Keep in mind, this recipe calls for 100% organic bananas. Bananas that are not organic are loaded with harmful pesticides and since we encourage you to eat the boiled peel, it must be chemical-free.
This tea takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed every night before bed.
What do you need (ingredients):
- 1 organic banana
- 1 small pot of water
- a dash of cinnamon (optional)
All you need to do is cut off both ends of the banana and place it, peel and all, into boiling water.
Boil it for around 10 minutes.
Using a colander, pour the water into a mug. If you’re feeling adventurous, sprinkle the cinnamon into the tea. Drink it one hour before bed time.

If you’re worried about being wasteful, you’ve clearly never had a boiled banana before! After the banana has been boiled, sprinkle some cinnamon over it.
Eating the warm, gooey fruit and its peel along with the tea will increase its soothing effects… Not to mention it makes a yummy dessert!
WHY SLEEPING PILLS ARE BAD
Out of despair, many of us have resorted to sleeping pills and with almost half of the American population suffering from insomnia or poor sleep, it’s no wonder. But here’s the thing: sleeping pills cannot help you long-term. They provide a short-term fix.
The majority of sleeping pills are a specific type of drug that induces and maintains sleep.
They’re classified as something called sedative hypnotics. Among other sedative hypnotic drugs are benzodiazepines and barbiturates. Benzodiazepines—like Xanax and Valium—can be addictive and are used to treat anxiety disorders by increasing drowsiness.
Barbiturates depress the central nervous system are used as anesthetics and sedatives.
As with all drugs, there’s a list of side effects that accompany sleeping pills. Aside from the likeliness of them being habit-forming, they can cause the following:
- Difficulty focusing and remembering
- Stomach pain
- Uncontrollable shaking
- Parasomnias (Doing things without realizing it… Scary!)
Sleeping pills also cause your breathing rhythm to slow down and significantly lighten. This means that if you’re already suffering from lung diseases like COPD or even asthma, these medications can be dangerous and even fatal.
