Banana- 6 superfoods to eat everyday - Women's Health & Fitness

Bananas

At 108 calories each, four to six bananas per week can help to maintain healthy digestion, lower blood pressure and curb appetite. They are dubbed nature’s energy snack and are great brain food to help keep you alert while at work. Because they're rich in potassium, bananas are good for bones. The potassium neutralises sodium, which can cause calcium loss. Bananas also nourish healthy bacteria in the digestive system, helping the body to absorb nutrients and resist bacterial infection.

Super foods can help you look and feel your best today while promoting long-term health and fitness over time.
