10 September 2011: With bananas being sold at dirt-cheap prices at this time of the year, it might be tempting to re-evaluate the benefits that this little tropical fruit has to offer. Here is the lowdown on why you should be going bananas, at least when it comes to your diet:



Naturally rich in Potassium

With ample amounts of potassium in them, bananas help maintain the electrolyte balance in the cells of the body. Higher levels of potassium in the body can help lower the risk of strokes. Being low in salt, it’s good for BP patients as they need to be careful about their daily intake of salt.


Loaded with Vitamins, minerals

Large size bananas are known to be packed with high amounts of vitamins A, which is especially important for the development of optical tissues present in the eyes. Vitamin A is also essential for healthy skin and bone development.


Other benefits:

Being high in fibre, they are an ideal cure for constipation, and an alternative to chemical laxatives.


Bananas are also known to be mood elevators as it triggers the production of serotonin.


It’s a great fruit for those suffering from ulcers as it is easily digestible and has acidity neutralising properties.
