    Banana Nutrition Facts


    * Vitamin C which is found in bananas, helps the body to defend and heal against infections. This vitamin also proves valuable in the synthesis of the connective tissue, absorption of iron and the formation of blood.

    * Not only are bananas rich in vitamin C, they also contain potassium. Potassium is a mineral that helps in the building of muscles and protein synthesis. This is done as potassium stimulates nerve impulses for muscle contraction.

    * A diet rich in potassium is said to reduce the risk of hypertension and stroke. As bananas are free from sodium and very rich in potassium, they can be included in the diet to reduce the risk of high blood pressure.

    * Bananas contain three natural sugars, sucrose, fructose and glucose, along with fiber. A banana thus gives an instant and substantial boost of energy.

    * A banana contains vitamin B6, which helps in the synthesis of antibodies in the immune system, apart from red blood cell formation, protein metabolism and functioning of the central nervous system.

    * No other fruit contains more digestible carbohydrates than bananas. This is advantageous, because the body burns off calories from carbohydrate more easily and quickly than calories from fat or protein.

    Interesting Facts About Bananas

    The word banana is derived from the Arab word 'banan', which means finger.
    Bananas are harvested green because they keep ripening even after they are picked.

    Unlike most other fruits that grow on trees, bananas grow on plants.

    Brisbane holds the world record for the longest banana split, which measured 4.6 miles or 7.3 kilometers.

    Despite the fact that bananas love a tropical climate, they are grown in Iceland too, by heating the soil with geysers.

    This was all about banana nutrition. So, do not forget to incorporate this very nutritious food in your daily diet and experience the myriad health benefits of this wise fruit
