Bananas are extremely good for you and your health for many reasons. For one,
scientist believe that bananas were the first fruit on Earth. Bananas are grown in
over 107 countries and are amongst the most consumed fruits in the world.
Bananas are also good for lowering cardiovascular dis-ease including high blood
pressure, high cholesterol, and asthma. The nutrients like fiber, potassium,
vitamin B6, and C found in bananas promote a healthy heart. The daily intake of
fiber for an adult is 4700 mg and less than 2% of US adults meet those daily
intakes. People are not eating enough fruit throughout the day causing them to
feel hungry. Studies show that people with higher intakes of potassium have a
49% lower risk of ischemic heart dis-ease. Bananas can also prevent cancer cells
from forming by destroying the formation of free radicals because of the high
levels of potassium. Bananas are also good for diabetes, treating diarrhea,
preserving memory, and boosting mood (tryptophan amino acid helps preserve
memory and boost mood. As you can tell bananas are really good for your health
and should be incorporated into our daily lifestyles.
Raspberries are loaded with nutrients and phytonutrients that are extremely
beneficial. For one, raspberries are power packed with antioxidants and anti-
inflammatory phytonutrients properties that are not only found but are
abundantly provided. These abundant antioxidants and phytonutrients are
enough to help protect against oxidative stress and excessive inflammation.
Raspberries are also great for lowering chronic dis-ease like obesity, type 2
diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. Also, new studies suggest two
compounds ketone and a flavonoid called tilliroside found in raspberries can
lower obesity risk and regulate blood sugar. Raspberries have also been
found to be beneficial by preventing chronic dis-ease thus preventing cancer
cells formation. In recent studies, phytonutrients found in raspberries have
been found to change signals between potential or existing cancer cells.
These phytonutrients create a signal causing a cycle of programmable cell
death called apoptosis. Raspberries are overall extremely beneficial for your
health and can be easily included in you diet by adding on in smoothies, fruit
salads, salads, and desserts. Remember we must eat to live, not live to eat.
