Eating an apple each day can promote good health, but few people know that a banana each day can also keep the doctor away. The banana’s health benefits come from the many vitamins and nutrients that it contains. Many people prefer banana shakes over other types of milkshakes because they know the true benefits of bananas and milk. Here is a recipe for banana smoothie you could have for a fulfilling breakfast and a bit more about why it’s a great choice.
Bananas contain a good amount of insoluble fiber that travels through the digestive tract, sweeping up waste and producing bowel movements that are soft and easy to pass.
Bananas are rich in potassium, a mineral electrolyte that is essential for your heart. Potassium travels to cells throughout your body and helps the circulatory system deliver oxygen to the brain. This also helps maintain a regular heartbeat and a proper balance of water in the body.
Since bananas have good amount of calories, you can eat more to gain weight in a healthy way. Going for banana milkshakes is even better because it helps you enjoy several other banana shake benefits.
Bananas have a natural antacid effect which protects against stomach ulcers and ulcer damage. Eating bananas helps to stimulate the cells in your stomach that compose the acid-protective lining.
