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 among 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.
