««« Miracles Of Banana »»»

Bananas. Containing three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose   combined with fiber, a banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial  boost of energy.
 
Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a  strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit   with the world's leading athletes.
 
But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also  help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions,  making it a must to add to our daily diet.
 
Depression:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering   from depression,  many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas   contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into  serotonin, known to make  you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates   blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
 
Anemia:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin  in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
 
Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt,  making it the perfect to beat blood pressure. So much  so, the US Food and  Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry  to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of  blood pressure and stroke
 
Brain Power:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped  through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and  lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the
potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert..
 
Constipation:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
 
Hangovers:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and,  with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while  the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
 
Heartburn:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
 
Morning Sickness:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood  sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
 
Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the  affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it   amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
 
Nerves:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.
 
Overweight and at work?
Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria  found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and
crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were  more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to  avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar
levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady
 
Ulcers:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal  disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw
fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
 
Temperature control:
 Many other cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit  that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is
born with a cool temperature.
 
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.
 
Smoking:
Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6 and B12 they contain, as well as the  potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
 
Stress:
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we  are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.
 
Strokes:
According to research in "The New England Journal of  Medicine,"eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of   death by strokes by as much as 40%!
 
Warts:
Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or  surgical tape!So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and  iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in  potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A banana a day keeps the  illness away!"
