The Power of Bananas

Bananas are a great source of vitamins, potassium, and minerals. Yet, bananas can provide your body so many other health benefits. For example, bananas can help provide your body with electrolytes. Drink smoothies with bananas to help replenish your body after you exercise.

According to LiveScience.com “Bananas can be helpful in overcoming depression “due to high levels of tryptophan, which the body converts to serotonin, the mood-elevating brain neurotransmitter,” Flores said.” Stay happy and healthy! Eat more bananas.

Bananas can also help to stimulate appetite, relieve the pain & burning symptoms of occasional heartburn, and help form firm stools when you have diarrhea.* As Hippocrates says “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food.”
