Native to the Caribbean and Central America, bananas are a good source of vitamins B6 and C, offer a fair share of magnesium, and are rich in potassium – one banana contains 450 mg of potassium, one-fifth of the adult daily requirement. In addition, bananas help to:
– Strengthen the stomach lining – bananas are good for soothing indigestion
– Normalize blood pressure, and protect against atherosclerosis and heart disease
– Promote healthy bones
The perfect go-anywhere food, bananas have only about 100 calories each, and serve as a healthful snack or pick-me-up anytime during the day.
Diabetics should take note that bananas have an intermediate score of 55 on the Glycemic Index (GI).
