6 reason why you should choose banana as your favorite

Spread the love

Yes, bananas are pretty amazing, because—in addition to being one of the most portable snacks on the planet—they have dozens of health benefits. Actually, the riper the banana, the more nutrients it has,

Here are 6 health benefits of bananas and why you should totally be eating them more often.

6 Bananas May Protect Against Chronic Disease

Bananas have lots of beta-carotene and alpha-carotene, which are two provitamin A carotenoids that can help with vitamin A deficiency, according to msn!. Recent studies have shown that carotenoid-rich foods can help protect against certain cancer (like kidney cancer), cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

5 Bananas Could Help Strengthen Your Blood And Speed Up Your Metabolism

Bananas are packed with iron, which is necessary to prevent anemia, according to health&fitness!. But iron is also critical for weight loss, because without it your body will try to conserve energy by slowing your metabolism and holding onto those extra pounds that you’ve been fighting to lose.

4 They Can Keep You From Bloating

According to food.ndtv.com!, women who ate bananas twice daily as a snack before a meal for 60 days found that their belly bloat was reduced by 50 percent. That’s because bananas activate the production of those helpful gut bacteria, but also because bananas contain potassium, which can moderate fluid retention.

3 They’re Great For Athletes

A 2012 study found that distance cyclists who ate about one half of a banana every 15 minutes of a three-hour race had the same steady energy levels as those who drank a processed sports beverage to get carbohydrates and minerals, according to The World’s Healthiest food. The level of potassium in bananas also helps reduce muscle cramps.

2 They Burn Fat

A banana contains 12 milligrams of choline, which is a B vitamin that helps burn fat. It also interacts directly with genes that cause your abdomen to store fat, according to everydayhealth.com!. This is the same reason that heavy alcohol drinkers develop a “beer belly”—alcohol depletes choline, and that then causes weight gain around the liver area. Now that’s b-a-n-a-n-a-s.

1 Bananas Are Great For Digestion

Bananas contain pectin, which can help eliminate toxins and metals from the body, says Food Matters. But bananas are also a probiotic, so they help friendly bacteria grow in your bowels and promote benefiting nutrient absorption.

How much banana is not too much? Like a dozen or 6-7 is the upper limit?

I do love bananas because of how fulfilling they are, definitely a reliable option! Although, kiwis are slowly starting to take my favourite spot, the health benefits are endless.
