I just knew there was a good
reason why I like bananas.
Actually, there’s lots
of scientifically evidenced good reasons.
Research has shown that bananas
ß improve digestion
ß are a great low calorie snack food at approx 110 calories for an average size
ß are loaded with vitamin C, antioxidants, potassium and many of the B group vitamins
ß are a mood booster – that’s ‘cos the tryptophan in them is converted to serotonin which is a feel-good neurotransmitter
ß are good for muscles, including the heart – that’s because of the potassium content. Which means they also help with muscle cramps
ß help to neutralise stomach acidity
ß are good for the bones due to their manganese content
ß are good for the eyes – it’s the vitamin A in them
ß are great for dry skin because of the antioxidant and phytochemical content
