In todays modern life style we can see lot of changes in the food habits of the people in general. but the food habits must not be changed and even the people are attracted in eating and enjoying junk food which gives very much fat which is not good for health.
so here a person can eat natural food like fruits, vegetables and boiled food which is the very good suggestion for the long and good health.

Some properties of BANANA

Bananas. Containing three natural sugars - sucrose,
fructose and glucose combined with fiber, a banana gives an
instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.
Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough
energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the
banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep
fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial
number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add
to our daily diet.

According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst
people suffering from depression, many felt much better
after eating a banana. 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.

Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains
regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia :
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of
haemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium
yet low in salt, making it the perfect to beat blood
pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration
has just allowed the banana industry to make official
claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood
pressure and stroke.

Brain Power:
200 students at aTwickenham (Middlesex) school were helped
through their exams this year by eating bananas at
breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain
power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit
can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help
restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the
problem without resorting to laxatives.

One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a
banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms
the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up
depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and
re-hydrates your system.

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

Morning Sickness:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood
sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the
affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people
find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and

Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous

Overweight and at work?
Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found
pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like
chocolate and crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients,
researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in
high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid
panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood
sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every
two hours to keep levels steady.

The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal
disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is
the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in
over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and
reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control:
Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that
can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of
expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant
women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool

Seasonal Affective Disorder
(SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain
the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

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

Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the
heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your
body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic
rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These
can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana

According to research in 'The New England Journal of
Medicine 'eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut
the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!'

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When
you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein,
twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five
times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins
and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of
the best value foods around.

we can change "Apple a day keep doctor away" to "A banana a day keeps the
doctor away"

eat healthy!!!
