Consumption Of Banana Maintains Normal Blood Pressure

Consumption of banana is ideal for the maintenance of normal blood pressure and heart function.

Bananas are the best source of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.

A medium sized banana provides 350g of potassium which helps the body to maintain normal fluid and electrolyte balances in the cells.

``Bananas help restore normal bowel activity, rich in non digestible fibers, help with constipation and diarrhea and normalize the colon's function to absorb large amounts of water for regular bowel movements.

``Bananas have long been recognized for their antacid effects that protect against stomach ulcers and ulcer damage. They help to neutralize acidity, a great way to get rid of heart burn.

``Bananas are a perfect baby food. They are the best solid food to introduce to infants. A mashed ripe banana is an extremely simple and healthy baby food’’

Bananas are easy to digest and rarely cause allergic reactions and could be recommended for children recovering from gastrointestinal problems particularly diarrhea.

The dietary fiber component in banana pulp has cholesterol-lowering effect and also promotes an overall improvement of the functional efficiency of kidneys.

``The benefits that the kidneys derive from bananas are due to the high potassium content present in it.

``A normal intake of potassium suppresses calcium excretion in the urine and minimizes the kidney stone.’’

Bananas are known to calm an upset stomach and help rehydrate the body.

Bananas contain 25 per cent of Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin B6 necessary for producing antibodies, red blood cells and aiding in the metabolism of fat.
