Bananas are * the most edible fruits for 15 consecutive years from 2005 to 2019.
The banana, which is the fruit most consumed by people, contains vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber in a balanced way, so it can be expected to have several effects, such as skin beautification, prevention of anemia, prevention of stroke. heat and constipation prevention. . .. In addition, bananas contain several types of sugar and each one has a different absorption rate in the body, making it a food that delays the increase in blood sugar, prevents the accumulation of fat and can be expect it to have a dietary effect.
It's easy to think that sweet and nutritious bananas are high in calories, but in reality, they each have around 86 kcal, which is lower in calories than rice or bread! The calories in rice are the same as half a bowl and half a slice of bread (without adding anything). It is an essential fruit for a healthy life because it contains a good balance of nutrients that are often deficient in daily life.
Potassium (360 mg)
Bananas are fruits rich in potassium. Potassium has the function of excreting sodium (salt), and ingesting bananas can be expected to have several effects, such as relieving high blood pressure and bloating and preventing muscle spasms during exercise.
Dietary fiber (1.1 g)
Dietary fiber slows the absorption of nutrients in the body (suppresses the rapid rise in blood sugar levels) and excretes harmful substances from the body. Both of these functions can be expected to be effective for constipation.
Function of water-soluble dietary fiber
・ Absorbs water in the intestines and promotes excretion
・ Suppresses the absorption of cholesterol
How Insoluble Dietary Fiber Works
・ Increase the number of chews to give a feeling of fullness.
・ Adsorbs the contents of the intestine and promotes excretion.
Bananas contain several types of sugar, such as glucose, fructose, and sucrose. The speed at which energy is converted into energy varies from one type to another, which is why it is considered an excellent source of sugar with immediate effects and sustainability. In addition, when dietary fiber is included, it also has the function of slowing down the speed of digestion of sugar, which is why it is one of the characteristics that makes you feel hungry and does not spike your blood sugar level. In addition to glucose, which is the brain's source of energy, it also contains vitamins and minerals that support sugar as energy for the brain, so it can be expected to improve concentration.
Vitamin B1 (0.05 mg)
It is one of the water-soluble vitamins that works to obtain energy from sugar and has the effect of maintaining the normal functioning of the central and peripheral nerves. It is also a nutrient that causes a lot of loss of cook, but bananas can be eaten raw so you don't have to worry about loss of cook. It can be expected to have effects such as "aiding sugar metabolism", "maintaining normal central and peripheral nerve functions", "countermeasures against bloating" and "recovering fatigue".
Vitamin B2 (0.04 mg)
Water soluble vitamins that support lipid metabolism. It is unstable to light and alkalis, it has the property of reacting easily, it has resistance to heat, but it has the property of being soluble in water.
Niacin (vitamin B3) (0.7 mg)
Niacin is a general term for nicotinic acid and nicotinamide, and is a vitamin that produces energy in the body and is involved in the metabolism of lipids and amino acids. You can expect effects like "assisting lipid and amino acid metabolism" and "supporting healthy skin and mucous membranes."
Vitamin B6 (0.38 mg)
Nutrients related to protein metabolism. In the human body, it has the function of maintaining and improving the health of hair, skin, teeth, etc., and it also has the function of making the nerves function normally. It can be expected to function as "aiding protein metabolism", "aiding neurotransmitter synthesis", "promoting growth" and "anti-anemia".
Folic acid is a member of the B vitamins called "vitamins that act on hematopoiesis." Because it dissolves easily in water and is weak when heated, bananas that can be eaten raw without washing them with water can be eaten without losing nutrients.
Although they are abundant in red wine and green tea, bananas also contain polyphenols. Ripe bananas are high in lifegoals, which is why we recommend ripe sugar spotted bananas. It has a strong antioxidant effect, removes active oxygen, and can be expected to be effective in preventing lifestyle-related diseases.
