Health: Astonishing Benefits Of Eating Banana

Bhubaneswar: One of the most popular fruits, Bananas are extremely healthy and delicious. Native to Southeast Asia, they contain several essential nutrients and provide benefits for digestion and heart health.

The green, unripe bananas consist mostly of starch and resistant starch, but as the banana ripens, the starch turns into sugar (glucose, fructose, and sucrose).

Aside from being very nutritious, they are also highly convenient snack food. Rich in fiber and antioxidants, Bananas hold very little protein and almost no fat.

Given below are some of the astonishing health benefits of Bananas.

  • High Fibre Content:

Bananas are loaded with fibre, both soluble and insoluble. This helps in slowing down digestion and keep you feeling full for a longer time- a unique speciality makes bananas an ideal breakfast meal.

  • Good For Heart:

High fibre foods are said to be good for the heart. According to a study by the University of Leeds in the UK, increasing the consumption of fibre-rich food such as bananas can lower the risk of both cardiovascular disease (CVD) and coronary heart diseases (CHD).

  • Supports Digestion:

Ayurveda says banana has a sweet and sour taste. The sweet taste is said to bring about a sense of heaviness but the sour taste, known to stimulate the digestive juices, supports digestion and helping in building up metabolism.

  • Storehouse Of Nutrients:

Banana is a storehouse of essential nutrition. The fruit is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6, which are essential for the proper functioning of the body and keeping you healthy.

  • Controls Blood Pressure:

Bananas have low salt content and high potassium content, and these properties make it an ideal food for those suffering from high blood pressure.

  • Helps In Fighting Anaemia:

Anaemia is a condition where there is a decrease in the number of red blood cells or Haemoglobin in the blood. This results in fatigue, shortness of breath, and paleness.

However, high iron content in Banana helps in boosting the Haemoglobin level in the blood- making it a highly recommended food for those suffering from Anaemia.
