Bananas contain three natural sugars. Sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. Banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial increase in 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 top athletes. But energy is not the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet
According to a recent survey conducted by MIND among 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 and eat a banana. Vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
