Bananas are inexpensive, and can be purchased at any supermarket or fruit shop. It is truly a convenient food. If just two bananas a day can help prevent cancer, what are you waiting for?
The average banana (less skin) is about 100 grams and about 87 kilocalories. A banana has only about 40 percent of the calories of a bowl of rice, which has 222 kilocalories, or a slice of toast with butter at 230.5 kilocalories. When you consider how filling and satisfying a banana is, you might call it the consummate diet food. Bananas also contain large amounts of fiber, calcium and magnesium, nutrients we often do not get enough of these days.
When all these pluses are factored in, bananas are indeed a nutritionally superior food. You can understand why bananas are called the home run king of fruits in Japan. Because bananas are so easy to eat, they are perfect for when you are too busy for breakfast. It is a well-known fact that when you skip breakfast, your body temperature drops, your motivation lags, and you lose your concentration because of inadequate levels of glucose, from which your brain derives its energy. In addition to glucose, banana sugars include fructose and sucrose, all three of which are absorbed into your body at different rates. This is why bananas provide long-lasting energy and satisfy your stomach, allowing you to get more work done.
Bananas are inexpensive, loaded with nutrients, bolster our immune system, and on top of that, help prevent cancer. Of course, it would be silly to gorge yourself on bananas all at once or eat nothing but bananas. It is important to eat a balanced diet. Include two bananas per day in your balanced diet and help increase your body’s immunity.
