12 reasons why you should eat bananas

Banana is one of my favorite fruit and has become Kitana’s favorite. I never knew there were so many positives about eating bananas. I buy bananas every week at home but never knew….

1. Helps with Morning Sickness

Eating a banana between meals helps stabilize blood sugar and reduce nausea from morning sickness.

2. Shines your shoes

Rub the inside of a banana peel on your leather shoes or handbag and polish with a dry cloth for a quick shine.

3. Helps Bug bites

Rub a bug bite or hives with the inside of the banana peel to relieve itching and irritation.

4. Makes you alert

Bananas make you smarter and help with learning by making you more alert. Eat a banana before an exam to benefit from the high levels of potassium.

5. Helps if you quitting Smoking

Bananas contain high levels of B-vitamins as well as potassium and magnesium to speed recovery from the effects of withdrawal.

6. Depression

Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.


7. Cramps

Protect against muscle cramps during workouts and nighttime leg cramps by eating a banana.

8. Swelling

Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.

9. PMS

Improve your mood and reduce PMS symptoms by eating a banana, which regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation.

10. Protects against Heart attack and stroke

High in potassium and low in salt, bananas are officially recognized by the FDA as being able to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke.

11. Helps with Constipation

High fiber in bananas can help normalize bowel motility.

12. Temperature

Eating a banana can lower the body temperature and cool you during a fever or on a hot day.
