Bananas are a super food so it’s no wonder the chimpanzees love them! They have high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin-a mood elevator.
Bananas pack an energy punch, plus they help regulate blood sugar. The are high in potassium and low in salt, rich in pectin, high in fiber and an aid to digestion.
This fabulous yellow fruit is high in antioxidants, providing free radicals and protection from chronic disease and they are also a natural antacid. The fruit counteracts calcium loss and can help reduce swelling. But more than anything, bananas are just a whole lot of fun to eat!!
