Go Bananas.. B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Go Bananas... B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

I know we've all heard the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Well what about a banana a day?? It's amazing how easily this common yellow fruit is overlooked. But I am here to let you in on a well kept secret, Bananas are SOOOOOOooooOoo good for you!!

Let's dig a little deeper into the health benefits of this fruit... Because bananas contain five times as much Vitamin A and iron, three times as much phosphorus as apples and are rich in potassium and natural sugars they are the perfect natural energy source. Eating two bananas will give you enough energy for an hour and a half workout! And when you're under that midday spell grab a banana and let it work its magic~
Now, we all know what tryptophan is but you may not be aware that tryptophan is found in bananas. This fancy amino acid is a natural mood booster; so next time you're feeling a little blue, consult a banana :) To piggyback the happiness factor, bananas are a great alternative to ibuprofen or midol during your un-welcomed monthly visitor since they help maintain and regulate blood glucose.
Just a few more benefits to share with you, otherwise this post will continue on to an undesirable length. Bananas are a stomach soother, so if you've come down with the flu, are a little hungover, or preggo, eating a banana will calm that unsettled tummy. Something you can try at home today: grab a banana, a mirror, a camera, and a chair!...bananas have been used to whiten teeth; you have to peel off a piece of the inside of the banana and rub it around your teeth for two minutes. The minerals in bananas {magnesium, manganese, and potassium} work into your teeth and whiten them!!

 So, go ahead.. Go BaNaNaS!
