One of the most popular fruits around the world, bananas are so versatile they can be consumed in so many different forms. They are sweet and can even be eaten raw or made into a milkshake. This fruit has many health benefits, here’s why you should eat them every day:

  • Bananas are loaded with potassium and have almost zero sodium. This helps neutralise the effect of rising blood pressure by sodium. So, they are good for people with high blood pressure
  • The potassium also keeps your bones healthy and prevents osteoporosis
  • They are loaded with fibre which ensures smooth bowel movements and prevents constipation
  • The fibres also slow down the speed of digestion and makes you feel full for longer and hence makes it a good weight loss food
  • Bananas are good for breakfast as they keep you energized and satisfied for longer hours
  • The high fibre diet reduces risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases
  • Rich in Vitamin B6 helps in production of antibodies and essentials like insulin and haemoglobin
  • It provides a good amount of everyday requirement of Vitamin C that is an antioxidant which reduces the risk of cancer
