The bananas are fruits that are considered to be a complete food, yet very often we underrate them. However, this exotic fruit has the potential to be the next great health revolution, because it’s loaded with nutrients.
The yellow-skin fruit is high in natural sugars, sucrose, and fructose, various nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and fibers. The regular consumption of bananas is able to provide great health benefits.
Bananas are the most consumed fruits in the U.S., even more that the number of consumed apples and oranges together.
While they grow, they first have a green color, and they don’t have spots on the skin, but as the bananas become riper, the brown spots start to appear and they cover the entire fruit.
You should know that the ripe bananas are actually much healthier than the green ones – the more spots they have, the more TNF they contain. TNF is fighting against abnormal cells in the body, so the ripe bananas can actually fight cancer successfully. TNF is promoting the communication between the body cells and the immune system, and it also supports the movement of the cells
Research proved that ripe bananas contain TNF that blocks the spreading and growth of the tumor cells by inducing apoptosis (cell death). In addition, the bananas are rich in antioxidants that can boost the immune system and the blood cells count.
Hence, the next time you find brown spotted bananas, do not avoid them, buy them and eat them as they are, because they are going to provide the best health benefits, as well as lots of energy.
That’s not all. The bananas have numerous others benefits with their cancer-fighting ability. Here are some of the most important ones:
