#32. Story Time: The Mood Enhancer

Hello Moms,

Bunch of bananas

It’s another Saturday and a great day already. I always subscribe to having an eventful weekend and we’ll discuss how you can enhance your mood with these few ideas.

How many of us know that banana enhances mood. You want to feel good and relaxed? Let’s talk about the benefits of banana.

1) Apart from the fact that bananas are naturally sweet, this is one fruit I introduce to my kids once it’s weaning time. According to a study conducted by the Imperial College of London found that children who ate just one banana per day had a 34% less chance of developing asthma (MNT.COM)

2) Digestive benefit: Bananas are a fascinating fruit in terms of their carbohydrate and sugar content. Even though bananas are a fruit that tastes quite sweet when ripe—containing 14-15 grams of total sugar—bananas receive a rating of low in their glycemic index (GI) value. GI measures the impact of a food on our blood sugar. This low GI value for bananas is most likely related to two of their carbohydrate-related qualities (whfoods.com)

3) The frequent consumption of bananas in the first two years of life may reduce the risk of developing childhood leukemia. As a good source of vitamin C, bananas can help combat the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer. High fiber intakes from fruits and vegetables like bananas are associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer (MNT.COM)

4) it preserves memories

5) Bananas Contain Nutrients That Moderate Blood Sugar Levels

6) they Contain Powerful Antioxidants

7) Bananas are able to make you full

8) they are a good source of potassium
