Bananas are one of the more popular fruits people around the world consume each and every day! But did you know that the more dark spots or patches a banana has the more ripe it is? When you eat a ripe banana, you are digesting more nutrients that benefit your immune system. Japanese scientists have also confirmed that the TNF found in banana helps against cancer!
Most people (Including me) throw away bananas as they become more yellow and brown. But bananas with brown spots are proven to be healthier than the ones with green peel or the fresh ones with no patches or spots. This is because the antioxidant levels are increased and the black spots in a banana means the sugar easier to digest (Because of the starch).
Bananas are a super fruit and can increase the number of white blood cells in your body. A ripe banana contains anti-cancer properties that can help prevent cell mutations. Doctors recommend that you consume 1-2 bananas a day to boost your immune system.
The impact that the banana has on the body is linked with the one of Lentinan which stimulates the immunity and is also known as anti –cancer agent.
In order to prevent vitamin loss, place the fully ripe bananas in a fridge or consume fresh bananas with dark spots immediately!
