Bananas are super good for you and let’s look at why eating more bananas are a great idea. Everyone is worried about getting too many carbs. Too much sugar and many people think eating bananas is not a “healthy” fruit.  

1.  Bananas are good for your heart because they have a lot of potassium.

2.  Bananas are good for your cholesterol levels.  As they have sterol which blocks the absorption of cholesterol in the body.

3.  Bananas are high in fiber which makes them good for reducing your risk for heart disease.

4.  Bananas are packed with vitamins and minerals and provide lots of energy!

Try and add more bananas to your diet for improved bodies health.  Try adding them to oatmeal.  Eat sliced bananas in Greek Yogurt for a healthy snack or dessert.  And always have fresh bananas at your desk for a quick, energizing snack!

Bananas don’t just look like smiles; they promote them. Bananas  contain vitamin b9, aka folate, a nutrient that may fight depression.  By boosting a substrate that has antidepressant properties.

Besides the mood-boosting B9, bananas also have tryptophan. This is a precursor for serotonin.  And serotonin may be the most important brain chemical.  Serotonin is a natural anti-depressant and can treat, anxiety and insomnia.

As well as other mood issues such as fatigue, irritability, agitation, anger, and aggression. Bananas also have norepinephrine, which regulates our “‘fight or flight response. This helps to regulate stress and keeps your mind balanced

The fruit increases bloat-fighting bacteria in the stomach.  And it’s also good source of potassium, which can help diminish retention of fluids.

Belly bloat makes even the most toned six-packer look like they just downed a six-pack of Coors. Fight back against the gas and water retention with bananas.

One recent study found that women who ate a banana twice daily. As a pre-meal snack for 60 days reduced their belly-bloat by 50 percent!
