B ananas contain 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.

1. Muscle Cramps

2. 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.
Forget the pills
eat a banana.
The vitamin B6 it contains regulates
blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production o
f hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

This unique tropical fruit is extremely
high in potassium yet low in salt, making it 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.
5. Brain Power
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex)
school ( England ) 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.
6. Constipation
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help
restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome
the problem without resorting to laxatives.
7. 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.
8. Morning Sickness
Snacking on bananas between meals helps
to  keep  blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

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.
10. Nerves
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.
11. 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 chips.
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 b
lood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods
every two hours to  keep  levels steady.

12. 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.
13. 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.
14. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
Bananas can help SAD sufferers because
they contain the natural mood Enhancer tryptophan.
15. Smoking &Tobacco Use
Bananas can also help people trying to give
up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain,
as well as the potassium and magnesium f
ound in them, help the body recover from
the effects of nicotine with
16. 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.
17. Shine on our shoes
Quick shine on our shoes??
Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly
on the shoe...polish with dry cloth.
18. 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%!
19. 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
it’s time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘
A banana a day keeps the doctor away!’
