The Fruit of the wise - Banana

Banana is called the fruit of the wise, the reason being quite obvious ..... it has great nutritional values, tastes good and is easy on your wallet.
And after reading this article you will not look at this mighty fruit in the same way again !

Brain Power Banana is a rich source of Potassium which is known to increase the alertness of the brain.

Anti Depressant Have a ripened banana whenever you feel low or depressed.This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

Heartburn Bananas have a natural antacid effect on the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

Nerves Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Smoking & Tobacco Use Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Antacid Since they have a naturally occurring antacid effect in the body, bananas help get rid of heart burn after eating your favorite (but miserable) foods, which have loads of spices in them.

Beautiful Skin Take a little bit of the ripened fruit, mash it and mix it with few drops of honey. Use it as a face pack for a soft and moisturized skin.

So add this humble fruit to your daily diet. And it won't be wrong to say "A Banana a day keeps the doctor away".

Go grab a banana !!!
