Bananas are a tropical fruit which we love to eat with breakfast cereals, banana split, milk shakes and fresh fruit salads. They are available year-round and the fruit itself is versatile and well-loved by both children and adults.
This deliciously sweet and firm fruit is an excellent source of vitamins B6 and C, and is rich in potassium, dietary fibers and manganese. Its natural sweetness comes from fructose, glucose and sucrose which, when eaten, is quickly released into the bloodstream. This is the reason why a bowl of cereal with sliced bananas gives you that extra energy boost during the day.
Meanwhile, the potassium and fiber content of bananas are good for cardiovascular health. By eating one banana a day, you will be protected against atherosclerosis and high blood pressure. They are also great for those with ulcers and constipation.
Take a look at the additional health benefits of bananas:
• Helps promote bone health.
• Helps with better muscular function.
• Helps build better eyesight.
• Promotes kidney health.
• Improves concentration and memory.
So what are you waiting for? Bananas are so versatile that you can eat them during breakfast, lunch, snacks and desserts! Enjoy!
