The Benefits of Banana

Articles 25 Apr 2019

Is there any Oatlovers here who don’t like banana? Wow, what a loss. Did you know that bananas provide many benefits to people who consume them? Bananas are one of the most consumed fruits in the world because of their benefits. Let’s take a look what benefits bananas can give you.

1. Contains lots of nutrients

Bananas contain lots of nutrients. Bananas contain many important vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6. All of this contributes to the proper functioning of the body and maintaining your health.

2. High in fiber

Bananas contain lots of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber has a tendency to slow digestion and make you feel full for a longer time. That’s why bananas are often included in breakfast so you can start your day without having to worry about waiting for lunch just because you feel hungry.

3. Maintain heart health

Potassium is a mineral that is very important for heart health, especially blood pressure control. Bananas are a good source of potassium. One medium size banana (118 grams) contains 9% of RDI. Potassium-rich diets can help lower blood pressure, and people who eat lots of potassium have a 27% lower risk of heart disease.

4. High antioxidants

Fruit and vegetables are excellent sources of antioxidants, and bananas are one of them. Bananas contain several types of powerful antioxidants, including dopamine and catechins. These antioxidants are linked to many health benefits, such as reducing the risk of heart disease.

Well, how about it, Oatlovers? Bananas are extremely healthy and delicious, aren’t they? But, remember that bananas contain a lot of fiber. Consuming too much fiber can cause bloating, gas, and stomach cramps.
