                        Health Benefits Of Taking Banana Tea

    Banana Tea

    Bananas are highly nutritious, have a wonderful sweet taste, and serve as the main ingredient in many recipes. Bananas are even used to make a relaxing tea.

    Banana tea is made by boiling a whole banana in hot water, then removing it, and drinking the remaining liquid. It can be made with or without the peel, depending on your preferences. If it’s made with the peel, it’s usually referred to as banana peel tea. Because banana peel tea takes longer to make due to its high fibre content, many people choose to omit the peel.

    What’s special about banana peel tea?

    When taken about an hour before bed, banana tea can help calm the nervous system and help the body prepare for deep sleep. That’s because banana peels contain potassium and magnesium, which are both natural muscle relaxants. Most people drink this banana-infused tea with a dash of cinnamon or honey to improve its flavour. Finally, it’s most commonly enjoyed at night to aid sleep.

    Banana tea may be a good source of vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and copper. Yet, each batch may contain varying amounts of nutrients due to differences in preparation method and brewing time.

    Health benefits of banana tea

    1. May promote sleep

    Banana tea has become a popular sleep aid. It contains three main nutrients that many people claim to help improve sleep — potassium, magnesium, and tryptophan.

    Bananas are a good source of magnesium and potassium, two minerals that have been linked to better sleep quality and length due to their muscle-relaxing properties

    2. Low in sugar

    Banana tea may be a good replacement for sugary beverages.

    Only a small amount of the sugar in bananas is released into the water during brewing, acting as a natural sweetener for your tea.

    How to make banana tea

    Banana tea is very easy to prepare and can be made with or without the peel.

    Banana tea without the peel

    1.      Fill a pot with 2–3 cups (500–750 ml) of water and bring it to a boil.

    2.      Peel one banana and slice off both ends.

    3.      Add the banana to the boiling water.

    4.      Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for 5–10 minutes.

    5.      Add cinnamon or honey (optional).

    6.      Remove the banana and divide the remaining liquid into 2–3 cups.

    Banana peel tea

    1.      Fill a pot with 2–3 cups (500–750 ml) of water and bring it to a boil.

    2.      Gently rinse a whole banana under running water to remove dirt and debris.

    3.      Leaving the peel on, slice off both ends.

    4.      Add the banana to the boiling water.

    5.      Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for 15–20 minutes.

    6.      Add cinnamon or honey (optional).

    7.      Remove the banana and divide the remaining liquid into 2–3 cups.

    If you’re enjoying the tea by yourself, store any leftovers in your refrigerator and drink them within 1–2 days, cold or reheated. To avoid waste, use the leftover banana in other recipes, such as for smoothies, oatmeal, or banana bread.
