Bananas don’t just taste good, their nutritional value is phenomenal. And for that reason, they should be a part of our everyday diet. Consider this...
Tastier than pills
Bananas are a powerhouse of vitamins providing one of the best sources of Vitamin B6. Just one banana can deliver up to half your daily needs. They also are packed with Vitamin C and contain other important B-group vitamins such as folate, niacin, riboflavin and pantothenic acid.
The perfect energy fix
Toss away those energy drinks and grab a banana. Feeling a bit tired in the afternoon? A banana can bring your low blood glucose levels back to normal and give you a natural burst. As a carbohydrate, bananas help to improve your memory, your mood and your productivity. If sport is your passion, always carry bananas with you to ensure you can go the distance. This is the favourite fruit of professional sportspeople for a good reason.
Perfect for diets
With zero fat levels, bananas are perfect for your diet. Blessed with a high satiety index (which means you don’t need to eat too many of them to feel full), once you’ve had one or two bananas, you won’t feel hungry.
Reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer and Alzheimer’s
This wonder fruit is high in potassium and low in salt, perfect for helping to maintain healthy blood pressure. Cancer cells hate plant lectin, of which bananas have plenty; and the antioxidants can protect nerve cells, particularly in the brain which could help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease.
With different types and flavours available, it’s hard to get tired of this scrumptious fruit.
