease. Just because the genetic modification was done 40 years ago rather than this year it still doesn’t make it organic. The common banana is not organic, doesn’t matter what the label says, or where it’s grown. And since you called science into the debate, I am a scientist by education, I only believe facts. Learn how to live in society before attacking other people for your lack of reading or understanding skills.

          lol.. oohh!! now its the common banana that’s not organic.. didn’t you say “there is no such thing as a organic banana no matter what the label says” ? maybe its because you realised theres over a thousand different varieties of bananas, and your talking about 1…or maybe your so stubborn.. you will never admit when you are wrong… which is unscientific… now i could leave it at that.. but since you question my intellect its only right i question yours.. i find it hard to believe that a scientifically conscious person is capable of writing such a fundamentally flawed response to say the least.. the very fact that you state your claims without any scientific literature to back it, or links to scientific evidence showing these events happening.. leaves me to question your integrity.. the audacity to call me out for making assumptions about you, which were a response to your assumptions about me, caring whether bananas are organic or not..especially its irrelevance to my original post.. in other words there is no where in my original post me asking you whether bananas are organic or not.. but yet here you are criticizing my lack of reading and comprehension skills.. hypocrisy is a disease, i suggest you you use your own advice on yourself to get you out of denial..

          You just love to freaking argue. 90% of the bananas in the grocery stores are cavendish so when I said banana I meant the most common. Go get a life now.

          I wouldn’t bother arguing with him/her. They are an Alt medicine advocate, so all that talk of “science, knowledge” is a red herring. Apparently you need to be an expert to discuss medicine on the internet. :” if you don’t understand the epigenetics, cellular biology, chemistry…” this is coming from a person who thinks you can “cure auto immune diseases!” She throws around words like “epigenetics” when she has no idea what it means.She is a fraud and a time waster. Do not engage.

All they can do is try to fight back. It will not work anymore they are in a losing battle . More and more people are tired of illness and are becoming educated to our chemical laden GMO sorry excuse for food. Also of the nasty synthetic meds that treat an ailment but has potential side affects of cancer or worse yet DEATH! They will lose this battle eventually.

          Technically organic means that there are no pesticides involved as well as no genetic modification. But these days I’m happy to get something that still tastes like the original thing. Living in the US for 20 years I’m sad that the food sucks and is mostly tasteless, I go to Italy 2 or 3 times a year and I can have real food. Even chicken tastes completely different in Italy. You know the saying “tastes like chicken” meaning that is flavorless or just… blah… well, that doesn’t apply in Italy, chicken is very flavorful. And my grandparents used to raise chicken, the one raised at home has the same taste of the one you buy in a shop. There’s something really wrong with the food in the States.

          Apple banana are a totally different plant. I’m talking (once again, not the first time I say it) about Cavendish, the most common banana, the one you find in all stores all the time. I’m not talking about Apple banana, I’m not talking about plantains, I’m not talking about zucchini, or walnuts or oranges. Cavendish! The one that is commonly referred as “banana” only.

          Please excuse me. I can not find where you reference the type of banana you are referring to. “I’m talking (once again, not the first time I say it) about Cavendish, the most common banana, the one you find in all stores all the time.” You speak of the “common” or “banana’ as if what is in your world is the only option to the conversation? My word. the statement: “Well, there’s no such a thing as organic banana, doesn’t matter what the label says.” does not specify the type.It is all inclusive in the structure of the sentence. According to your statement it doesn’t matter what the label says.

I’m not surprised the original post deleted. but I’m am surprised you could form an opinion without the other side of the argument. but then again your trolling has no need for rationality…closed minded people need not apply.. in other-words your response was unnecessary.. my words and how they are perceived are in different dimensions.. so your perception or opinion has no effect on my intentions.. my intentions being.. when it comes to health I prefer a discussion based on scientific facts over a discussion based on opinion.. we are talking about life here not art.. only a fool would treat healthcare like a game..

Now, milk, spinach, mustard, catsup, ad infinitum. 1 of 8 women get breast cancer from genetics. The others are environmental. The common denominator is our food supply and what we breathe.

      You are one of those individuals who believes that one single case determines everything. If a single man jumped out of a plane at a cruising altitude of 15,000 feet and lived, you would assume that based off THIS ONE INSTANCE that the laws of physics must be bullshit. I’m sorry your kid had AIDs, but let’s be real, food doesn’t cure aids nor would it fucking cure alzheimers. Only a fool would believe that. The biggest fool here is you, however. He did not state in the article that some tea can cure any problem already inflicted. He merely stated that it’s chemical make up can reduce the chances of future problems and help people with sleeping disorders get to sleep. Learn to read with your eyes and not your ass.

    I don’t think they meant that eating the boiled banana was to help you sleep, but just showing that you don’t have to waste it. If you watched the video of the lady(“Love It, Or Leave It Alone”), she ate it right after boiling it, but the article suggested to NOT eat anything just before bed. I hope this answers your question.

I also have an autoimmune disease and wasn’t able to eat allot of organic nutritious foods for a long time. It’s very frustrating when a healthy salad would set off an immune response and esophagitis so bad I could hardly swallow. Banana’s would be a huge no no. But, I urge those suffering from autoimmune disorders to check into energy medicine practices as well as acupuncture (not a walk in, but a seasoned practitioner who actually schedules appointments and will talk to in depth about your symptoms). Since becoming certified in energy medicine and having used it for a number of years…calming my body at an energy level has made me able to eat foods I would not have been able to years ago. If your body is inflaming because it has become reactive to the point that it begins to attack itself…it makes sense that even healthy food can be seen as a threat also.. Not to mention eating healthy foods boosts your immune system thereby making it stronger to work against you. Calm the body first and you will be able to eat more of the things that will help you in the long run. If anyone is interested or have questions, please feel free to message me on FB. I also highly recommend ‘Donna Eden Energy Medicine,’ it’s an amazing book and resource for those suffering from chronic conditions. :)

No two people’s physical or mental make- up are the same. What works for some may not work for others. That is why in the medical world there is usually more then one medications for the same conditions. Even then for some nothing works at all. Especially those who have negative attitudes due to past experiences. But when someone is trying to help by passing on some positive experiences they have had it doesn’t help anyone to rudely attack that person. All that accomplish was to spread negative feelings among many. My final thought is that it would be in everyone’s benefit if we didn’t put people down for trying to help others. If their advice doesn’t help you just don’t use it.

Want sleep if you are a man? Do you want natural sleep? Get laid. Nature causes a chemical change in the male body which induces sleep.But the female brain walks her up.
For both genders,block out all light especially artificial light created by green or blue face clocks etc. Use a room darkening shade but be aware that you will have problems waking up in the morning. I am able to leave mine open about one foot because I sleep facing the other way and not enough light come through to keep me awake, just enough to wake since I turn over and face that direction by morning.e me up in the morning.
