Sleeping is a vital indicator of our overall health and well-being. Lack of sleep causes weakness, lack of energy and even depression. Sleep deprivation can also have detrimental effects on the health and even cause various diseases. While we are sleeping our mind relaxes in order to get enough energy to be able to go through the day. Sleeping also rejuvenates various systems in the body.
Sleep disorders affect millions of people worldwide. In case you are one of them we have prepared the perfect solution for you. The only thing you need to do is prepare a drink from two ingredients – banana and cinnamon.
Bananas are excellent for promoting good sleep. They are rich in potassium and magnesium which enhance the sleep and improve the sleep quality. These nutrients also reduce the negative impacts caused by excess cortisol and help you sleep better by relaxing your muscles. Cinnamon, on the other hand is tonic that relaxes the body and even stimulates digestion and blood flow.
