Health Benefits

Bananas are extremely beneficial and 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).
