Why Eat Bananas



Banana is a yellow-skinned fruit that contains a high amount of vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidant properties. It is one of the most popular choices for snacks because it’s accessible and don’t have to be washed (you just need to peel off its skin). If you’re looking for healthy snack or dessert, consider eating bananas and get the following benefits.

Boosts Energy
If you’re tired because of a heavy workout or an athletic routine, eating bananas can provide you the energy you lost during your workout. Bananas are high-energy fruits loaded with essential nutrients that can keep you energized and active for a longer period.

Keeps Your Heart Healthy
Bananas are high in potassium and low in sodium, making them a heart-friendly food. This good combination of potassium and sodium balances the electrolyte level and regulates your blood pressure.

Cures Hangover
When you drink too much alcohol, the potassium level in your body drops down making you feel down and sluggish. Bananas are rich in potassium and energy-releasing nutrients that can help in reducing hangover symptoms and replacing the potassium you’ve lost.

Relieves Constipation
Bananas are also rich in fiber which helps in relieving constipation and restoring your normal bowel movement. However, this is only applicable to ripe bananas because unripened or green bananas can cause constipation.

Reduces Stress
When you’re suffering from too much stress, your metabolic rate rises and your potassium level becomes depleted. A banana helps in providing you with potassium which also helps in normalizing your heartbeat and regulating your body’s water balance.

The benefits listed above are just few of the advantages of eating bananas. So if you want to feel energized and healthy, always include bananas in your daily diet.
