I love bananas, don’t you love bananas? They’re super tasty and are a great grab-and-go snack that is packed full of nutrients and more potassium than another food in the world. So, it can’t be too surprising to learn that eating just two of them a day can have a great impact on one’s overall health.
The more ripe the banana is, the more cancer-fighting antioxidants and nutrients it contains.
Here are five great things that happen to the body when you eat at least two ripe bananas every day for 30 days:
You’ll be less depressed
People who suffer from depression often exhibit low levels of serotonin in the brain, meaning bananas are great for combating the condition. This happens because they have high levels of tryptophan, a chemical that gets converted into serotonin after you eat it.
You become more energetic
Bananas feature three naturally-occurring sugars: fructose, glucose and sucrose, and they provide a solid helping of fiber. Eating a banana will give you the much-needed energy boost to take on your day. Two bananas can even provide all the energy you need to power through a 90-minute workout.
They can help you lose weight
One banana typically has about 100 calories in it, meaning they’re a great option for anyone looking to stave off the hunger pangs of any diet. Because of their 3 grams of fiber, they help you keep that feeling of ‘fullness.’
They promote a healthy brain
After you consume a banana, the energy you gain is released slowly over time, helping the brain to stay alert and aware for longer periods of time. Additionally, their high potassium levels help maintain the alertness while the magnesium promotes focus and clarity.
They help balance your hormones
Bananas are packed full of nutrients that are needed for hormone production. Potassium and B6 vitamins in particular provide a great source of nutrients for our hormone production processes.
I always make sure I pick up at least one bushel of bananas when I’m at the grocery store, but after reading about all of these health benefits, I’m thinking I should probably buy a few more.
How often do you eat bananas?
