Bananas as fruits have a number of health benefits. For one, they aid digestion; eating a banana or two gives great relief from constipation.
Many people are under the mistaken impression that eating bananas might give them a cold. That happens to only those who are allergic to bananas (very few people are). In fact, bananas help one resist a cold.
The best thing about eating a banana is that it immediately boosts your system to give you a ‘feel good’ feeling, increasing your physical and mental energies.

Some are of the impression that bananas make one put on weight. Weighed (forgive the pun) against the health benefits that one gets from eating a banana a day, it makes sense to give up something else of equal calories.

My Mom says Banana is called the Poor and Rich Man's food. It can be affordable to one and all, plus its healthy,filling. It beats the vada pav which the poor claim is affordable for them as food.ReplyDelete
Way healthier, definitely :)Delete
Looks like gold, and sometimes for me, just as valuable. Esp when I get de-energized. :) even love them as banana chips.ReplyDelete

I didn't know that there were over a 1000 varieties of bananas, thanks. The fact that the more ripe it is, the better it can fight to prevent increase of cancerous cells is great.ReplyDelete
