There’s a lot more than meets the eye with bananas.

Not only are they tasty, snack size and great energy boosters, they carry a variety of mental and physical health benefits too.

Potassium is a powerful mineral which aids the cardiovascular system for maintaining a low and regular blood flow. Each banana contains roughly 350mg of potassium, so including one banana per day into your diet can help reduce your chances of developing blood pressure problems.

The trace amounts of naturally occurring fats found in bananas are part of the sterol family. Although these chemically look similar to cholesterol, the sterols found in bananas actually help block cholesterol build up in the blood.

A medium sized banana will contain around 3g of fibre – this ranks them high on the food fibre content index. The fibre found in bananas is largely soluble which studies have shown lowers risk of heart disease. Fibre is brilliant for the digestive tract also. It helps regulate the speed at which your body converts carbohydrates into simple sugars.

Another health benefit that secures bananas a “super food” title is their mental health benefits. Tryptophan is a protein that’s found in bananas which the body uses to convert into serotonin… the happy chemical. This helps promote relaxation and better moods.

Bananas also rate low on the Glycemic Index, which measures the impact of food on our blood sugars.
