WHY YOU SHOULD EAT BANANAS


Should you ever find yourself in a rush with no time for breakfast, throw a couple of bananas & a cup of almond milk in the blender (magic bullet, etc.) and GO! You'd be surprised how power packed our little yellow freinds are. Here are a few reasons why you should go bananas over them:

1. Bananas help overcome depression due high levels of tryptophan,
which is converted into serotonin -- the happy-mood brain
neurotransmitter

and sustain your blood sugar

cramps by eating a banana

5. Improve your mood and reduce PMS symptoms by eating a banana,
which regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation
6. Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight
loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of
white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6
7. Strengthen your blood and relieve anemia with the added iron from
bananas

the FDA as being able to lower blood pressure, and protect against heart
attack and stroke

9. Rich in pectin, bananas aid digestion and gently chelate toxins and
heavy metals from the body

relieve stomach ulcers by coating the lining of the stomach against
corrosive acids

Natural cures from a simple banana

15. Eating bananas helps prevent kidney cancer, protects the eyes against
macular degeneration and builds strong bones by increasing
calcium absorption

21. Eating a banana can lower the body temperature and cool you during a
fever or on a hot day
22. The natural mood-enhancer tryptophan, helps to relieve Seasonal
Affective Disorder (SAD)
23. Quitting smoking? Bananas contain high levels of B-vitamins as well as
potassium and magnesium speed recovery from the effects of
withdrawal
