Bananas are high in iron, they can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood and so help in cases of anaemia. They are extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect food for helping to beat blood pressure. High in fibre, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action without resorting to laxatives. Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin – known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system. Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness. Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation. Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system. I add a link with details of this subject, and one on natural foods. natural_food_guide_vegetables. htm Hope this helps matador 89
