5 health benefits of eating bananas

Bananas are a great snack to carry with you on the go. From being a mineral-enriched fruit to helping you stay full for longer, the health benefits of eating bananas are just endless really.

Hello energy
Having a banana is a great way to boost your energy levels. The carbohydrates and natural sugar can help keep you energised for much longer than a can of Red Bull.

Bye bye constipation
If you want to make sure everything down there is in good working order, then eat more bananas.  They contain just enough fibre to improve digestion and regulate bowel movements.

Healthy heart
The potassium in bananas helps keep your blood pressure in check. Regular consumption of bananas will help you maintain a normal heartbeat and reduce your chances of having a stroke.

Just keep smiling
When eaten, the protein in this fruit converts to serotonin, a substance known to enhance moods. So if you’re feeling down, a banana can help put you in a good mood.

No more cravings
The natural sugar in bananas mean you can have a healthy snack to fight sugar cravings.
