The more I learn about bananas, the more I am blown away!
Anthony Williams, the Medical Medium, shares a lot about bananas. If you are like me you will also be impressed with bananas after reading this!
Here is an excerpt, but do yourself a favor and read the entire post of his (link at bottom of this article):
“Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.
Bananas contain powerful anti-fungal and antibiotic compounds as well as protease inhibitors which can help stop viruses in their tracts. This makes them highly beneficial for chronic illnesses such as shingles, epstein barr, parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and lupus. Bananas are also particularly good for lowering blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological disorders, diarrhea, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, chron’s disease, stroke, and kidney, colon, and lung cancers.
Bananas contain high levels of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) which along with insulin helps to promote nutrient absorption and assimilation. Bananas support the natural acidophilus bacteria in the bowel which helps promote a healthy and functional digestive tract as well as keep the immune system healthy and strong. Bananas can prevent ulcers by strengthening the surface cells of the stomach lining which helps to create a thicker barrier against digestive acid and pepsin-the two main causes of ulcers. Bananas are also an excellent food for athletes as they can help replenish energy and revitalize the body instantly.”
Personally, I am an extremely heavy thinker so the part about it being good for heavy thinkers really caught my eye. One of the big things I have noticed both for myself and my clients, is that when we eat more bananas and other fruits of any kind, we no longer crave sweet things. This is due to the fact that our body and brain get the natural sugars that they need to function and that helps to alleviate cravings. Cravings come about for a reason!
I do hope you incorporate more bananas into your daily diet. It’s especially beneficial for the children and the elderly as they are both easy to eat and easy to assimilate.
