The health benefits of bananas

Health benefits of Bananas

Sweet? Tick. Tasty? Yes! Convenient? You bet. They even come in their own biodegradable packaging.

There’s a bunch of great reasons to love bananas, and they’re especially ‘a-peeling’ from a nutrition standpoint.

Here’s why:

➜ Good for your gut, with just over two grams of gut-loving fibre per banana. If they’re a little underripe, bananas also contain a special compound called resistant starch, which feeds the good bacteria living in your digestive system.

➜ Long-lasting source of energy, to keep those pesky hunger pangs at bay between meal times.

➜ Provides potassium, a mineral that’s essential for keeping your nerves firing and your muscles contracting effectively.
