    Default 'go banana'


    Have you all heard the term called 'Go Banana'? This term has come from advantages of Banana.

    Banana is a cheapest fruit in India and easily available through out the year.

    Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. This is the reason why Banana is favorite fruit of athletes.

    It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

    Depression: Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

    Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

    Blood Pressure: Due to it's high content of potassium and low content of salt, it helps regulate BP.

    Brain Power: It can assist learning by making one more alert.

    Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action.

    Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

    Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

    Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

    Overweight and at work? Researchers have found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. To avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady. Banana is the best fruit to achieve this.

    Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

    Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates our body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be re balanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

    Strokes: Bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

    I have only noted few benefits which are applicable to all of us here.

    So the message is one banana a day is must and when you get desire to snack on some food, make Banana your first choice.

    Go and eat a Banana and Go Banana.
