Cavendish Are The Main Commercial Bananas Most Of Us Eat.

So last week I came across an article on ways to ‘Banish Your Belly Fat.’ Not eating bananas was on the list of things ‘To Do’ to get a ‘Flat Belly.’ Well now I am about to tell you the complete opposite of what I read. Bananas are a great thing to eat everyday. They are packed with Vitamin C, 3 grams of Fiber, Potassium and Vitamin B6. Easily stored you can take one with you and eat it on the go as a nutritious snack.

Here Are Some More Reasons Why You Should Be Eating Bananas:

-Bananas are loaded with ‘Resistant Starch’ which is a healthy carb that fills you up and helps to speed up your metabolism. A slightly underripe banana has 3x more resistant starch then a ripe one, so go for firm when you need to fill up.

-Bananas also can help lift your mood, they contain tryptophan, an amino acid that can be converted to serotonin, which in turn can lead to a better mood.

-Extremely high in potassium, yet very low in sodium, bananas having a perfect ratio for preventing high blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

-According to a study in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can reduce the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%.

-Bananas are high in potassium, which helps normalize the hearthbeat and regulate the body’s water balance. During periods of high stress, our body’s potassium levels tend to be rapidly depleted: eating bananas is a healthy way to rebalance them without using drugs.

-Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. They contain vitamins B6 and B12 they contain, as well as potassium and magnesium: these substances help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
