Bananas are one of the world’s most popular fruits, in average people eat about 100 bananas a year, due to it pleasant taste and also their great nutritional values. A 100g serving of bananas provides you 81 kcal, 20,3g of carbohydrates and 1.4g fibre, so it gives you lots of energy, but in a slowly released way.
The reason for the slow release is that bananas contain two types of fibres – pectin and starch, both of which you find in higher amounts in green unripe bananas. These fibres are known to help moderate the release of the natural sugar and transport it slowly into the bloodstream, after a meal, – which leaves you with an increased energy level for hours without any sugar cravings.
Apart from that, Bananas are loaded with an excellent source of potassium. Potassium is one of the most important electrolytes in the body, helping to regulate the fluid balance – a key factor in regulating your blood pressure.
Not only are bananas having these good effects in our bodies, they are also extremely delicious, and their pleasant flavour is what you can find as a lingering undertone in our HEAL recipe.
