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 fibre. 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.

Anaemia : High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anaemia.

 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 fibre, 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: Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit  that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because  they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine  withdrawal.

 Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we  are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium   levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

 Strokes: According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine,  eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

 Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill  off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the  yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or  surgical tape!

  So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it   to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three  times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the  other vitamins and minerals.
 It is also rich in potassium and is one of  the best value foods around So maybe it's time to change that well-known  phrase so that we say, 'A banana a day keeps the doctor away!'

PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time!

I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the
shoe...polish with dry cloth.

Amazing fruit !!!

j espère que vous lisez tous en anglais, sinon je traduirai  ce texte vante les vertus et les bienfaits de la banane!

Pas seulement avec une pomme par jour,  avec une banane par jour
Pas de docteur !!!
