Bananas are sweet, tasty and healthy snack. They can help you keep fit as well as help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions. Bananas make you happier and feel healthier.
Bananas are rich in vitamin B6 as well as fiber, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. Lack of B6 in a diet causes weakness, irritability and insomnia. This is why bananas are also suggested for women experiencing morning sickness, or people that otherwise feel nauseous.

- They are a heart-healthy food, when included in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.
- They are free of fat, cholesterol and sodium.
- A good source of potassium, dietary fiber, manganese and vitamins B6 & C.
- Bananas improve mood, because they can help produce serotonin which is also known as ‘happiness hormone’.
- They boost the immune system.
