You may all be asking yourselves Why ripe bananas, why not some other fruit? I will explain why each of us should consume ripe bananas by discussing the benefits of this fruit. Individuals who eat ripe bananas can take advantage of the many benefits associated with them. Bananas are one of the few foods which can satisfy the requirements of 2 key food groups ie the Glow foods and the Go foods. Bananas are Glow foods because it contains key nutrients such as vitamins B & C & Potassium, and it is a Go food because it contains carbohydrates and provides a ready source of energy. Some of the key benefits of consuming ripe bananas are: 1. Bananas are a good source of potassium whether they are ripe or less ripe. Eating more potassium than the RDA can help prevent and regulate high blood pressure. 2. Eaten after 30 minutes of exercise, when muscle energy is exhausted, ripe bananas can improve stamina. They are also very good for energetic activity. Very ripe bananas are high in sugars and are equivalent to consuming 4 bottles of Lucosade. 3. Less ripe bananas counter constipation & ripe, sugary bananas help to relieve diarrhoea. The starch in less ripe bananas resists digestion, leading to bulkier faeces, easing constipation. Very ripe bananas are used for diarrhoea. 4. Ripe bananas may raise mood and help sleep.

Bananas are Very Versatile Fruit 1. The riper a banana the better it is for you. In fact sugar content in a banana is at its peak when the skin has turned completely black. This is the point at which all the starches in a banana have been converted to sugars. Also, contrary to popular opinion, bananas can and should be refrigerated to extend their edible life. 2. Dietary Supplement: Because bananas are so high in vitamins B6 and B12 and so low in sodium they are a perfect dietary supplement. They also contain magnesium and potassium along with the sugars sucrose, fructose and glucose. A real dietary cocktail 3. Nicotine Withdrawal: It is said that the two B vitamins and minerals help with nicotine addiction withdrawal. No need for Nicorette gum or the patch. 4. Sugar Fix: The sugars fructose and glucose are known to enter the bloodstream rapidly which is a good thing if you are experiencing low blood sugar. This makes them a good food choice for hypoglycemics and diabetics. 5. Diet Aid: A typical medium banana has less than 100 calories and, with a glass of water, can be very filling. The effect of one banana on blood sugar and protein levels is good for up to two hours. This makes it a near perfect dietary snack. 6. Digestion Aid: They are also the "B" in the Banana, rice, applesauce, and toast (BRAT) diet, a food regimen recommended for children recovering from gastric upset. Note that the BRAT diet is not recommended for extended periods as it lacks protein. 7. Ingredient List: When tested a medium banana contains: A gram of protein, Three (3g) grams of fiber, Twenty-seven (27g) grams of of carbohydrates, Twenty-four (24g) grams of sugars, Forty-three (43mg) milligrams of magnesium,

And perhaps most importantly of all, four hundred sixty (460mg) milligrams of potassium.

8. Sports Tonic: The potassium and magnesium makes in a near perfect sports food for those lactic acid related muscle cramps. I have personally found that a banana, after a particularly grueling jog or exercise routine, will relieve muscle cramps within fifteen minutes. 9. Other Uses & Fun Facts: Once you've finished eating the banana - don't throw the peel away; put it to good use. Because the banana peel is also loaded with potassium it can be used to reduce wrinkles around the eyes. Rubbing a fresh banana peel, yellow side out, under and around the eyes and on the forehead can reduce worry lines and bags. A banana peel can also reduce the itching and swelling from an insect bite or bee stings. There is no need for Neosporin or Polysporin or those other expensive creams, Again just rub the peel on the bite or for extended relief tape some peel to the bite.

Humor There was once a strange rumor that past Hollywood stars who were known for their more famous body parts were rumored to have lined their bras with bananas for perkier body effects. Ladies its only a rumor, so please do not try that at home.
Conclusion: So to summarize: We do not need to look very far for a healthy, tasty and nutritious snack that gives the consumer numerous benefits. Ripe Bananas. Every person can improve their health benefits by consuming fresh fruits daily. But there are few fruits which are available everywhere, every day, all year round. except - Ripe Bananas.
