Bananas are a good source of fiber and are rich in vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. They help regulate blood pressure and are easy to digest, even by babies. They have no fat and replace essential nutrients lost during exercise. They can control mood and help reduce depression. Rich in iron, bananas help hemoglobin function. They contain a compound that nourishes probiotic bacteria, therefore enhancing digesting ability and protecting from unhealthy bacteria. They also increase the body's ability to absorb calcium, thereby strengthening bones. Bananas are good for kidney health and may reduce the risk of kidney cancer. Bananas can help reduce heartburn and morning sickness, and improve nerve function. They are also very convenient to carry around for a quick snack because they already have a natural wrapper.

Hi

This fruit has been proven to have a number of medicinal benefits, Bananas are a natural source of potassium. Potassium is important for the human body as it helps keep the body fluids and electrolyte balance in body cells and helps in regulating blood pressure.
Bananas pack their share of vitamins. Large-size bananas have high amounts of vitamin A in them. Vitamin A is essential for the development of specialised tissue in the eyes. It is also important for the growth of the skin and soft skeletal tissue

Bananas are also a natural source of iron. The iron found in bananas can help in the creation of haemoglobin, thus making bananas an ideal fruit for people who are suffering from anaemia.Bananas are fruits that are high in fibre, making them an ideal remedy for constipation and an alternative to chemical laxatives.

Neve r, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!

This is interesting. After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again .

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.
