The Benefits of Banana

The classic benefit: a potassium-packed fruit

Let’s get this one out of the way before we dive into the other cool things that bananas provide. As we all know: bananas are indeed a source of potassium - a mineral that helps with muscle and blood vessel function by maintaining a healthy balance of bodily fluids.

The underrated attributes: a source of magnesium and vitamin B6   

Bananas are a great source of magnesium which promotes healthy bone growth and is necessary for vitamin and mineral absorption. Another great benefit of this yellow skinned fruit is that it contains vitamin B6 - a vitamin that regulates blood cells, blood sugar levels and supports the production of antibodies to fight infection.
