Bananas are one of the world’s most appealing fruits! Whether alone, in a smoothie or as a topping/ingredient for your fave recipe, bananas are tasty and delicious. A wide variety of health benefits are associated with the curvy yellow fruit! 

Below are the the top food facts for bananas you should know:

Good for your heart

Bananas are good for your heart. They are packed with potassium, a mineral electrolyte that keeps electricity flowing throughout your body, which is required to keep your heart beating. Bananas’ high potassium and low sodium content may also help protect your cardiovascular system against high blood pressure.

Helps overcome depression

Bananas can be helpful in overcoming depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which the body converts to serotonin, the mood-elevating brain neurotransmitter. 

Helps you sleep better

Vitamin B6 (found in Bananas) can help you sleep well, and magnesium helps to relax muscles. Additionally, the tryptophan in bananas is well known for its sleep-inducing properties. 

Good for digestion and weight loss

Bananas are high in fiber, which can help keep you regular. Also, bananas are a great weight loss food because they taste sweet and are filling, which helps curb cravings. 

Provides energy

For boosting energy and electrolytes, bananas can be more effective than sports drinks!  

Good for your vision

Banana contains a small but significant amount of vitamin A, which is essential for protecting your eyes, maintaining normal vision and improving vision at night. Like other fruits, bananas can help prevent macular degeneration, an incurable condition, which blurs central vision.

Helps keep your bones strong

Bananas may not be overflowing with calcium, but they are still helpful in keeping bones strong. Bananas contain an abundance of fructooligosaccharides. These are non digestive carbohydrates that encourage digestive-friendly probiotics and enhance the body’s ability to absorb calcium.

Helps prevent Cancer

Studies suggest that a moderate consumption of bananas may be protective against kidney cancer. Bananas may be helpful in preventing kidney cancer because of their high levels of antioxidant phenolic compounds.

All in all, adding Bananas to your fruit rotation is an excellent way to stay healthy!
