Banana Tea

A sweet sleep solution


Do you want to get a more restful sleep? If so, you’re not alone.  According to the National Sleep Foundation about 1/3 of adults struggle with getting enough sleep. Meaning that they don’t get the full 7-9 hours of sleep that experts recommend to support overall well-being including mood, mental sharpness and productivity.


One unexpected and natural way to improve sleep is with a cup of banana tea before bed. Besides being easy to make, banana tea also contains the same sleep promoting nutrients found in raw bananas. 


How to Make Banana Tea

Making banana tea is incredibly easy, and you only need two ingredients: banana and water. The preparation process takes only a few minutes. Here are the steps to follow:


1.     Take one washed organic banana and chop off both ends.

2.     Place the banana, with peel into a pot with three cups of water. 

3.     Boil the banana for up five minutes, until banana begins to brown. 

4.     Strain the banana tea and enjoy.


Note: Add cinnamon or honey to taste, if desired.


Health Benefits of Banana Tea

Bananas deliver beneficial nutrients like potassium, magnesium, and Vitamin C, making it a fantastic fruit to include in your diet. They also contain other compounds, including tryptophan and magnesium, which contribute to better sleep. Drinking banana tea may help with:


Getting rid of insomnia: The magnesium, tryptophan, and potassium in bananas can be helpful in relaxing the muscles and promoting a sense of calm, helping you get to sleep faster.

Regulating Blood Pressure: Research shows that consuming potassium (found in bananas) can help regulate blood pressure and promote heart health.

Boosting the Immune System: Banana tea contain antioxidants and Vitamin C, which helps support immunity and fight inflammation.


When to Drink Banana Tea

We recommended drinking banana tea 30 minutes before bed to wind down from the day.
