Banana;- High Energy Fruit
Did you know that the banana plant belongs to the same family as the lily and the orchid? Unlike its colorful siblings, the banana plant produces a wonderfully sweet and firm fruit.
The health benefits of bananas are numerous. They ease constipation and halt diarrhea, protect our eyesight and promote kidney health.
Sport enthusiasts appreciate the potassium-power delivered by this high energy fruit.
Bananas are one of the best sources of potassium necessary for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. Additionally one banana a day can protect against atherosclerosis.
Many Americans have a high-salt diet which originates from eating prepared meals and chips. High-salt diets cause an increased calcium loss which weakens the bones. The potassium in the bananas counteract this calcium loss and indirectly help to promote bone health. Bananas help to build stronger bones by increasing the absorption of calcium.
Bananas correct another health problem caused by drinking too much coffee or energy drinks, stomach ulcers. Substances in bananas activate the stomach to produce a stronger barrier against stomach acids.
Even if they weren’t so delicious, the health benefits alone would be enough reason to eat more bananas! so eat.................................
