We all happen to have difficulties falling asleep at times, and our modern lifestyle imposes so much stress that we are constantly tired and do not get proper rest. Our computers, cell phones, and other electronic gadgets with their electromagnetic frequencies contribute to this condition. Their bright lights and various other influences also affect our sleep hormones and nervous system, thus reducing the quality of our sleep.
The brain, nervous system, and hormones may be affected by various internal and external factors, which deprive you of or greatly reduce your sleep. Many of use choose the easiest solution to the problem and start using sleeping pills.
Although these medications may provide some short-term effects, in the long term, they seriously harm your health and cause various side-effects like stomach pain, constipation, dizziness, memory issues, difficulty focusing, and damage to the central nervous system.
Undoubtedly, sleep is essential for our health, so sleep deprivation may seriously reduce the body functions, and decrease the motor skill, reduce energy, impair cognitive thinking, and increase the risk of various ailments like diabetes, obesity, and cancer. On the other hand, a good night sleep of at least 8 hours will significantly improve your health and prevent various diseases.
In order to avoid sleeping pills and their adverse effects, you should try a natural remedy to help you get the rest you need: banana cinnamon tea.
This powerful recipe combines the health benefits of bananas and cinnamon. Bananas are rich in magnesium and potassium and the peel includes these minerals in even higher amounts.
