SUMMARY – The potassium contained in bananas protects your muscles from cramps, and the carbohydrates provide you with enough energy to endure a heavy workout. It’s hard to believe but the energy you get by eating two bananas is enough for a 90-minute workout! – Bananas are rich in nutrients, vitamins, and natural sugar such as sucrose and fructose. On average, one banana contains around 20% of your daily requirement of vitamin B6. This helps your body produce insulin, hemoglobin, and amino acids that are needed for the creation of healthy cells. – Bananas are easily digested and don’t irritate the gastro-intestinal tract. Resistant starch contained in bananas is not digested and ends up in the large intestine where it serves as an effective nutritional medium for healthy bacteria. – Bananas contain a lot of iron, which stimulates the production of red blood cells. Increasing the red blood cells improves blood flow in your body. – On average, each banana contains around 27 mg of magnesium. Magnesium helps your heart, muscles, and immune system function properly. – The average diet in Western culture delivers too much sodium and too little potassium. In turn, bananas contain very little sodium, but a lot of potassium, which is great for your heart health. – Bananas are rich in fiber, which makes you no longer want to eat once consumed. Bananas also contain a kind of starch that reduces your appetite and stops you gaining weight. It reduces the level of sugar in your blood and raises your body’s sensitivity to insulin.

BONUS To make an amazing banana mask, you’ll need a banana, the white of one egg, the juice of one lemon, and olive oil. Mix the banana with the whipped egg white, and then add the lemon juice and a few drops of olive oil. Apply the mask before going to shower so that you can easily wash it off when you get into the tub. This mask relieves chronic fatigue and gives your skin a fresh and healthy look!
