I had no idea that bananas had these benefits.
No wonder monkeys are so happy.
Now I’m glad that I eat one every day.
But I’m thinking I should eat it earlier in the day now.
Instead of waiting till later in the morning.
Here are the 6 benefits:
Energy – they provide carbohydrates for replacing muscle glycogen
Brain Power – makes the pupils more alert which helps with learning. Students have said that they have more brain power for exams after they’ve had bananas at breakfast and lunch.
Increase Happiness – Bananas release a mood regulating substance which ends up elevating mood and makes us happier.
Bowel Health – High in soluble fiber which helps maintain regular bowel function and help stop constipation.
Help Smokers Quit – Contain vitamin B and other minerals that help reduce the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
PMS – They contain vitamin B6 which regulates blood glucose levels and helps in times of stress. Also helps to suppress cranky moods.
If you need a quick snack you can’t go wrong.
Who couldn’t use more energy and happiness?
