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.
