The banana, that fruit that gives so many headaches. Urban legends say that it is one of the worst fruits you can consume if you are on a diet. That fattens in abundance, that you should never eat it – never of the ever – at night and that its sugars are not exactly beneficial.
Either you love it or you hate it, there is no intermediate point. If you are one of those who would give everything to eat a banana at all times, you are in luck: the benefits of this fruit are countless.
Banana is rich in potassium and phosphorus. It contains fewer carbohydrates than a banana (no, banana and banana are not the same) and is the perfect fruit to sweeten desserts, cravings, and dishes without having to resort to sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Do you need more good data to give you a privileged place in the fruit bowl? If so, wait to read this: its high tryptophan content fights autumnal asthenia and can even help alleviate premenstrual syndrome. When consumed, the body transforms this amino acid into serotonin, which guarantees a good instantaneous mood (or at least, a slight sense of well-being. See you coming; not by eating bunches of bananas right and left, you will feel better in an ipsofacta way, though, you will accumulate its many other benefits).
Rich in vitamin B, it helps calm the nervous system and stomach upset. The banana is a very potent protector of the intestinal mucosa and can interfere when it comes to preventing ulcers, squirrels or heavy digestions. You know, if you suffer continuous gut discomfort … a bang to the bag and agree. You can even buy a ‘Tupper’ to take it in a say way. Then don’t say.
If you suffer from anemia it will become your indispensable ally: it contains high levels of iron, which favor the formation of hemoglobin in the blood.
And its high sugar content?
Do not panic. Yes, the banana has high sugar levels, specifically, three types: glucose, fructose, and sucrose. But they are of natural origin, so they are healthy. What’s more, the banana is very rich in fiber and contains little fat so that its nutritional values are balanced and help to make sugar absorption faster. The only harmful sugar is the so-called ‘free’ that would comprise table sugar, the present in the ultra-porous, the syrup … but the sugar naturally present in the fruit will never be harmful.
