Health Benefits

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 intakes. People are not eating enough fruit throughout the day causing

them to feel hungry for other foods. 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.
