You’ve tried all the tricks in the trade to fall asleep and stay asleep. Investments in pillow sprays, trying out new meditation rituals, breathing exercises and more. Many of these may take some trial and error and extra effort. But we have one easy and natural sleep remedy that you may not have heard of yet.
Introducing, the banana hot drink
Here’s how to make it:
- Wash the entire banana (including the peel)
- Cut into 1 inch-thick chunks.
- In a large cup or bowl, add boiling hot water to the banana chunks.
- Let it sit for 3-5 minutes, and enjoy.
Why it works:
We all know that bananas are a rich source of magnesium, a reliable and popular sleep aid. Magnesium regulates neurotransmitters and cues your body and mind to relax. Banana peel actually has 3 times more magnesium than the banana itself. So letting it seep in water will allow the peel to release all of its sleep-inducing goodness.
