Banana Benefits!

Why should you eat a banana every day?

Bananas help you breathe better, especially people with asthmatic symptoms.

Bananas can help to control blood sugar. One average-size banana contains about 12 percent of your recommended daily intake of potassium. Potassium can help lower blood pressure.

Bananas can help prevent cancer. Bananas contain 17 percent of your daily intake of vitamin C.

Bananas are a good pre-or mid workout snack. They contain simple carbs that can be converted quickly into energy and because they are high in potassium (an electrolyte) they can help prevent dehydration. Bananas also contain several other vitamins such as fiber, vitamin B6, and antioxidants.

Lastly bananas help build stronger bones. They contain 16 percent of the recommended daily value of manganese which can help prevent arthritis and osteoporosis.
