A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class
told his class about bananas.
He said the expression 'going bananas'
is from the effects of bananas on the brain.
Read on:



Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!! 
This is interesting.
 
After reading this, you'll never look at a banana
in the same way again.

Bananas contain 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 athletes.

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.
 


Depression: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. 

PMS:
 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 hemoglobin 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 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 a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) 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. 

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

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



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 irritation. 

Nerves:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.
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 chips. 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. 

Ulcers:
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:
