This fruit is not only easy to digest, but also contains nine nutrient. Compared with other fruits, bananas were easily to be enjoyed because it does not need to be processed.  We can easily found this fruit in the market.

The healthy benefit of banana

We have to be careful in choosing banana to get the benefit. Only a ripe banana can convert blood sugar into glucose naturally, as well as fast to be absorbed into the blood circulation. How to know the characteristic of a ripe banana? banana skin is yellowish green with brown or yellow spots. All content in ripe bananas, will provide some benefits for health. Like:

  • Ulcer pain. As a fruit which can be consumed directly, bananas do not irritate or damage to the intestine for ulcer pain, because of soft texture.
  • Anemia. Because the content of iron is quite high. This substance can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood for anemia patients. Just consume two bananas every day.
  • Pregnant woman. Women who were pregnant are suggested to eat bananas, because banana contains high folic acid. This substance is important for the perfection of the fetus, the formation of new cells and preventing birth defects. Based on research, a ripe banana contains about 85-100 calories. By eating two fresh bananas regularly will support the daily need of 58 micrograms folic acid. Banana is very good as a snack for pregnant women to reduce morning sick.
  • Power source. Because of this fruit is easily to digest, so the sugar content will be converted into a good energy source for working muscles and also very nice to eliminate fatigue.
  • Reduce stress level. Bananas contain potassium. This substance helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates moisture balance in the body. If we experiencing with stress, our metabolism will increase dramatically and reducing potassium level in the body. By consume banana, potassium levels in the body will be balanced. Banana also gave relax effect and vitamin B6 in banana useful to calm the nervous system.
  • Increase brain power. There is a research has been done by 200 student in England. They able to complete the final exam only with a breakfast using bananas. Potassium content in bananas made the students become more active in the learning process. As a teacher, I also recommend bananas to all my students.
  • Stroke. Eating bananas every day would reduce the risk of death from stroke by 40%. This report based on the research of The New England Journal of Medicine.
  • Beauty therapy. We can use banana as a face mask, overcome damaged hair and it useful to make smooth hands. Banana diet also helps skin to be cleaner and not greasy.
  • Weight loss program. A study has shown that a person can lose weight with a diet of bananas.
  • Help smokers overcome nicotine addiction. The content of vitamins B6 and B12 in bananas can neutralize the influence of nicotine in the body. For passive smoker, eating bananas also help increase the endurance of the body from smoke of cigarette.
  • Reduce high blood pressure. Banana also suggested by FDA (Food and Drugs Association) in US to prevent high blood pressure.

I think many people have awareness in using fruit and vegetables as natural remedies. Here some recipes we can use as herbal remedies by using banana. Please, check it out!

Dashboard made by banana

I know it looks weird and nobody thought that banana could be a material for car industry. By combining banana and pineapple, scientist team at the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil) has found new materials for car spare parts. This material was stronger and lighter than the materials used so far. With a method by separate fiber in bananas and pineapple and mixed with plastic. This method produces a super-strong material, even stronger 30% than Kevlar (trademarks owned by American company, DuPont). Kevlar has strong structure, tough and heat-resistant up to 370 degrees Celsius. But Sao Paulo team found great material by mixed fruit fiber which is also lighter 3-4 times than Kevlar. Environmentally friendly new material is very suitable for car spare parts such as dashboards, bumpers, and side panels.

And by the way, I have banana plants in the backyard. LOL! When I harvested one and my daughter took a picture, I though it was a good subject to write about, but you beat me to it. Good research about bananas.

      Voted this as useful as not everyone knows how good bananas are as part of your daily diet. Sometimes if the bananas I have bought ripen too quickly I bake them into a cake rather then waste them. I guess they are less healthy then and the best way to eat them is fresh.

      Hi prasetio, i have at least one every day, sometimes two.

      Due to the massive cyclone in northern Australia it wiped out 90% of the banana crop. They are three times the price now, but we still buy them. A commentator on the radio who covers finance and current affairs said that he couldn't afford to buy them now. I prefer to think that i can't afford not to. Cheers my friend, great info as always.

      Banana is extremely useful and good for the health. I read somewhere that Japanese people would eat banana that is over-ripen when they feel sick or not feeling good. I'm not sure how thing works but it is said that banana at this stage has more nutrients which are good for health. Scientist also says that eating over-ripen banana (black color) can help cure cancer.

      I had read this hub earlier but the comments box was not available, glad it's now! :) I love this information, I thought I knew a lot about bananas but you taught me more. I eat bananas practically everyday as I know how healthy they are. Thanks for sharing this!

      I am off to make a banana dessert as I purchased too many bananas, and a few are are over ripe and don't want to throw the leftovers out. :)

      Voted up!

      Excellent, I won't have to give up bananas after all. I keep seeing a banner that says "5 Foods You Must Not Eat" and there is a picture of my beloved banana on it! I won't even click the banner from curiosity because if it says I can't eat bananas, it must be hooey! Thanks

      My mom used to have us kids eat bananas after having had a stomach virus because they are so high in potassium. It takes care of the aches and pains you can get after having been ill.
