    Re: Benefits of Banana

    here are some more benefits of banana,

    1. Bananas are fruits that are high in fibre, making them an ideal remedy for constipation and an alternative to chemical laxatives.

    2. Bananas are considered to be a natural solution to hangovers. A banana milkshake mixed with honey will help to calm the stomach and build up depleted blood sugar levels at the same time.

    3. Bananas can act as a natural antacid. This gives relief to a person who is suffering from heartburn.

    4. Bananas are an ideal diet for people who are trying to quit smoking. This is because of the combination of Vitamin C, A1, B6, and B12 that helps the body to recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

    5. Due to the high level of potassium in them, bananas are considered to be an excellent snack when a person is highly stressed or is working late at the office. This is because potassium helps to normalise the heartbeat sending oxygen to the brain. Increased metabolic rates during stress reduce our potassium levels. Bananas help to replenish them.

    6. Bananas are an ideal fruit to be eaten when a person is suffering from ulcers. This is due to the soft texture of the fruit which makes it easily digestible, combined with its ability to neutralise acidity.

    Re: Benefits of Banana

    Bananas are good for babies, too. They are in fact often the first solid food given to infants. Bananas are easy to digest because they have no fat and very few babies are allergic to bananas. They are also one of children's favorite snack because of their taste and they meet the energy needs of the growing children.

    Re: Benefits of Banana

    Banana is a natural source of potassium. Potassium is important to the human body, because it helps maintain the body's cells of body fluid and electrolyte balance, and help regulate blood pressure. Higher levels of potassium in the body can reduce the likelihood of stroke.

    Bananas consist mainly of sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose) and fiber, which makes them ideal for an immediate and slightly prolonged source of energy. There are thousand of great benefits of banana, we are discusing some of them here -

    1. Reducing Depression - Bananas contain tryptophan, an amino acid that can be converted to serotonin, leading to improved mood
    2. Anemia - Bananas are relatively high in iron, which helps the body's hemoglobin function

Eyesight Protection - Archives of Ophthalmology has proven that adults consuming at least 3 servings of fruit per day have a reduced risk (by 36%) of developing age-related muscular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily.
