The Banana Article

Ready to eat this banana
Now what? I was thinking of a something that I can write about.. then I just suddenly thought of BANANA because this is what I am currently munching on. Here comes the banana article, in our native tongue that  is Filipino (not Tagalog ha!), it is called "Saging". What are the benefits of eating Saging?  do you know that eating banana will help to lessen depression? That's why for all of you people who wanted to write a suicide note at this moment, might as well try to eat banana first before doing any stupid act. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, this is a kind of protein that the body usually converts into serotonin. It is known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier (just like what I am feeling right now.. *wink*)

When you are drunk, try to make a banana shake with honey as it is the quickest way of curing hangovers. The banana calms the stomach, while the honey builds up depleted blood sugar levels. If you are acidic and a candidate for Ulcer, banana neutralizes over-acidity. It also reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.. In addition to that, it also restore normal bowel movements if you are finding it difficult to do your thing.

Lastly, I love this fact that....banana helps to fight stress!!! When we are stressed we tend to have a high metabolic rates which reduces our potassium level that is helping our body to have a normal heartbeat, regulates our body's water balance and sends out oxygen to the brain. However, if we take a banana snack, it will be able to re-balance everything when we are stressed as it is rich in potassium.

I am not judging what an apple can do, BUUUUTT if you compare it with banana, it also has the power to make us healthy and to cure so many irregularities in our body. 

So guys, grab a banana once you read this article and munch to a better health ^_^.
