Greetings friends of steemit.


Every day I will publish a fruit, vegetable or vegetable, highlighting its properties and benefits for health and beauty. In this way we will know more about the natural benefits that we can count on daily if we know more about the fruits, vegetables that we consume or that we see in the market and that we have not yet tested. In today's delivery I will talk about ...

The bananas are among the most consumed fruit in the world. From the nutritional point of view, they are a good source of potassium, magnesium and vitamin B6. Our body uses these substances to stay healthy.

Not everyone knows that the bananas are also rich in antioxidants, which help protect our body from the action of free radicals. The bananas strengthen the nervous system, help to lose weight and contribute to the production of white blood cells thanks to its contribution of vitamin B6.

A medium-sized banana (about 126 grams) contains 450 mg of potassium, 30 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 19 grams of sugars and 1 gram of protein.


Let's look at some of the greatest health benefits of the Bananas.

The bananas are a panacea for the heart. They are rich in potassium, a mineral that helps maintain a regular heart rate. In addition, the high potassium content of the exchanges and their reduced sodium intake could protect the cardiovascular system from hypertension, experts say.

Reduces anxiety and stress:

The bananascan be useful to rediscover good humor and reduce stress thanks to its important content of tryptophan, a substance that our body converts to serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps us raise our mood. In addition, vitamin B6 in bananas helps you sleep better.

Protect the view:

Even bananas, like carrots, play an important role in protecting the eyesight. In fact, the exchanges contain vitamin A, an essential substance for the eyes, to maintain normal vision and to improve night vision. Vitamin A helps preserve the membranes of the eye and the cornea. The swabs can also help prevent macular degeneration.

Strengthens bones:

Bananas are not an important source of calcium, but they are still useful for maintaining strong bones. The exchanges contain substances that improve the body's ability to absorb calcium.

Prevents stroke:

Eating bananas often reduces the risk of stroke in menopause.

Protects the stomach:

Eating bananas regularly could protect the stomach from ulcers. The nutrients present in the bananas seem to create a protective barrier in the stomach against the excessive action of the gastric juices with respect to the walls of this organ. In addition, the exchanges contain compounds that help eliminate certain types of bacteria considered among the causes of gastric ulcers.

They provide a lot of energy:

The bananas are considered a perfect food for athletes. A study conducted at the Appalachian State University showed that eating half a cup every 15 minutes during a pedaling test was as effective as taking a sports drink. The changes are recommended to athletes because they provide the muscles with the carbohydrates they need and because their antioxidant content helps recovery.

It helps to sleep better:

Tryptophan also stimulates the production of melatonin, which promotes relaxation and helps regulate sleep.

Improves muscles:

Promote contraction and relaxation of muscles thanks to magnesium, an essential mineral for the functioning of the whole body that eliminates the risk of cramping after training and restores energy.


Reduce inflammation:

Ideal against mosquito bites, if rubbed over the reddened area, the skin of banana can reduce inflammation and swelling and provide immediate relief against itching.

Whiter teeth:

The potassium contained in the banana (including the peel) seems to be very useful to reduce the appearance of spots on the teeth. Due to the high amount of salicylic acid (equipped with acid cleaning properties that remove excess plaque and tartar) and citric acid (excellent for the removal of dark spots), rubs its shell on the dental arches, will prove to be a bleach natural perfect (that does not wear and has no side effects). The teeth will also be mineralized and strengthened thanks to the content of magnesium, potassium and manganese.

Goodbye to the warts:

The skin of banana is also a good remedy against warts. To combat this uncomfortable and annoying imperfection, simply apply the banana peel on the wart with a sticker, repeating the operation for several days.

Reduces bruising and acne:

The anti-inflammatory action of the banana peel is such that it reduces bruising and acne, as it has a nourishing and astringent action. The method is the same: rub the face or part of the body that presents the hematoma with the banana peel and leave for a while.

Anti-wrinkle mask:

The nutrients contained in the banana pulp are an excellent remedy for wrinkles. Mix a ripe banana, add a couple of tablespoons of whipped cream, a teaspoon of honey and a tablespoon of oatmeal, then add a few drops of water. Applying for 15 minutes on the face, this compound will help reduce the signs of expression, deeply nourish the skin and elasticize it.

Elixir of beauty:

One of the components present in the shell of banana is vitamin C, along with several antioxidant elements. These elements are valuable to reduce and prevent wrinkles and to improve circulation in the areas of the face and neck.

They are a source of vitamin C:

When we think of Vitamin C we immediately get oranges and strawberries, but even the bananas are a source of this vitamin. A normal serving of exchanges contains 15% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Vitamin C combats free radicals and helps prevent inflammation. It also contributes to the formation of collagen and helps keep blood vessels healthy.


There are many ways to prepare this rich fruit: Cakes, Bread, cupcakes, pancakes, cookies, smoothies, smoothies, and many more. For those who are allergic to eggs, it can be substituted with bananas when making a cake.

I hope you like this initiative ... you can make suggestions and propose fruits and vegetables for the next delivery.
