Bananas are a delicious, healthy and versatile snack, perfect for on the go or to incorporate into some delicious meals. It is no surprise they are one of the world’s most popular fruit with over 100 billion eaten every year.
With most medium-sized bananas coming in around 105 calories not only are they a low-calorie choice they’re also high in fibre, magnesium and potassium. Fibre is known to help control blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol level and help maintain bowel health which is all associated with aiding in helping with weight loss. Manganese can help your body produce collagen and protects your skin as well as proving antioxidants. Potassium is a super important electrolyte that helps regulate heart function, the combination of high potassium and low sodium helps to control high blood pressure
Bananas are also a great provider of important vitamins. Bananas provide about 10% of your daily Vitamin C needs which can protect your body from cell damage, support brain health and produce serotonin. A third of your daily Vitamin B6 can come from one banana which helps maintain a healthy nervous system and maintain brain function.
