The Love For Banana

My son really loves Banana. I guess it is his most favorite fruit. He can actually eat 2-3 pieces of cavendish banana in one day if we let him to. But I observed that each time he eats banana, he poops a lot which for my own understanding is not good. Though I know that there are lots of nutrients and benefits that we get from banana, but too much of anything is always bad. So I still let him eat banana, at least once a day.

Anyway, here are some benefits that we can get from banana that I got from HubPages:
Health Benefits of Banana :

1. Banana is an energy booster.
2. Banana contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone that is known to make you feel happy and improve your mood.
3. Banana is a rich source of iron, thus it is helpful in cases of anemia.
4. Banana is good a good source of potassium. If you are taking diuretics take 2 bananas a day to prevent the depletion of potassium in the body.
5. The skin of the banana is said to help remove warts(cover the warts with the inner skin of banana).
6. Banana is good for people who have high blood pressure because it is low in salt.
