25 Health Benefits of Eating (organic) Bananas

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


From Survival and Beyond

I eat an organic  banana every morning and as snack in between meals.  I always knew they had powerful health benefits, such as vitamins and  potassium for brain and muscle functioning, natural sugars for energy and as a digestive aid, but I never knew they had so many other health benefits!  As with all the fruits and vegetables I eat, I always look for organically grown bananas.  Fortunately, the (only) supermarket where I live carries organic bananas (and they’re always the first to get bought up), but many grocery stores do not.  If your local grocery store doesn’t carry organic produce, contact the store manager and request (demand) it!  The more requests they get, the more likely they will start stocking it.

The following report is from our friends at Natural News:

You’ll never look at a banana the same way again after discovering the many health benefits and reasons to add them to your diet. Bananas are high in fiber and three natural sugars — glucose, sucrose and fructose — giving them almost magical powers to provide a huge energy boost. Bananas combat depression, make you smarter, cure hangovers, relieve morning sickness, protect against kidney cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and blindness. They can cure the itch of a mosquito bite and put a great shine on your shoes. If you think bananas are just for monkeys, think again.
