In the world of natural medicine, there is a well-known phrase that eating an apple a day takes the doctor out of your life, but few people know that a banana (banana, banana, banana or whatever it is called in your city) can also keep a doctor away. The health benefits of banana come from the many vitamins and nutrients it contains.
Some of the nutrients and compounds in a banana are carbohydrates, vitamins A, C and B6, iron, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, zinc, sodium, potassium and natural sugars such as sucrose, fructose, and glucose. All of the above makes the banana a super fruit that is an integral part of a healthy daily regime.
1. Regulate bowel movements
Irregular bowel movements are an irritating health problem that can be easily resolved with regular consumption of bananas.
Bananas contain a good amount of insoluble fibers that pass through the digestive tract, wiping away waste and creating intestinal movements that are smooth and easily passable.
However, consuming too much banana, but too little water can contribute to constipation. In addition, eating bananas that are not fully ripe can also lead to constipation and gas. So remember to consume ripe bananas and drink enough water a day.
At the same time, bananas help treat diarrhea because they contain pectin, a water-soluble fiber that acts as a gelling agent and helps to absorb fluids in the intestines.
