11 Banana Health Benefits Based on Evidence

Bananas are incredibly healthy, convenient, and delicious, as well as one of the most affordable fresh fruits available. As a result, they're a great option for anyone trying to eat more healthily.

While they are native to Southeast Asia, they can thrive in a variety of warm conditions and are thus found all over the world. The Cavendish cultivar, the most common form seen in supermarkets, starts out stiff and green before turning yellow, soft, and delicious as it ripens.

Bananas are high in critical nutrients and may aid weight loss, digestion, and cardiovascular health.

Here are 11 scientifically proven health benefits of bananas.1. nutrient dense

Bananas contain a fair amount of fiber as well as a number of antioxidants. One regular-sized banana (126 grams) also contains the following nutrients:

112 calories0 gram of fat1 gram proteinCarbohydrates: 29 g3 gram fiberVitamin C: 12% of the Daily Value (DV)Riboflavin: 7% of the daily valueFolate: 6% of the daily valueNiacin: 5% of the daily valueCopper accounts for 11% of the DV.Potassium: 10% of the daily valueMagnesium: 8% of the daily value

One banana has about 112 calories and is almost entirely made up of water and carbohydrates. They have no fat and very little protein.

Green, unripe bananas are primarily starch and resistant starch, a sort of indigestible fiber we'll talk about later. As the fruit ripens, the flavor becomes sweeter, while the fiber content decreases.

2. It has the potential to lower blood sugar levels.

Bananas contain a lot of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in liquid to form a gel during digestion. It is also responsible for the sponge-like texture of bananas.

Resistant starch is found in unripe bananas, which your body cannot digest. When these two forms of fiber are combined, they may aid in blood sugar regulation after meals. Furthermore, they may aid in the regulation of your appetite by slowing the emptying of your stomach.

This means that, despite their higher carb content, bananas will not cause significant blood sugar spikes in healthy people. While diabetics can eat bananas, it is not recommended that they consume a big quantity at once.
