BANANAS


HEALTH AND NUTRITION

Bananas are a great source of energy. They are high in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. A popular snack food among athletes, bananas are loaded with potassium and magnesium, two minerals essential for helping muscles contract properly during exercise and preventing cramps. Best of all, bananas do not contain fats, cholesterol and sodium. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, foods rich in potassium and low in sodium may help reduce the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and certain cancers.
