Banana and strawberry, two super healthy foods that are part of Karl’s uniform. Today we are going to talk about the benefits of the Banana.
One of the most popular fruits is super tasty and full of important nutrients like potassium, fiber and antioxidant agents. Rich in vitamins B1, B2, C, in addition to minerals like copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and carbohydrates, being a good source of energy for the body. Its antioxidant action is thanks to the presence of catechin. In addition, banana contains tryptophan, an important amino acid that acts directly in the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that promotes feelings of well-being, relaxation and good mood. The presence of the fibers helps the intestinal tract to function properly.
Banana helps control blood pressure and cholesterol, thanks to manganese. Helps control blood glucose levels because it has a low glycemic index and is a good snack between meals. And it also helps fight fatigue and tiredness. Potassium is great in fighting muscle cramps and vitamin C strengthens the immune system.
The B vitamins benefit the nervous system, promote a feeling of satiety and normalize the heart rate. There are several types of banana such as nanica, silver, apple, earth and gold. They can be consumed in natura or in vitamins, fruit salads, cakes, pies, accompanied by nuts, raisins and cereals like amaranth, oats for example.
Diabetics should be cautious about fruit consumption because of their high carbohydrate and sugar content, even with low glycemic index. With so many benefits, how about making banana a health ally ?!
