Some people suffer from symptoms of insomnia, forcing them to consume a variety of chemical drugs. Poor sleeping patterns are caused by several factors, such as anxiety, stress, and depression.
Experts advise those who suffer from insomnia to control their psychological condition. Some chemical drugs also can be a supporting factor of insomnia. Drugs for heart, blood pressure, and antihistamines can trigger anxiety and ultimately will lead to insomnia.
In this article, I will give you a unique recipe, Banana Tea, which you can apply to improve your sleep patterns.
Bananas contain potassium and magnesium, which together have a function to control muscle tension. Potassium and magnesium are compounds which are useful for muscle relaxation.
But you must realize that you have to use organic bananas only. Not organic bananas should be avoided because they contain several hazardous pesticides.
Setting up a banana tea only takes a few minutes and should be taken before bed.
How to make:
Cut both ends of the banana and peel. Enter the banana into a pan that has been filled with boiling water. Simmer for a few minutes, and after approximately 10 minutes, pour the water into the cup. You must use a filter. A sprinkling of cinnamon powder could be given according to taste. The right time to drink the banana tea is one hour before bedtime. You can also eat bananas left in the pot. You can sprinkle cinnamon powder on it. Thus you get two benefits at once.
Negative Side of Sleeping Pills
Sleeping pills will only provide a short term solution and will only make you continue to rely on it.
Most sleeping pills are classified as sedative and hypnotics drugs. Some examples are barbiturates and benzodiazepines. Xanax and Valium are two drugs in Benzodiazpeines family which serve to reduce anxiety by increasing drowsiness. While Barbiturates family serve as nervous system depressant and sedative.
They have side effects that can be described as follows:

Even poor sleeping patterns are often associated with diabetes, obesity, and cancer! I hope that by consuming the banana tea you can improve your sleep patterns without the need to use harmful synthetic drugs.
