Incredible Health Benefits Of The Banana

Nov 24, 2015 09:40 AM EST | By Myraine Carluen Policarpio

Banana, known as a happy fruit, is good at energizing your body in many ways. Aside from its amazing health benefits, this yellow curvy fruit has also helped many women to augment their beauty regimen - giving them a radiant glow.

Eating a banana aids in relieving stress, anger, depression or any irritable emotions. It contains a rich source of vitamin B, magnesium, potassium and three natural sugars to balance the glycemic index. Remember the greener the banana, the lower the glycemic index. 

Soothing your nervous system and giving you a calming relief, it is a perfect way to decrease sudden feelings of irritability and impulsive behaviors.

Likewise, it aids your digestive system. Having a natural antacid effect in the body, it deals with constipation - restoring normal bowel action and movement without the need to resort to laxatives.

On the other hand, when you are suffering from diarrhea, your body loses one of the most important electrolytes - potassium, which can be regained by eating a banana. 

Rewarding you with the sustainable boost of energy to perform your tasks and accomplish your errands for the day, banana's combination of complex carbohydrates, natural sugar, amino acids and brain-boosting minerals make it a beneficial food for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and even to on-the-go folks like you.  

Like carrots, bananas also contain a significant amount of vitamin A. This helps maintain your normal vision and improve night vision as this nutrient has certain compounds that preserve the membrane surrounding your eyes and bring light into your cornea. 

More so, banana acts as a natural botox - preventing wrinkles and fine lines. The secret beauty recipe: Simply prepare a mixture of one ashed banana, one teaspoon of orange juice, and another teaspoon of yogurt. Apply this all-natural facemask to keep your skin youthful and radiantly beautiful. 

Apples No More

Peel, eat, and enjoy your yellow bananas with a smile. Remember that: “A banana a day can keep the doctor away!”
