Banana Tea

Banana tea is said to be a natural treatment for insomnia.  I decided I would give it a try.   I cut an unpeeled organic banana into pieces and placed in a small pot of purified water.  I let the banana boil for a few minutes then poured the liquid into a cup.

Banana tea has a pleasant natural sweet taste. The tea did make me feel relaxed but not particularly sleepy.

Bananas are high in magnesium and potassium, two good nutrients for the heart.  I will add banana tea to my list of teas that I  use to decrease anxiety and stress.  But there are better foods and supplements for inducing sleep.
