Banana's Health Benefits

  • First of all, they taste GREAT. So sweet and creamy. Personally, my favorite fruit!
  • Great source of energy because they're abundant in vitamins and minerals.
  • They're great for your circulatory system, and your heart. Because of the potassium, bananas help the body’s circulatory system deliver oxygen to the brain, which also helps maintain a regular heartbeat and a proper balance of water in the body. 
  • Bananas also make you go. Don't worry, you won't be running to the bathroom. This just means that they help stop constipation because of the fiber. Apples are also great for this.
  • Bananas have a chemical called tryptophan that help you feel happy. That's the same chemical that is in turkey.
  • For women, bananas are great if you're having menstrual cramps because of the vitamin B6.
  • Another reason why this is a great breakfast? If you're hungover, bananas replenish the body's vitamins!
  • They also help pregnant women combat their morning sickness.
  • They also restore a healthy blood glucose level. 
  • For those suffering from a deficiency in iron, bananas help to give your body the iron that it needs.

Bananas do not need to be purchased organic, but check this list for fruits that do!
